At least 150 Saudi-led troops and mercenaries were killed in a ballistic missile attack on a Saudi military installation in the western countryside of Bab-el-Mandeb.

On Sunday, Yemeni sources said that the Yemeni army and the popular committees launched a Tochka missile on the headquarters of the Saudi military command in the southwestern province of Taiz.

The sources reported this death toll, noting that an Emirati colonel named “Sultan Bin Hweidan” was among the killed.

Among the casualties were Saudi, Emirati, and Moroccan troops; this was in addition to the death of at least 42 mercenaries hired by the US-based private military contractor, Blackwater, the sources added.

Sources added that at least 146 charred bodies arrived in Aden via the Al-Umari military camp, while also adding that the coalition forces sent a ship carrying medical supplies to the coast in order to assist the high number of casualties.
