On Sunday, nearly 150 Saudi-led Coalition soldiers and mercenaries were killed in a ballistic missile strike on a Saudi military installation in western Bab-el-Mandeb.

Yemeni sources told al-Manar that the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the popular committees launched a Tochka missile into the Saudi military installation, killing several coalition members in the southwestern province of Taiz.

According to the Saudi-led Coalition command, a top Saudi military commander and an Emirati officer were among the casualties.

Saudi Colonel Abdullah al-Sahyan and Emirati officer Sultan al-Kitbi were killed at dawn on Monday, they were reportedly “carrying out their duties in supervising operations to liberate Taiz”, according to a statement made by a Saudi military officer to the SPA news agency said.

A Yemeni officer told the AFP that both officers were killed when rebels fired a rocket at a coastal road in the strategic province, which overlooks the Bab al-Mandeb Strait.

Also, among the casualties, were Saudi, Emirati, Morrocan troops, in addition to at least 42 mercenaries hired by the US-based private military contractor, Blackwater Group

At least 146 charred bodies arrived in Aden and the Al-Umari Military Camp – they were transferred to a ship carrying medical supplies to the coast.

The Saudi media has claimed the death toll did not exceed 80 military personnel; however, this is very unlikely after pictures surfaced from the carnage.
