Military command says Houthi carnage proved themselves a bloody group
The military command of the Hodeidah Military Axis condemned the heinous Houthi mortar shelling that killed an injured 40 civilians in front of the gate of Al-Thawra General Hospital in Hodeidah last Thursday.

In a statement on Sunday the command said, "This crime has proved to the whole world and to the United Nations that this Houthis are a bloody group that does not hesitate at all to shed innocent blood and use (innocent blood) to gain advantages."
