A senior officer of the Houthi militia, Yahya al-Eryani and five of his bodyguards were killed in an Arab coalition air raid in Yemen on Wednesday.

The airstrike struck his car in the southern Khalid ibn al-Walid camp east of the coastal city of Mokha.

Violent clashes broke out between the Yemeni army loyal to the legitimate government and Houthi militia at the perimeter of Khalid Bin al-Waleed camp.

Local sources said that coalition aircraft supporting the Yemeni forces launched more than 30 airstrikes on the camp and its surroundings since Monday evening.
