Yemen rebels kill 15 in new truce breach: military, medics

YEMEN-CONFLICT-OIL

Sanaa: Yemeni rebels attacked pro-government forces in the eastern Marib province, killing 15 fighters, military sources and medics said today, the first day of a ceasefire called for by the United Nations.

The Iran-backed rebels “violated the truce” and attacked positions in Mas, in province’s west, killing 15 people and wounding 20 more, a loyalist military source told AFP.

Medical sources in Marib confirmed the toll.
