Violent clashes broke out between coalition gunmen in Taiz, killing and wounding civilians, local sources reported on Wednesday.

Residents said that they have suffered the ravages of heavy fighting in some neighborhoods since dawn, in which all kinds of weapons were used.

They confirmed that the clashes between Ghazwan al-Makhlafi faction and Ghadhar al-Sharabi faction, two leaders of the Al-Islah party, extended from Waday al-Qadi north of Taiz to the Aljamhwary areas in the city center.

The residents added that the fighters targeted houses with machine guns and shells, killing a woman and injuring a girl when a shell hit their house as a preliminary toll.

Tensions erupted between the two sides after an ambush was carried out by the Ghadhar against Ghazwan, which resulted in the latter being severely injured.
