Sana’a: Yemeni forces, backed by allied Popular Committees loyal to Ansarullah movement, have killed a Saudi prince during an attack in the oil-rich province of Ma’rib in central Yemen, a report says.
Amir Mohammad bin Mosa’ed bin Jalawi, an assistant inspector general, and his comrades were killed when Yemeni forces targeted them in the al-Hajar region, Sa’ada Press news website reported on Friday.
This comes a day after Ansarullah forces killed several mercenaries fighting on Saudi Arabia’s behalf and militants loyal to Yemen’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the same region.
In a separate development, Yemeni forces captured at least 48 Emirati soldiers, including nine military officers during a series of clashes in the northern province of al-Jawf.
Over 130 militants were also captured during the fierce fighting, Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Ahd news agency reported.
