Yemen: 40 people dead in clashes between Houthi rebels and pro-government forces around city of Taez


Forty people were killed in fighting between Shiite Houthi rebels and pro-government forces around southwest Yemen’s main city of Taez, military sources said on Thursday.

Colonel Sadeq al-Hassani, spokesman for the loyalist forces, told AFP that 27 Houthis and 13 pro-government fighters were killed, as a rebel offensive aimed at reimposing a siege of the city was repelled on Wednesday.

Also on Wednesday, five Houthis and allied rebels were killed when loyalists backed by Saudi-led Arab coalition air strikes and artillery fought off a rebel assault in the nearby Kahbub area, pro-government officials said.

AFP could not independently verify the tolls and the rebels rarely acknowledge their losses.
