Houthi militia killed, field commanders captured in Yemen

Published: Updated:

Confrontations erupted on Friday between the Popular Resistance and Houthi militia and the deposed president’s forces in Atma in Dhamar, located in the center of Yemen, according to local sources.

Sources told al-Arabiya that Resistance members had fired a missile at a rebels’ armed vehicle, when the militia tried to target military points on the highway. The missile killed at least five people, including Field Commander Abu Nasr, and destroyed the vehicle. After the attack, the resistance was also able to seize another Houthis vehicle.

According to the same sources, the resistance has captured Houthi field commander - Abu Malik al-Jermouzi - with seven other militia during the confrontations that erupted in one of the popular markets.

This comes amid widespread anger arousing against the rebels in all provinces, especially ones that are under their control.
