Houthi sniper shoots dead elderly man in Taiz

A Houthi sniper shot dead Ali Yahya Dhawaan a man in his sixties in central Yemen’s Taiz city on Tuesday, local sources have said. Dhawaan was going about his daily life driving his dump truck in the neighborhood of Almoshiki.

Houthi Shia extremists have been besieging Taiz city since 2015 with snipers deployed on hilltops around the city as well as landmines.

They have killed more than 18 thousand civilians in the past six years with sniper shootings, landmines and intentionally indiscriminate shelling of the city’s neighborhoods. The victims of sniper shooting are rarely adult civilians since the Shia extremists focus on children.
