On Tuesday afternoon in southern Yemen, the Saudi-led Coalition suffered a major blow to their foreign forces, as several western mercenaries from Colombia, Australia, and Great Britain were reportedly killed by the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis near the strategic city of Ta’iz.

The first reports to surface from the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard on Tuesday were in regards to the death of 6 Colombian mercenaries and their Australian field commander, Phillip Streetman.

Accoridng to the reports from the Republican Guard, Streetman and his Colombian comrades were mercenaries paid by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to fight the Yemeni Army and their popular committees that were defeating the better equipped Gulf armies (UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia) and the Hadi loyalists.

Following the news of the dead mercenaries in Ta’iz, Au Al-Masdar News was informed of another foreigner killed in southern Yemen; however, this time, it was a former officer in the British Army that was paid by the UAE to fight the Yemeni Army.

According to Al-Masdar’s source in southern Yemen, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard killed Colonel Arthur Kingston (formerly of the British Royal Army) at the Al-‘Umari Camp near the city of Ta’iz – his possessions were confiscated by the Yemeni Army.

Both Streetman and Kingston are believed to be foreign military contractors that were paid by the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
