ADEN, Yemen, Fighters of the Houthi group launched an intensified shelling against areas controlled by the Yemeni government, in the southern province of al-Dhalea on Monday night, causing several explosions, a security official said.

The security source said, Katyusha rockets, fired by the Houthi rebels landed in the government-controlled district of Qa'atabah District and in the nearby area of Snah.

A number of local residents confirmed hearing various huge explosions in different parts of the government-controlled province of al-Dhalea.

For the first time in years of the ongoing military conflict, Houthi-fired missiles have managed to target these areas controlled by the government, according to local residents.

An official of the local government authority in al-Dhalea said that, the Iranian-backed Houthis fired two ballistic missiles that landed in non-residential areas in the province, causing no casualties.

On Saturday, ferocious battles took place in the country's southern province of al-Dhalea and resulted in the killing of some 80 fighters belonging to the Iranian-allied Houthi group, including key leaders, said the pro-government Giants Brigades, in a statement.

Last week, the Houthis launched a series of intensive attacks on positions of the government forces in the northern part of al-Dhalea and managed to control key mountainous hills overlooking government-controlled areas in the province.

The areas in the north and west of al-Dhalea have been witnessing continuous fighting between government forces and Houthi fighters for nearly four years.
