A Houthi ballistic missile attack late Sunday killed or injured more than two dozen civilians at a mosque and religious school in the central province of Marib, according to a senior official in Yemen’s internationally recognized government. 

Two Iranian-made ballistic missiles struck a residential area in Marib’s al-Juba district, Yemeni Information Minister Moammar Al Eryani said in a Twitter statement quoted by Reuters. The Marib governor’s office also said two ballistic missiles were used.
