Mounting death toll in Marib as Shia militants try to storm besieged district

 

Thirty five men were killed and 51 wounded by this Monday evening as Shia Houthi militants are trying for the second day to overrun eastern Yemen Marib's besieged district of Abdiya, local sources from outside the encirclement have said.

The sources said the militia started on Sunday firing shells and artillery fire onto villages in the district which they have been besieging for half a month as they want to overrun it and crush the resistance of its pro-government population.

"Of the 35 thousand population, only hundreds are confronting the Houthi invasion attempt with light firearms, while Houthis are using missiles, cannons and cannons to shell the city," a local source said.

"Death toll keeps mounting and the increasing number of wounded is another adversity in the besieged district with no medicines, health facilities or even enough food," he said.
