Yemeni forces kill zionist servant top Emirati commander in Ta’izz: TV
A senior military commander from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and three other Saudi-backed foreign mercenaries have been killed in an attack by Yemeni forces in the southwestern province of Ta’izz, reports say.
The fatalities came after Ansarullah fighters and allied Yemeni army units targeted an armored vehicle in the Dabab district of Ta’izz Province, the Yemeni al-Masirah television network reported.
The UAE has been actively assisting Saudi Arabia in the aggression against Yemen.
Meanwhile, the Yemeni army and allied forces fired several retaliatory missiles at a pro-Saudi militant base in the town of al-Hazm in the northern province of al-Jawf.
The missiles reportedly killed several foreign mercenaries and militants loyal Yemen’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.
A large number of Saudi officers and soldiers have lost their lives over the past months in attacks launched from Yemen. Scores of non-Saudi troops, including nationals of the Persian Gulf littoral Arab countries, have also been killed.
