Coalition launched intensive air raids on the camp of the armored brigade 55 in Ibb targeting targeting weapons stores.

Earlier, Yemeni security and medical officials say mortar rounds fired by Houthis have killed six civilians in the central city of Taiz, the country's third largest.

The security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to brief reporters, say Thursday's shelling came as reinforcements arrived to help the rebels maintain their grip on the city.



The officials say rebel fighters retreating from the south, where pro-government forces backed by coalition airstrikes have been advancing in recent weeks, have joined the battle for Taiz.

The officials also reported airstrikes and ground fighting near the capital, Sanaa.
