RIYADH: The Saudi-led coalition supporting Yemen’s government said on Friday it had killed more than 180 Houthirebels in strikes south of the strategic city of Marib.

An operation “destroyed 10 military vehicles and killed more than 180 terrorist elements” in Abdiya and surrounding areas, south of Marib, the coalition said, cited by the official Saudi Press Agency.

The coalition has said hundreds of Iran-backed rebels have been killed in the battle for Marib in recent days.

The rebels rarely comment on losses and the toll could not be independently verified.
