At least one young man was killed and another wounded on Tuesday night in a mortar shell launched by the Iran-aligned Houthi militia south the port city of Hodeidah.

20-year-old Sha’aban Salem Ali was killed and his brother,35, wounded when a mortar shell hit their home in Hays district south of Hodeidah, Yazen Net, a local news site, reported, citing local sources.

The source said the Houthis launched mortar shells on al-Ma’al neighborhood, causing collateral damage to civilian homes.

The Iran-backed insurgents and pro-government forces exchange accusations of breaching the UN-sponsored Stockholm agreement that was signed in late 2018 when pro-government forces were about to storm the port city of Hodeidah.
