MARIB (Debriefer)--At least 8 civilians were killed and 27 injured in Houthi missile and drone attacks in Yemen's Marib province on Thursday, medical sources said.
Eyewitnesses said the Houthis fired three ballistic missiles and two drones into the province.
Days ago, 14 civilians including a child were killed in a missile attack by the Houthi group in the province.
Battles between government and Houthi forces have been raging since February as the Iran-allied group is seeking to seize the oil-rich province.
The fresh military escalation coincided with a visit by an Omani delegation to Sanaa within regional efforts aimed at ending the Yemeni conflict which has caused the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.
