Several pro-Saudi militants loyal to Yemen’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi were killed Tuesday in two separate attacks carried out by Yemeni forces in the country’s southwestern province of Ta’izz.
The mercenaries were killed in an operation conducted by the Yemeni forces backed by fighters from Popular Committees in the al-Shaqab district of the province, Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.
Several other militants were killed in the al-Misrakh district of the same province, when the explosion of a land mine struck them.
Earlier in the day, Saudi military aircraft pounded Nihm district of the capital, Sana’a, leaving a child dead and several others injured.
Saudi warplanes also bombarded the house of Sheikh Hamad Abdulrahim Karami, a senior member the General People’s Congress political party, in the Naqil al-Ebel district of Ta’izz.
