DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:15 A.M.) – On Tuesday evening, Houthi-led forces renewed their assault on the western port city of Mocha, inflicting casualties upon Saudi-backed forces.
According to Al-Masdar News field correspondent Naseh Shaker, one soldier of the United Arab Emirates and 8 soldiers of the Aden-based government were killed in clashes on the coast of Taiz province.
The UAE soldier was identified as Hassan Abdullah Mohammed Al-Bashr by state media and the United Arab Emirates Army. He was killed in the Zahari region, north of the Red Sea port of Mocha.
So far, 85 soldiers of the United Arab Emirates have been killed since the Saudi-led coalition launched its intervention in support of exiled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi in March 2015.
