The strike also killed Abu Jihad al-Hamzi supervisor of preventive security, Abu Mortada the engineers battalion commander and Abu Ruhollah commander of the Jawf front.

The Yemeni National Army responded to an attack by the militias on al-Jawf province that killed three minors.

Thursday morning, Houthi military vehicles in Jawf province were also targeted while enroute to supply the militia controlled fronts.

A military source confirmed that the National Army monitored the military vehicles, which were carrying ammunition and supplies, heading towards the front.
