LONDON: A senior Houthi militia leader has been killed in an airstrike by the Saudi led Arab coalition in Hodeidah, western Yemen.

The attack on a Houthi militia meeting in Hodeidah two days ago led to the death of Abdel Karim Al-Ghammari, the second in command of the Iranian-backed Houthi militia’s “Ministry of Defense” as Al-Arabiya news channel reported.

Yemeni activists have been exchanging comments related to his death on social medi
Al-Ghammari, who was the Chief of Staff at the Ministry of Defense in Sanaa was most certainly killed while attending the military coordination meeting in Hodeidah.

No official confirmation had been published by the Houthi militia until now, and the sources reported that other key Houthi military leaders might have perished in the same attack.

Al-Ghammari was number 16 on the Saudi-led Arab Coalition of most-wanted list of coup leaders in Yemen.
