Dozens of Houthi fighters were killed on Sunday in raids launched by Arab Coalition forces in west Marib in Yemen, the Yemeni army said.
The Yemeni army on Sunday said its forces destroyed two drones that belong to the Iran-backed Houthi militia while the Arab Coalition destroyed several of the militia’s armored vehicles.

Abdul Raqib al-Houthi, one of the relatives of the Houthi militia’s leader, was killed in the clashes, an Al Arabiya correspondent said.
The Iran-backed group has continued its offensive in Marib, despite the United States and the United Nations calling for an end to the violence.
Earlier this month, US officials condemned the Houthis for continuing to obstruct progress towards peace in Yemen.
US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking visited Saudi Arabia to follow up on his efforts to broker a ceasefire between the Yemeni government and the Houthis.
Lenderking met with the Kingdom’s ambassador to Yemen to discuss the Riyadh agreement, which aims to reach a solution in Yemen.
The US diplomat condemned the “Houthis’ increasingly brutal attacks against civilians in Marib & the Houthis’ obstruction to the peace process.”
