TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – A high-ranking Yemeni intelligence official loyal to the ex-regime, who had been injured in a Houthi drone attack on the country's largest air base, died of his wounds Sunday, medical sources said.
Intelligence Brigadier General Saleh Tamah was wounded Thursday in a strike on a military parade in Al-Anad air base, in Lahij province some 60 kilometers north of Yemen's second city Aden.
Medical sources told AFP that Tamah underwent several surgeries in a hospital in Aden but died Sunday morning.
Dozens of loyalists – including Tamah – were killed and 11 injured in Thursday's incident.
Among those injured were ex-Yemeni deputy chief of staff Saleh al-Zandani, senior army commander Fadel Hasan and Lahij governor Ahmad Abdullah al-Turki.
Turki and Zandani were transported to Saudi Arabia for treatment, a source said.
Following a truce agreed in Sweden in December, the UN is working to schedule a new round of consultations, possibly in Kuwait, aimed at drafting a political framework for resolution of the conflicts in Yemen.
