Rockets fired by Yemen’s Huthi rebels killed five people and wounded 18 as they struck a residential area in government stronghold Marib.

State-run news agency Saba gave the same death toll, but reported that 22 people were wounded in unguided rocket strikes.

The war in Yemen pitches the internationally recognized government of Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and against the Huthi fighters.

The conflict has left nearly ten thousands people dead and more than fifty-five thousands wounded.

More than two thousands and two others have died from cholera and millions are on the verge of famine in what the United Nations says is the world’s gravest humanitarian crisis.
