YEMEN: HOUTHI REBELS CARRY OUT HEAVY SHELLING ON TAEZ

Houthi rebels and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh heavily shelled residential neighborhoods in Taez on Wednesday night, Al-Arabiya's correspondent has reported. There have also been violent clashes between the national army and rebels in the areas surrounding air defense military camp in north of Taez.

Meanwhile, 11 headless bodies were found in the southern city of Aden where extremist groups are still active, a security source said on Wednesday, adding that residents found the bodies on Tuesday evening.

The police did not specify who the suspects are but it said the bodies were dumped in al-Hiswa natural reserve, west of Aden, more than a month ago. A security official said that the bodies were decomposed and slaughtered.

The internationally-recognised Yemeni authorities have declared Aden as a temporary capital after regaining restoring it in 2015 from Houthi militias that control the capital Sanaa.
