Yemen Houthi political leader killed in coalition raid: rebels


EDDAH: The political leader of Yemen’s Houthi rebels, Saleh Al-Sammad, was killed last week in an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition, the Iran-allied rebels said on Monday.

Al-Sammad, head of the Houthi’s supreme political council, was “martyred” in the eastern province of Hodeidah on Thursday, the rebels said in a statement published on the Houthi-run Saba news agency.

He was No. 2 on the Saudi-led coalition’s most-wanted list, after leader Abdel Malek Al-Houthi.

The coalition had previously offered $20 million reward for any information that led to his arrest
