Alwaght- The head of Yemen's Supreme Political Council Saleh al-Sammad has been killed in Saudi-led air strikes on Hodeidah province, the Ansarullah movement has announced.

Yemen's Al-Masirah TV network reported on Monday that Saleh al-Sammad, was killed on Thursday adding that Mahdi al-Mashat has been elected as Sammad's successor.

The Yemeni Supreme Political Council is an executive body formed by Ansarullah Movement and the General People's Congress (GPC) to govern Yemen. Formed on 28 July 2016, the presidential council consists of 10 members and was headed by martyr Saleh Ali al-Sammad.

According to Saudi regime's al-Arabiya TV, the Saudi-led military coalition, had offered a 20-million-dollar prize for any information that could help uncover the location of Samad’s location.

The Saudi aggression against Yemen was launched in March 2015 in support of Yemen’s former Riyadh-friendly government and against the country’s Ansarullah movement, which has been running state affairs in the absence of an effective administration.

The offensive has, however, achieved neither of its goals despite the spending of billions of petrodollars and the enlisting of Saudi Arabia's regional and Western allies.

The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the Saudi-led war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured during the past three years.

The United Nations says a record 22.2 million people are in need of food aid, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger. A high-ranking UN aid official recently warned against the “catastrophic” living conditions in Yemen, stating that there was a growing risk of famine and cholera there.
