Al Arabiya, 23 April 2018 - Al Arabiya has obtained footage showing the moment an Arab coalition raid struck and killed the Houthi militias leading political leader.

Houthi militias have announced the death of the head of their political council Saleh Ali al-Samad after a coalition raid.

Sammad headed the Houthi-led Supreme Political Council and was the second on the Arab Coalition’s list of wanted people in Yemen.

 

Al Arabiya sources said Sammad was killed in an air raid near the suburb of al-Buraihi, south of al-Hudaydah province.

Sources who spoke to Al Arabiya said Sammad was under house arrest in the western coast of al-Hudaydah in recent weeks because of differences within the militias.
