Mass funeral held for Houthis killed in Saudi coalition strike

29 April 2018

Houthi supporters gather near the site of burial of Saleh al-Samad.

The Saudi state-run news agency SPA says its air defense forces intercepted four of the missiles and no casualties or damages have occurred. Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition that has been fighting the Houthis in neighboring Yemen since March 2015, after the movement drove Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi into exile.

Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television network also said a total of 38 Houthis had lost their lives in the strike that had targeted an interior ministry building.

Saudi Arabia backs Yemen's internationally recognized government and aims to defeat the Iran-backed Houthis to restore the government to power.

No casualties were reported, the statement added.

Riyadh and its close ally Washington accuse Iran of arming the Huthis, which Iran denies.

Al-Arabiya stated the strike hit a constructing belonging to Yemen's Inside Ministry.

Activists reported last December that Houthi rebels had gained control of the majority of Yemen's capital after battling forces loyal to President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was killed by Houthi fighters as he fled Sanaa.

The attacks came as newly appointed US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was scheduled to arrive in Riyadh for talks that are expected to include discussion of the conflict in Yemen, in which almost 10,000 people have been killed since the Saudi-led alliance became involved.

Yemen now stands at the brink of starvation.

The Saudi-led coalition against the rebels said that missiles were sent to the city of Jizan South of Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi-led countries engaged in the war on Yemen have also blockaded the already-impoverished country.
