Houthi terrorists bombard civilian houses in Yemen’s Marib with Katyusha rockets

DUBAI: A rocket fired by the Iran-backed Houthi terrorists on a house on the outskirts of Yemen’s Marib killed a Yemeni woman and wounded three others, according to Saudi state-run news channel Al-Ekhbariya.
A local source said the Katyusha rocket – which is fired from a truck – struck the home of one of the families who had returned from being displaced to their area in Jadaan northwest of Marib province.
The source — who was quoted by Yemeni Armed Forces site “26 September” — said the rocket killed one woman and wounded three others, one critically.
The source said the coup terrorists continue to target populated areas with Katyusha rockets, mortars and artillery in breach of international and humanitarian law.

Egyptian voters urged to allow El-Sisi rule until 2030

  • Egyptian officials said the results should be ready in a week after the elections
  • Opposition parties asked voters to refuse the suggested changes

CAIRO: Egyptian pro-government media are urging a "Yes" vote on the second day of a nationwide referendum that would allow President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to stay in power until 2030.
Polls reopened at 0700 GMT on Sunday. Voting will continue through Monday to allow maximum turnout, which the government hopes will lend the referendum legitimacy.
Election officials say results are expected within a week.
Opposition parties have called on voters to reject the changes, blasted by critics as a major step back to authoritarianism.
Voting comes amid an unprecedented crackdown on dissent since the 2013 military ouster of an elected but divisive president.
El-Sisi came to power in 2014 and was re-elected for a second four-year term last year.
Trucks with loudspeakers drove around central Cairo Sunday morning urging high turnout.
