The Human Rights Information and Training Center (HRITC) has documented 2206 violations committed by the Houthis in Yemen's central province of Taiz last December.

In a press statement issued on Saturday, the Taiz-based NGO, said its team documented "the killing of 47 civilians including 12 children and three women." The HRITC said that of the 12 children two were killed by sniper shooting.

As for the injuries 96 civilians including 27 children and four women were injured by Houthi shells and Katyucha rockets. One woman sustained injuries as a rebel sniper shot her and a man sustained injury in a landmine explosion.

The HRITC said that the rebel militia abducted 39 civilians, 23 of them are in forced disappearance now. The militia tortured 11 of the abductees and executed one.
