HUDAYDAH (Debriefer)--The Ansar Allah group, known as the Houthis, on Monday accused the pro-government joint forces of shelling populated neighbourhoods in Yemen's western province of Hudaydah.

A civilian was injured when artillery shells hit the neighbourhood of Al-Zaraneek Al-Sufla in the southern district of Al-Houk, the group said in a statement carried by the Sanaa-based Saba news agency.

On Sunday, the agency said two homes were damaged after the neighbourhood of Ghalil in downtown Hudaydah city came under shelling.

It quoted the Houthi governor of Hudaydah Mohammed Quhaym as saying the pro-government forces have been breaching the Stockholm agreement amid the silence of the UN.

The agreement was signed by the internationally recognised government and the Iran-allied Houthi group in late 2018.
