10 Killed In Houthi Missile Attack On Yemen’s Mocha

ADEN, The Iran-allied Houthi rebels, fired a number of ballistic missiles, against pro-government military bases, in Yemen's Red Sea coastal city of Mocha on Wednesday evening, leaving 10 dead.

Around four ballistic missiles were fired by the rebels, against different military bases and civil institutions in Mocha, the pro-government security source said.

Two of the ballistic missiles struck food warehouses of the pro-government military forces, leaving six people killed and several others injured, the source added.

The Houthi-fired ballistic missiles also targeted a military base of the pro-government Giants Brigades.

Residents confirmed that, explosives-laden drones were used during the Houthi attack against Mocha.

Pro-government forces captured the strategic city of Mocha, on Yemen's western Red Sea coast, following ferocious battles against the Houthis in 2017.

Houthi rebels seized northern Yemeni provinces, including the capital Sanaa, in late 2014, forcing President Abdu-Rabbu Mansour Hadi and his government into exile, in neighbouring Saudi Arabia.
