One young girl was killed Thursday in indiscriminate shelling launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia east of the port city of Hodeida, where fighting has been raging between Houthis and forces loyal to the internationally recognized government since last week.

Child Dalia Almesbahi was killed when a mortar shell fired by Houthi militia hit her home in eastern Hodeidah, locals told Republican Yemen.

They noted that the militia has been targeting populated areas with artillery shells and mortars for the past days, killing and wounding innocent civilians.

This came the same day a Houthi sniper shot a 9-year-old girl dead in Hays district, south of the port city of Hodeida.
