The Arab coalition forces launched air strikes in Yemen, on Friday, targeting a site and weapons depot belonging to the Houthi militia north-west of the province of Hajjah.

Al Arabiya correspondent reported that the fighters targeted a security checkpoint and a weapons storehouse in the Directorate of Hiran.

According to a military source, the jets targeted the Houthi locations, after monitoring their movements from the joint operations room.

The Yemeni army revealed on Thursday that 40 Houthi leaders were killed in the province of Hajjah in northwest Yemen last January during clashes and raids by the Arab coalition forces.

The Yemeni army website announced the killing of a senior field leader in the lines of the Houthi militia, named Abdul Qader Hadi Heba,along with a number of militants at Midi front in the western province of Hajjah, northern Yemen.

The site added that the Houthi leader Heba was killed on Tuesday in clashes with the National Army and joint Arab coalition forces.

Yemen’s national army has succeeded during the past two days in causing major damages in the ranks of the Houthi militias after targeting their weaponry with artillery and shelling a number of positions.

The Arab coalition fighters launched several air raids on the city of Midi targeting the militias in the western neighborhoods, causing significant casualties among the Houthis.
