The Arab coalition backing the legitimate government in Yemen has said that at least 341 Houthi militias have been killed after heavy fighting between the two sides during the past 72 hours.

This came after coalition air strikes on Saturday reportedly destroyed a Houthi military communication constellation which included advanced technological equipment operated with the help of foreign experts.

The coalition stressed that it would not allow an extremist organization to own such high quality and advanced equipment, clarifying the “camouflage operations and military counter weapons” prove that the targeted site was militarized by the Houthis.
