At least 22 dead in clashes in Yemen's Taez

At least 22 people were killed in clashes between Yemeni forces and the Houthis (Ansarallah) on the outskirts of Taez in south-west Yemen, AFP reported Tuesday (December 20th).

The fighting late Monday north of Taez, held by pro-government forces but partly surrounded by the Houthis and their allies, left at least 14 Houthis and eight Yemeni soldiers dead, military sources said.

Residents said relative calm was restored on Tuesday.

In the north, two pro-government officers were killed in clashes around the Red Sea port town of Midi, the sources said, while a rights activist said a 13-year-old girl died when a shell fired by the Houthis hit her home in Dhaleh province.
