Iranian, Lebanese advisers said killed in explosion at Yemeni rebel camp

At least six Iranian and Lebanese advisers were killed in Yemen by a ballistic missile that exploded while being redeployed at a camp run by the Iran-backed Houthi rebel group, according to Arabic-language reports.

The reports carried by Saudi broadcaster Al Arabiya and Al-Hadath say dozens of Houthi fighters were also killed, and that the blast triggered a second explosion in a nearby factory and weapons dump near Yemen’s capital Sa’ana.

It was not clear from the reports if the Lebanese were linked with Hezbollah, another armed faction supported by Tehran.
