Security sources have confirmed that a senior Houthi militia leader was killed in the frontlines near Najran but on Yemeni grounds.

Abdullah Qayed al-Fadeea was killed early Tuesday morning after Saudi-led Arab coalition forces targeted him and his convoy in a strike.

He was considered among the high ranks of the Houthi militias and was a battle leader for a number of military groups, as well as a deputy general supervisor on the frontline battle with Najran.
