Houtis kill 22 UAE soldiers in Yemen


Dubai: Twenty-two soldiers of the United Arab Emirates were killed in Yemen while taking part in a Saudi-led campaign against the Houthis on Friday.

The Houthis said they fired a rocket at a weapons cache in a camp used by Gulf coalition forces in the central Marib area, killing dozens of Emirati and Yemeni soldiers and destroying a number of Apache helicopters and armed vehicles.

Saudi Arabia and a coalition of other Sunni Muslim Gulf states have been fighting since March to restore Yemen’s exiled government and repel the Iran-allied Shi’ite Houthis, who took control of the capital Sanaa in September last year.
