SANAA, Yemen, Yemen's government announced the death of eight people in a projectile attack by Houthi rebels, that targeted a camp for displaced people in Yemen's northwestern province of Hajjah.
More than 27 others, mostly women and children, were wounded in the rebel attack. The injured were transported to al-Tiwal hospital in the Saudi border city of Jizan.
The camp has been recently established for families from Shalilah and Bani al-Haddad village, after they fled daily battles between government forces and Houthi rebels in the Yemeni border district of Harad.
The displaced camp is located near Harad, in a desert area controlled by government forces, which also control the northern part of Harad, just a few kilometres away from Jizan. While the southern part of Harad is under Houthis' control.
On Friday, the Houthi al-Masirah TV reported the death of four people in a Saudi-led air strike that targeted a house in Mastaba district south of Harad. The coalition did not comment on the rebels' report.
Saudi Arabia has been leading an Arab military coalition that intervened in Yemen in 2015, to support the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, after the Houthi rebels forced him into exile and seized much of the country's north, including the capital Sanaa.
The United Nations has been trying to broker a peace deal between Yemeni rival parties, to end the four-year civil war that has killed more than 10,000 people, mostly civilians, and displaced three million others and pushed the country on the brink of famine.
