Bahrain king's sonPrince Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the son of Bahrain's king, was injured in a missile attack by the Yemeni army and the Popular Committees on a military base of the Saudi-backed forces in Ma'rib, Yemen, sources in Manama confirmed on Wednesday.

On September 14, several sources revealed on their twitter accounts that Khalid had been either killed or injured in Ma'rib.

According to al-Safir newspaper, Khalid has not appeared in front of the public ever since then and was even absent in the funeral ceremony of Dubai ruler's son and the media have just been informed by his office that he is running affairs and fulfilling his daily duties.

But sources close to Khalid told the daily on Wednesday that he had been injured in Ma'rib, without disclosing further details.

The report came after informed sources announced on September 21 that son of the Prime Minister and Vice President of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, was also killed in the Yemeni revolutionary forces' attack in Ma'rib province, rejecting claims that Sheikh Rashid has died of heart attack.

"Sheikh Rashid and a number of other UAE forces were killed in a Yemeni forces' Katyusha attack in Ma'rib province and reports on his death as a result of a heart attack are only aimed at deceiving the Emirati people who are demanding withdrawal of the UAE troops from Yemen," the Yemeni Press quoted informed sources as saying.

The UAE news websites had claimed that Sheikh Rashid had died of a heart attack.

A Saudi-led coalition force has been striking Yemen for 190 days now to restore power to fugitive President Abed-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,433 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
