Arab coalition sources said on Thursday that an intelligence operation by the coalition led to the killing of former Yemeni air force commander, who defected to the Houthi militias, Major General Ibrahim Ali al-Shami.
According to the sources, al-Shami, who was responsible for several ballistic missile attacks, was killed in Sanaa.
Al-Shami was number 19 on the Arab coalition’s most wanted list with a reward of $10 million for information that could lead to his capture.
Meanwhile, the Houthis alleged that al-Shami died from a heart attack.
The former major general in the Yemeni national army had facilitated the theft of ballistic missiles on behalf of the Houthi militias.
