LONDON (Reuters) —Yemen’s Houthi forces fired a missile on Sunday at a school in the Taiz region where pro-government forces are stationed, killing 15 soldiers, as well as three children who were nearby, two residents and military sources said.

Two military sources said 15 soldiers were killed. They said the school had previously been used by Houthi forces and was taken over after pro-government fighters seized Kadha last week. The residents told Reuters the children – two brothers and their relative — were in the area when the missile struck the school in Kadha district in the west of Taiz governorate.

Fighting has recently escalated in the disputed Taiz in southwestern Yemen between fighters loyal to the internationally recognised government and the Houthi movement which ousted it from power in the capital Sanaa in 2014.

  • The article is biased. They want to blame the Houthis for killing three children. But what the hell were the soldiers doing in the school? 15 soldiers were killed. They shot at the soldiers, who were probably shooting at them, not at the children.

  • I see nothing biased in the article. It doesn’t make any judgement, it simply reports the facts.
