The president of Yemen heavily criticised Israel for demolishing or bombing houses of Palestinians in Israel, but since May he himself has been using a similar tactic where he bombs his opponent's family houses. This video shows the shelling of the home of Sheikh Hamud Al-Mikhlafi in Taiz city earlier today. The president has bombed many houses of his prominent opponents not only in Taiz but in several other cities. Most notably the capital Sanaa, where in May he began the tactic by dramatically firing a high-tech missile into the living room of Sheikh Sadiq Al-Ahmar the most senior sheikh in the country, while many leaders including his own intelligence chief were holding a meeting in that living room. The missile neatly struck through perimiter walls and entered the living room where it exploded at the exact time of the meeting killing dozens but not the sheikh nor the intelligence chief.
