Houthis name six commanders killed while fighting Yemen army in recent battles

The Houthis admitted that six of their leaders were killed while fighting the Yemeni army on several battlefronts in recent days, according to Houthi-run Saba news agency. 

Col. Abdullatif Saleh Al-Ghafri, Col. Moin Abdullah Mar’ee, Col. Abdulbadee’a Abdulrabe Al-Huthi and Col. Ali Yahya Al-Wajih were buried in Sana’a on Wednesday, while the funerals of Brig. Gen. Yahya Abduljabbar Hassan Jahadan and Brig. Gen. Abdullah Mohammed Hunaish were held in the capital the previous day.

More than five years of war in Yemen has left 80 percent of its population reliant on humanitarian assistance, creating one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. 

As of Oct. 31, the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED), working with Yemen Data Project, had recorded more than 100,000 fatalities in Yemen since 2015, which includes more than 12,000 civilians.
