An official in the pro-Iranian Houthi militia in Yemen died in Al-Rasool al-Azam Hospital in Beirut’s southern suburb, al-Dhahiya, on Saturday, sources confirmed on Tuesday to Al Arabiya English.
A Lebanese official told Reuters on Monday that the Houthi official died in a hospital in Lebanon without specifiying the location.
The Al-Rasool al-Azam Hospital is owned and controlled by the Lebanese Hezbollah.
Abdul Hakim al-Maori who held the post of the interior minister in the Houthi militia died at the age of 60 while receiving treatment for a chronic disease in a Lebanese hospital, Houthi-run Masirah TV said on Saturday.
But conflicting reports said that he died from injuries sustained from an air strike by the Arab Coalition on a post in Yemen.
Lebanon is the home of the Iran-backed group Hezbollah.
Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement also receives support from the Islamic Republic.
