Arab coalition strikes on Houthi’s training camps in west of Dhamar, south of Sanaa, killed at least 40 Houthi militiamen and injured others, local sources said.

Meanwhile, Al Arabiya sources said Houthi commander of an artillery brigade Mohammed al-Soufi was killed by a coalition strike in Jawaf, north of the country.

Soufi, believed to be from Ibb, is considered a prominent commander among Houthis and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The coalition also struck another training camp in Jaref, south of Sanaa.

Houthi militias and forces loyal to Saleh continue to target Taiz as after their defeat in the western front and deterring their attack on Jabal al-Han, they attacked the northern front and fired missiles on army posts and residential neighborhoods.
