Saudi-led coalition says it has killed over 260 Houthi rebels in Yemen

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen says it has killed more than 260 Houthi rebels in the past three days near the strategic city of Marib.

“Thirty-six military vehicles were destroyed and more than 264” rebel fighters were killed in strikes in the past 72 hours in Al-Jawba, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Marib, and Al-Kassara, 30 kilometers northwest, the coalition says, cited by the Saudi Press Agency.

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