Saudi coalition kills wanted Houthi commander

A Houthi commander was killed in Yemen’s Marib as a battle to capture the governate from the Hadi government rages on.

Abdul Latif Hammoud, a military officer who was wanted by the Saudi-led coalition, was killed in a coalition raid on Monday evening.

Local sources said a number of high-ranking Houthi figures were also killed in the raid.

Al-Mahdi was the Houthi’s commander of the Fourth Military Region and was first proclaimed as "Wanted" in November 2017.

The Saudi-led coalition had allocated $5 million as a reward for anyone who provided information on him.

The coalition also destroyed four vehicles allegedly belonging to the Houthis, killing all on board.
