Dozens of Iran-backed Houthi militants have been killed and several others wounded in attacks by the Yemeni army in the Al-Bayda governate, Saudi state-news channel Al-Ekhbariya reported.

A Yemeni military source said that the skirmishes between the army and the militia members were concentrated between the mountains of Al-Faliq and Masouda.

In a statement carried on the Yemeni Ministry of Defense’s website “September 26,” the source said that the clashes resulted in several dead and wounded within the militia, with 13 of them being captured.

Arab coalition fighters also launched raids targeting Houthi positions in Al-Bayda, which resulted in the destruction of a number of combat units and military weaponry.
