Saudi-led coalition says 105 Iran-backed rebels killed around Yemen’s Marib

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — The Saudi-led military coalition backing the government in Yemen says that 105 Houthi rebels were killed in airstrikes around the strategic city of Marib.

That brings to more than 1,800 the number of Houthis the coalition says it has killed around Marib in strikes it has reported almost daily since October 11. The Iran-backed rebels rarely comment on losses, and AFP can’t independently verify the toll.

“Thirteen military vehicles were destroyed and 105” insurgents were killed in strikes in the past 24 hours in Al-Jawba, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Marib, and Al-Kassara, 30 kilometers northwest, the coalition says, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.
