A high-ranking Yemeni intelligence official injured in a Houthi drone attack on the country's largest air base died of his wounds on Sunday (January 13th), medical sources said.
Brig. Gen. Saleh Tamah was wounded Thursday in a strike on a military parade in Al-Anad air base in Lahj province, north of Aden.
Medical sources told AFP that Tamah underwent several surgeries in a hospital in Aden but died Sunday morning.
At least seven pro-government fighters -- including Tamah -- were killed and 11 injured in Thursday's incident, which threatens to hamper UN-led peace efforts.
Among those injured were Yemen's deputy chief of staff Saleh al-Zandani, senior army commander Fadel Hasan and Lahj governor Ahmad Abdullah al-Turki.
Al-Turki and al-Zandani were transported to Saudi Arabia for treatment.
