Yemeni security forces seized five truckloads of weapons that were set to be delivered to Houthi rebels in Al Mahrah governorate yesterday evening, local reports revealed.
This comes after an Omani truck was found in Marib on its way to the capital city Sana’a to deliver weapons to the Houthi rebels on Thursday night.
Al Mahrah governorate is directly on the Yemeni-Omani border.
The Omani embassy in London has not replied to MEMO’s request for a comment.
Yemen has been locked in a bitter battle between Shia Houthi fighters allied with forces loyal to ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh and government forces led by President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, along with local tribes and resistance forces who are being backed by a Saudi-led coalition.
