A top Houthi commander and several militiamen were killed in a battle in the city of Hodeidah during clashes with the Yemeni army in the al-Duraihmi governorate, Al Arabiya.net reported.
A military source said that the commander was Mansour al-Soudi, also known as Abu Hmeid, who leads what the source called “quick operations” by Houthi militias in al-Duraihmi. He was killed along with several Houthi militiamen.
Meanwhile, over 330 sheikhs and dignitaries from the Hajjah province held their first conference on Wednesday, announcing their rejection of Houthi violations and Iranian interference in their country.
They reaffirmed their support of the Yemeni army, and called on the province’s residents to stand with the legitimate army and kick out the militias from their neighborhoods.
