At least five people were killed and 34 others were injured in a Houthi missile strike on Marib city on Wednesday night, according to Yemeni government media.

The news: A missile fell near a military building in the al-Matar neighbourhood on Wednesday, according to a civilian and a medical source.

  • Marib is the Yemeni government’s last stronghold in the north. It is located in an energy-producing region that has been the site of combat for the past year, with Houthi troops linked with Iran advancing on the city.
  • As both sides boosted up military operations, the fighting for Marib shattered UN-led truce negotiations.
  • Aid agency, Save the Children stated late Thursday that 28 civilians had been killed or injured in Yemen’s seven-year conflict, and that international law must be followed.

What’s going on: The Houthis have launched a series of missile and drone strikes on Saudi Arabia, which heads a coalition supporting the government’s struggle against the Houthis, as well as two unprecedented attacks on the United Arab Emirates, a coalition member, in the last few weeks.

  • The Saudi-led coalition has increased air raids on Houthi-held regions in Yemen in recent weeks, including one on a detention centre that killed over 90 people.
