Taiz (Debriefer) - One civilian was killed and 5 others wounded on Sunday in the Yemeni southwestern city of Taiz, which has been the scene for fierce battles pitting the national army and Houthi forces for nearly two weeks.
An artillery shell fell near the gate of the faculty of arts, in the vicinity of Taiz police department, claiming the life of one civilian at once and injuring others, eyewitnesses told Debriefer reporter.
