At least 14 civilians were killed and five injured in a Houthi attack on a gas station in northern Yemen

At least 14 civilians were injured in an attack by Houthi insurgents in the city of Marib, the current epicenter of the civil war that has plunged Yemen into a humanitarian catastrophe.

The attack took place on Saturday night when the rebels first fired an explosives-laden missile at a gas station in the Arrodha district to the north of the city while dozens of cars waited to be refueled.

Five minutes later, and when several ambulances were on the scene to treat the wounded in the first explosion, the Houthis blew up an explosives-laden drone.

14 civilians, including a girl, were killed in these attacks. Five others were injured. In addition, both attacks caused significant property damage, including seven cars and two ambulances, medical sources reported to the official Saba news agency.

The Houthis have not yet commented on this attack, which took place as part of the offensive to conquer the city, the last stronghold of the government in the north of the country.
