Dozens of Houthis killed, wounded and seven captured since their attack on Hajur tribes


More than 10 militants of the al-Houthi group have been killed and seven others captured since their attack on the sites of the Hajur tribes in Kesher district in the northwestern province of Hajjah, a field source said on Sunday.

The Houthis began a violent attack on the tribal positions in the district of Kesher since yesterday evening, and fierce fighting erupted between the two sides, which is still going on until the moment, the source told Al-Masdar online.

He said the fierce fighting between the two sides has, to date, resulted in the killing of more than 10 Houthi gunmen and the wounding of scores, in addition to the capturing of seven militants.

"In the hours of the night, five Houthis were captured and two were captured in the morning hours," he said.

He said that the losses on the part of the tribesmen were limited by the killing of one of the tribesmen, Abdallah Ali Zuber Riban, and two injured, at a time when no party had made progress on the ground.

The militants repelled Houthis attack after the Saudi Arabian coalition fighters launched raids on a number of al-Houthi positions, including a raid on a site and a 23-caliber cannon in the Al-mandela area.
