Al Houthi rebels have killed 11 people including three soldiers in Sa’ada north of Yemen, said the ministry of interior on its website late Thursday.
The rebels killed three soldiers who were on board of military car transporting materials from Sa’ada city to Majaz district, the ministry said.
A total of 8 tribesmen loyal to the government were also killed in the same district, the ministry said.
The ministry published the names of the 11 people who were killed, saying such an incident shows that Al Houthi rebels want to foil efforts of peace in Sa’ada.
The incident came two days after the Yemeni President and Emir of Qatar met in Sana’a to activate a former Qatari-brokered deal to end the 6-year old sporadic conflict between Al Houthi rebels and the Yemeni government.
The ministry considered this incident as a violation of the fragile truce which was announced last February, saying Al Houthi rebels committed 635 violations since then.
