On Saturday, April 22, 2023, the official spokesperson for the National Resistance Forces tweet that Ansar Allah (Houthi) forces targeted a civilian home in Al-Majsh Al-Ala village, Mawza district, west of Taiz governorate, killing 3 and injuring 9, most of whom belonged to the same family. According to sources, the attack took place on the second day Eid al-Fitr, while the extended family was gathered for festivities.

Control over the territory surrounding the house was divided and actively contested at the time of the attack.
