Security sources have confirmed that a senior Houthi militia leader was killed in the frontlines near Najran but on Yemeni grounds.

Abdullah Qayed al-Fadeea was killed early Tuesday morning after Saudi-led Arab coalition forces targeted him and his convoy in a strike.

He was considered among the high ranks of the Houthi militias and was a battle leader for a number of military groups, as well as a deputy general supervisor on the frontline battle with Najran.

Six civilians were killed and eight wounded on Monday when two rockets fired by Houthi rebels hit a popular market in Taez, military and medical sources said.

Three children were among those killed in the explosions outside a post office in the Bir Bacha district of the southwestern city, they said.

Taez, the country's third city, is almost completely surrounded by the Iran-backed Shiite rebels and their allies, backers of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
