ADEN, 8th April, 2018 (WAM) — A leader of the Iranian-backed Houthi militias, along with a large number of his fighters, were killed on Sunday in airstrikes launched by the fighter jets of the Saudi-led Coalition Forces at the crossroad of Jebel al-Ras, Zubaid and Heis to the south of Hodeidah.

The air raids caused a major setback for the militant group and its ranks on the Red Sea Coast of Yemen, forcing it to establish checkpoints to stop its large number of fleeing fighters, Yemeni sources said.


The coalition’s fighter jets, with the support of the UAE Armed Forces, also launched airstrikes at reinforcements and military vehicles of the Houthis at farms located on the outskirts of Al Jarahi Governorate.

In a terrorist act, the Iranian-backed Houthi militant group wounded all the members of a Yemeni family while they were in their house, located on the outskirts of Heis Governorate. The shelling also caused the destruction of the house.

The Arab Coalition is continuing its air raids and land operations against the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, their reinforcements, depots and military vehicles, with the ultimate objective of eliminating the pockets of Houthis on Yemen’s Red Sea Coast.
