Moments ago inside the strategic city of Ta’iz in southern Yemen, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and their popular committees – specifically, the Houthis – reportedly killed 7 foreign mercenaries that were fighting alongside the Hadi loyalists during the fierce battle at the ‘Umari Camp.

According to Al-Masdar’s field journalist Tony Toh, 6 Columbian mercenaries and their Australian leader were among the militants killed by the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis at the ‘Umari Camp this afternoon.

The Australian national was identified as Phillip Streetman – a foreign mercenary that was employed by the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) to lead a band of Columbian fighters against the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis in southern Yemen.

Streetman is the first Australian citizen to be reportedly killed in the Yemen War.

Similar to Streetman, the Columbian mercenaries were employed by the United Arab Emirates to fight the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis in southern Yemen.

As an Aussie, let me express my shame that a fellow Australian sank so low as to join the criminal war against the people of Yemen. Streetman, you were a foul stain on your family and your country. Enjoy h**l along with your fellow criminal killers.
God preserve the heroic people of Yemen and God d**n the stinking Wahhabist heretic tyrants of Saudi Arabia, soon may be its fall.
