Over the last 24 hours, as many as 15 foreign mercenaries employed by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been reportedly killed by the Yemen Army’s Republican Guard and their popular committees (specifically, the Houthis) at the Al-‘Umari Camp near the city of Ta’iz in southern Yemen.

Yesterday, two westerners from Australia (Phillip Streetman) and the United Kingdom (Colonel Arthur Kingston) made the headlines for allegedly being killed in southern Yemen – both countries are reportedly investigating the death of these men.

According to today’s reports from the city of Ta’iz, the 15 foreign mercenaries were all believed to be part of a security contracting company that was hired by the Gulf countries to combat the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis in southern Yemen.

The following foreigners have been killed in the last 24 hours in southern Yemen:

`1 Mexican: Masyas Bakenbah (identification pending)

2 UK: Arthur Kingston (identification pending) and the other mercenary’s name has not been released by the Yemeni Republican Guard.

1 Frenchmen: the name has not been released by the Yemeni Republican Guard

1 Australian: Phillip Streetman (identification pending)

10 Colombians: These mercenaries have not had their identification revealed by the Yemeni Republican Guard.
