A child was seriously wounded in a mine explosion planted east of the five-year besieged city of Taiz by the Iran-allied Houthi rebels.

Ahmed Mokhtar was wounded when a landmine laid by Houthis went off while he was playing near his home in Bazara neighborhood, a rights source said.

According to reports, Houthis have laid over 200000 mines in Taiz alone.

A recent official report said as many as 1800 civilians in Taiz have been killed, wounded, or maimed as a result of landmines.
