Yemeni Houthi rebels recovered the bodies of 62 of their rebels in Yemen’s central province of Marib and transported them to a morgue in the capital, Sanaa.

Doctors at the Houthi-controlled military hospital told Xinhua news agency they had been killed in fighting with government troops near Al-Jouba district in the past two days.

The Houthi government-controlled Marib is trying to advance into al-Jouba, about 50 km southwest of the central city.

According to government military sources, fighting is still going on in the western districts of the province.

The Iran-backed Houthi militias launched a major offensive in February in an attempt to take control of the oil-rich province, the last northern stronghold of the Saudi-backed Yemeni government.
