17 September 2020 :

A Yemeni court in the central province of Marib on 6 September 2020 sentenced five Houthis to death for undermining security in government-controlled areas.
The military court from the Marib-based 3rd Military Region ruled that the  operatives — who were part of a Houthi cell uncovered last year — had plotted to assassinate military and security officers, planted improvised explosive devices (IEDs), blown up military equipment, and trained armed gangs in government-controlled areas, state news agency SABA reported.
State media identified only one of the five convicted operatives, Taher Ali Al-Marhabi. A sixth member of the cell was acquitted of the charges.
