Rebels killed as they try to infiltrate military area, says military.

The Yemeni army on Tuesday said they killed four Houthi rebels in Al Hudaydah, west of the country.

A statement from the press center affiliated to the army said the rebels were killed after they tried to infiltrate a military area in the east of Al Hudaydah.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2014, when Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including the capital Sana’a.


The crisis escalated in 2015 when a Saudi-led military coalition launched a devastating air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi territorial gains.

Tens of thousands of Yemenis, including civilians, are believed to have been killed in the conflict, which has led to one of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis as millions remain at risk of starvation.
