Late on June 10, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) launched four ballistic missiles and a suicide drone at the central Yemeni city of Ma’rib, which is held by the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies.

The Saudi-backed wing of the Yemeni military told the al-Arabiya TV that the missiles landed in residential areas. One of the missile fell in the vicinity of Ma’rib prison, while another struck a shopping center. The military also claimed that the drone hit first responders.

According to al-Arabiya, five people were killed as a result of the attack. The death toll will likely rise in the upcoming few hours as dozens of people were wounded.

Meanwhile, a source close to the Houthis told the al-Mayadeen TV that the attack targeted gatherings of the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies in Ma’rib city.

“The air force targeted Sahn al-Jin Camp east of Ma’rib [city] with a drone,” the source said, without providing any additional information.

This was the second such attack on Ma’rib city this month. On June 5, a missile, allegedly launched by the Houthis, struck a gas station in al-Rawdah neighborhood. 21 people were killed.

The Houthis and their local allies have been leading a large-scale ground offensive against Saudi-backed forces in Ma’rib for well over three months now. The Yemeni group wants to capture the city and nearby oil facilities.
