Hezbollah firmly denied reports that one of its fighters was martyred in Yemen.
“Al-Shar al-Awsat daily along with other media outlets reported that a Hezbollah fighter was martyred in Yemen. Hezbollah firmly denies such reports,” the party’s Media Relations said in a statement released on Saturday.
The Saudi-owned paper claimed earlier this week that a Hezbollah fighter was killed in the Yemeni province of Shabwa.
Yemen has been under brutal aggression by Saudi-US coalition since March 26. Hundreds of civilians have been killed, including women and children, and more others have been injured in the attack.
