A senior Houthi field commander was killed along with 15 other militiamen in clashes with the Yemeni army in Hodeidah.

Houthi Commander Abdullah Al-Mahtoori was killed in clashes with the Yemeni army near the Kilo 16 area east of Hodeidah.

Meanwhile, an Al Arabiya reporter in Hodeidah said the Yemeni army passed the Kilo 16 area, and is fighting fierce battles in the city of Al-Saleh, which lies three kilometers away from Hodeidah.

The army said it will continue pushing forward until it rids the city of Houthi militia elements, adding that it is sending reinforcements including artillery, snipers and combat units equipped with sophisticated weapons.
