MARIB (Debriefer)--Two senior Houthi military leaders were killed in clashes with the forces of Yemen's internationally recognised government, the information centre of the government forces said on Monday.

Abu Saleh Al-Madani, the deputy chief of staff of the Houthi forces, and Mohammed Al-Banous, the commander of the reserve forces, were killed in recent battles in the northeastern province of Marib, it said.

No Houthi official could be reached for comment.

In recent weeks, the Iran-allied Houthi group advanced against pro-government forces and tribal fighters, seizing five districts in Marib, Bayda and Shabwa provinces.
