SANAA, Oct. 6 (Xinhua) -- A man was killed on Tuesday when a residential neighborhood was hit by shelling in Yemen's Red Sea port city of Hodeidah, medics told Xinhua.

Seven others from his family were wounded in the shelling on al-Rabasah neighborhood in the southern part of the city, the medics in Althawra hospital said.

Hodeidah has seen a shaky cease-fire between the government forces and the Houthi militia since both sides reached a UN-sponsored truce agreement in Stockholm in December 2018.

The port city is under the control of the Houthis, while the government forces have advanced to the southern districts.

Yemen has been mired in civil war since late 2014, when the Houthi militia seized control of several northern provinces and forced the internationally-recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi out of the capital Sanaa. Enditem
