SANA’A, Yemen – Hundreds of people gathered in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a on Saturday to attend the funeral of a senior Houthi military commander killed in a Saudi-led coalition airstrike.
Major General Nasser al-Qubari was killed in Yemen’s northern Saada province, Houthi-run SABA news agency reported on Thursday.
According to a Yemeni military source, al-Qubari was responsible for Houthi forces stationed near the border with Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi-led bombing campaign continues in Yemen with US backing. The United Nations estimated that more than 10,000 have been killed and more than three million people have been displaced since beginning of the war in March 2015.
