A child was killed and several members of her family were injured as a preliminary toll on Tuesday night as a result of the intensive and indiscriminate ground shelling by coalition forces and mercenaries on the district of al-Durayhmi.
Local sources from the coastal province of Hodeidah reported that the Saudi-UAE mercenaries had shelled the city of Durayhmi with more than 50 Katyusha rockets, resulting in the killing of the child Shafika Ajili, the wounding of her family members and a number of citizens, while resulting in a significant damage to homes and property.
The second crime was committed this early Wednesday morning when a woman was killed due to the coalition continuous escalation of its offensive operations in an attempt to advance into the port city of Hodediah.
