Incident: Bombing a residential house in Maqbana district

On the evening of 24 August 2023, local news outlets and sources on social media reported the bombing of a civilian’s house in the Al-Ghawsha village, a small sector lying in Akhdu’ Asfal, one of the sub-districts of the Maqbana district west of the Yemeni governorate of Taiz. This particular zone was in-between frontlines and experienced heightened military confrontation in the days preceding the attack. The bomb resulted in 5 casualties, 4 of which were children, and 12 wounded, including 8 women and 2 children, most of whom belonged to a single family. The parties involved exchanged accusations and held differing opinions regarding the responsibility for the bombing; however, investigative findings suggest that the Joint Forces of the western coast may be the perpetrator of the attack.
