The slain General was the grandson of King bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

The Saudi Defense Ministry on Sunday confirmed the clashes in Majda region. Saudi-backed Al-Qaeda militants and forces loyal to the fugitive Yemeni president Mansour Hadi are fighting the revolutionary and army forces across Yemen.

Saudi Arabia has formed a coalition of 10 Arab states to backup the militancy against the Ansarullah revolutionary forces and the army by massive air campaign on military and residential areas across Yemen.

The Saudi-led air campaign which is in its third week now has so far claimed the lives of 2,500 Yemenis, specially civilians.

Pakistan which was due to be the backbone of the Saudi-led coalition ground forces declared that it would not join Riyadh, but the aggressive forces enjoy the logistical and intelligence backup of the US and Israel.

Israel also has sent several pilots and fighter jets to the coalition air force.
