The Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen targeted a fuel station in Shabwa on Wednesday using a ballistic missile.

Local sources said there were civilian casualties reported in the incident, which followed earlier attacks by the Houthis in the southern Marib that was intercepted by Yemen’s army.

The operations were the Houthi militias attempt to recapture Al-Faliha hill and the Al-Ridha mountain range in Marib.

According to a military source, Houthis deployed in military vehicles on Wednesday morning to carry out the simultaneous attacks.

The Yemeni army confirmed that more than 20 Houthis were killed with dozens wounded in operations against the Houthis in Al-Faliha area. Two military vehicles were also destroyed in the mission.
