Houthis killed in clashes with Yemeni army

Several elements of the Houthi militia were killed and wounded in confrontations with Yemeni armed forces in west of the country’s Al-Jawf province, Saudi state news agency reported on Sunday.

The clashes happened after the Iranian-backed militia tried to sneak into the army’s sites in the fronts of Sadah and Waqaz in Al-Masloup district. The troops warded off the Houthis’ attempt and forced them to leave.

Earlier this month, the Houthi militia fired two ballistic missiles from Sanaa that landed in the northern province of Saada.
