ADEN, Yemen, Fighters of the Houthi rebel group intensified artillery shelling against a number of government-controlled areas in Yemen's Red Sea port city of Hodeidah, on Sunday, a military official said.
The pro-government military official said that, heavy Houthi artillery shelling targeted several houses in Mundhar residential area, located to the south of Hodeidah city, causing injuries and damages in the area.
Some of the artillery shells landed on a house and destroyed it, causing also severe damages to other houses located in the same area, he said.
The Houthi indiscriminate bombardment forced scores of families to leave their houses, located near the government-controlled areas, for fear of new attacks, the source added.
Sources of the pro-government Giants Brigades, said, a camp of displaced people in Hodeidah's Khokha district, south of the city, was targeted by the Houthi shelling.
The Houthi-fired shells landed on displaced tents, leaving three girls injured, said the sources based in Hodeidah.
Yamani factories in Hodeidah's eastern part were affected by Houthi-fired mortar shells, causing partial damages to private institution and leaving two workers injured.
The injured workers were transferred immediately by an ambulance to receive treatment at a pro-government field hospital.
The Yemeni warring parties reached a peace deal on Hodeidah in Dec last year, as the first step towards brokering a comprehensive political solution.
Sporadic breaches, however, are daily recorded in Hodeidah, as the two sides failed to withdraw their forces in accordance with the agreement reached in the Swedish capital.
