The Iran-backed Houthis rarely comment on losses, and AFP could not independently verify the toll.

"Fourteen military vehicles were destroyed and more than 115" insurgents were killed in strikes in the past 24 hours in Al-Jawba, about 50 kilometres (30 miles) south of Marib, and Al-Kassara, 30 kilometres northwest, the coalition said, according to the official Saudi Press Agency
