Yemen’s Houthi militia said on Friday that Ibrahim Badreddin al-Houthi, the brother of the Houthi leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, has been killed, the Iran-aligned militia’s Al-Masirah television reported.

According to Al Arabiya sources, Ibrahim was killed three days ago along with eight of his bodyguards.

“The treacherous hands affiliated with US-Israeli aggression and [their] tools assassinated Ibrahim Badreddin al-Houthi,” the report said, citing a statement from the Interior Ministry run by the Houthi militia.
