Saudi Daily Says Three 'Hizbullah Experts' Killed in Yemenإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Three Hizbullah military experts have been killed in a Saudi-led airstrike in Yemen, a Saudi daily reported on Monday.
Al-Riyadh newspaper said the strike targeted a house near the Grand Mosque in the Haradh area, which lies in the Hajjah Governorate that borders Saudi Arabia.
“One of the experts was part of the (Huthi) militias’ communications unit while the two others worked in the domain of explosives and the planting of mines, especially sea mines and the rigging of boats used by the militias on the western coast,” al-Riyadh said.
“The bodies of the three Lebanese were transferred to Sanaa while the bodies of seven members of the Huthi militias were placed in the al-Thawra Hospital in Hajjah,” the newspaper added.
Saudi officials had previously accused Hizbullah of offering missile expertise to the rebels, claims denied by Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
The accusations followed the firing of a ballistic missile from Yemen at the Saudi capital last month.
Hizbullah has recently endorsed a government statement affirming that Lebanese parties would refrain from interfering in regional conflicts. The statement was part of an agreement under which Prime Minister Saad Hariri rescinded a resignation announced from Riyadh.
