The Houthi-Saleh militias bombed populated neighborhoods in east of Taiz, using mortars, tanks and other heavy weapons.
Meanwhile, the US Army General Joseph Votel told the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday said that Yemen may be used as a sanctuary for attacks against the US.
Votel expressed concern over another contested maritime chokepoint in the region, referring to tensions with Iran over the Strait of Hormuz.
His warnings to Congress comes just days after White House officials confirmed that the Trump administration are mulling US actions in Yemen, specifically against Houthi militias to liberate the strategic al-Hudaydah port.
Reports in recent weeks also pointed out the Iranian intelligences sources who have helped Houthi militias recalibrate their missiles to reach further distances, increasing the chances of attacks on Saudi soil from the Yemeni capital Sanaa.
