Three Yemenis were killed and nearly 16 others injured by airstrikes launched by the Houthi rebels against the country's oil-rich province of Marib on Thursday, a government official told Xinhua.

"The Houthis launched a coordinated attack using ballistic missiles and drones against the government-controlled areas in Marib," the local government source said on condition of anonymity.

He confirmed that the Houthi attack resulted in the killing of three civilians and injuring of nearly 16 others.

"A number of ambulances and rescue teams rushed to the bombing sites and are still working there," he said.
