High ranking leaders among 10 Houthis killed in Saudi-led airstrikes in Yemen’s Marib
SANAA: Ten Houthi rebels were killed by Saudi-led Arab coalition airstrikes in Yemen‘s central province of Marib on Saturday, a Yemeni government military source told Xinhua.
“The ten, including three high-ranking leaders, were hit while driving in two vehicles in Sirwah district, a few miles east of Al-Kasarah frontline,” the source in Marib said on condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, the Houthi-run al-Masirah TV reported seven coalition airstrikes on Sirwah.
The Houthis began in February a major offensive on Marib in an attempt to seize control of the oil-rich province, the government’s last northern stronghold.
Yemen’s civil war flared up in late 2014 when the Iran-backed Houthi rebels seized control of much of the country’s north and forced the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi out of the capital Sanaa.
The Saudi-led Arab coalition intervened in the Yemeni conflict in March 2015 to support Hadi’s government.-Xinhua
