Entire mercenary brigade defects to National Salvation Government side

A senior commander loyal to the Saudi-led coalition forces has on Wednesday fled to the capital Sana’a.

Private sources told Yemen Press Agency  that the commander of the al-Ezz Brigade, Hamad Rashid Al-Hazmi, announced his defection, together with all his officers and recruits, and joined the side of the National Salvation Government.

The al-Ezz Brigade had previously been subjected to a coalition bombing in al-Yatmah desert, Jawf province, the last of which took place on March 15, which led to the death and injury of dozens of the brigade’s members.
