Riyadh: The Saudi-led coalition battling rebels in Yemen today said its forces killed eight members of Lebanon’s Shiite militant group Hezbollah in northern Yemen, near the Saudi border.

“The coalition killed 41 terrorist elements in Maran and destroyed their vehicles and equipment. Among the dead were eight members of Lebanese Hezbollah, including a commander,” coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said in a statement, without providing further details.

Maran is in Saada province, a stronghold of Yemen’s Shiite Huthi rebels who are backed by Iran. (AFP)
