AL-MUKALLA, Oct 28 (Asia Free Press): The Saudi-led military coalition on Wednesday claimed they had killed 105 Houthi rebels in airstrikes around Yemen’s strategic city of Marib.
According to Saudi Press Agency, 13 military vehicles were also destroyed during the airstrikes.
The collation forces hit the Al-Jawba, and Al-Kassara regions in the Marib, capital of the oil-rich province, the agency said.
Earlier, the collation claimed that they killed over 2,000 rebel in airstrikes during last two weeks in Yemen.
The UN Security Council last week called for “de-escalation” in Yemen, in a unanimously adopted statement to counter “the growing risk of large-scale famine” in the country.
Meanwhile, a group of EU diplomats visiting the port city of Aden, the interim capital of Yemen, has expressed support for the internationally recognized government of Yemen, hailed its return to Aden, and called upon the country’s political forces to accelerate the full implementation of the Saudi-brokered Riyadh Agreement.
