Three Al Houthi rebels were killed and five others were injured in an ambush made by the army, said the rebels spokesman Friday.
“The army made an ambush today Friday and killed three of our people, and injured five others in the road between Sana’a and Sa’ada,” said the rebels’ spokesman, Yousef Al Faishi in a statement sent to local media.
Al Faishi identified the three men who were killed as Ahmed Hassan Jamilah, Ahmed Salem Jamilah and Ahmed Ali Hadi.
The rebels spokesman denied earlier accusations of the government that Al Houthi rebels killed 11 people including three soldiers in an ambush in Majaz district.
He said the accusations are untrue and baseless and what happened in district was only a tribal conflict.
On Thursday, the ministry of interior said that Al Houthi rebels killed 11 people including 8 tribesmen loyal to the government and three soldiers in Majaz district .
