Twenty-five Houthi militias, among them a senior leader, were killed near Najran’s border region on Sunday.

Abu Shehab al-Hamzi was a senior militia leader among the Houthis ranks in Yemen.

Hundrerds of Houthi militias have been killed in battles on the Saudi Arabia-Yemen border in recent weeks after extensive military raids from the Arab coalition.

The Arab coalition has been using Apache helicopters to target and chase Houthi militias and those loyal to ousted former president Ali Abdullah Saleh from the mountainous border regions.
