Saudi-led coalition says 105 Yemen rebels killed in Marib battle

The Saudi-led coalition backing the government in Yemen says it has killed 105 Houthi rebels in airstrikes near the strategic city of Marib.

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

The Iran-backed Houthis rarely comment on losses, and AFP cannot independently verify the toll.
