MARIB, Sept. 20 (YPA) – A senior military commander loyal to Saudi-led coalition aggression was killed Saturday during confrontations with the Yemeni army and popular committees in Marib province, a military source said

The source explained  that the Yemeni army and popular committees fought fierce battles against Islah militias, which are part of what is known as the “173th Infantry Brigade” in Jubeh district.

Dozens of mercenaries were killed and wounded in the fighting, including military commanders, most notably Mohammed Ali al-Ameri, the source added.
