An investigative officer working for Aden’s airport was killed by unknown gunmen late Tuesday in front of his house in the war-torn country’s second city, Al Arabiya News Channel reported on Wednesday.

Two other policemen were also killed by gunmen in the al-Mansour neighborhood, where Col. Amin Shayif, who was responsible for investigation in Aden airport, was assassinated.

No further details were available.

In a separate story, a child was killed on Wednesday and three civilians were wounded after Iran-backed Houthi militias and their allied forces fired Katyusha rockets on a village west of the southwestern city of Taez.

Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition has launched attacks at Houthi sites in Al-Dhabab and Al-Masrakh areas in Taez, leaving several killed and wounded.

The coalition also targeted arms depots in Bani Hashish directorate in Sanaa province while the pro-government resistance captured large parts of the Naham directorate east of the province.
