Child Helene Mohammed was shot dead on Wednesday by a Houthi-affiliated sniper in Gurab district, west the besieged city of Taiz.

The 12-year-old kid was gunned down while playing near her houses by a Houthi snipper positioned in Al Modarghat hill, local news site Alharf reported.

According to the source, the girl was moved to a nearby hospital where she died.

Since the Iran-allied militia imposed a deadly siege on Taiz city in 2015, Houthi snipers have claimed hundreds of civilians lives in the city, most of whom children and women.
