Houthi militias' political leader Saleh al-Sammad killed in coalition raid


Houthi militias have announced the death of the head of their political council Saleh Ali al-Sammad after a coalition raid.

Sammad headed the Houthi-led Supreme Political Council and was the second on the Arab Coalition’s list of wanted people in Yemen.

Al Arabiya sources said Sammad was killed in an air raid near the suburb of al-Buraihi, south of al-Hudaydah province.

Sources said Sammad was under house arrest in the western coast of al-Hudaydah in recent weeks because of differences within the militias.
