Senior Yemeni general killed in Houthi missile attack

Senior Yemeni general killed in Houthi missile attack
February 22, 2017
SANAA - Yemen's deputy chief of staff was killed on Wednesday when the armed Houthi movement battling government forces fired a ballistic missile at an army camp on the Red Sea coast, according to a military source. The attack killing Major General Ahmed Saif al-Yafei was a blow to Yemeni government forces and hit outside the strategic coastal city of al-Mokha, which they captured from the Iran-allied Houthis last month. A military coalition led by Saudi Arabia intervened in Yemen's civil war nearly two years ago to back President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi after he was ousted from the capital Sanaa by Houthi forces. "Major General Ahmed Saif al-Yafei was killed along with several others when the missile hit the camp near al-Mokha city early this morning," the military source, who is also a member of the general's family, told Reuters. Saudi-owned Arabiya TV also reported Yafei's death. Al-Mokha lies close to the Bab al-Mandab strait through which much of the world's oil passes. -Reutuers
