Saudi Arabia has revealed on Wednesday that it sent military reinforcements to Yemen’s Hajjah, north west of the country, to join the Arab coalition backing the legitimate national army.

A military source said that the military force included armored vehicles, engineering teams and hundreds of soldiers.

Recently, the Houthi militias have been inflicted with huge loses among its leadership in the directorate of Hiran.

According to military sources, Houthi prominent commanders Abdul Wahab Mohammed al-Hussam and Judge Salah Massad Khamousi were killed in battles with the Yemeni army.

For its part, a military source said that the Yemeni army, with the support of the coalition, killed more than 200 Houthi fighters within 3 days, mobilized by the coup militias from Hajjah governorate.

The coalition fighter jets also destroyed 18 positions used by the Houthi militias to launch ballistic missiles.
