Six commanders of the Iran-backed Houthi militias were killed in fighting last week with the Yemeni national army on the Malahit front in western Saada.

The army had launched several military operations against the Houthis on al-Malahit, leaving scores of their members dead.

The military is waging fierce battles in the Houthi-held northern Saada region on five fronts.

The army, backed by the Saudi-led Arab coalition, had launched an operation to liberate Saada from the militias in June.

In the northeastern al-Jawf region, the army attacked a militant position on the western Ham front.

The shelling left several Houthi members dead and wounded.

On the al-Sahlan front, the Arab coalition launched an air strike against a Houthi vehicle.
