An Emirati soldier was killed while on duty with a Saudi-led coalition battling Huthi rebels in Yemen, the United Arab Emirates' official WAM news agency reported on Friday.
The announcement comes after a coalition raid on a rebel post in Khokha, south of the main Red Sea port of Hodeida, killed 15 rebels and wounded 20 on Wednesday, according to military sources allied with the coalition.
A second Emirati soldier died of a heart attack, WAM said.
Some 80 Emirati soldiers have been killed since the coalition launched its intervention in support of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi in March 2015.
More than 7,400 people have been killed since the intervention began, including around 1,400 children, according to World Health Organization figures.
Despite the coalition's superior firepower, the rebels and their allies still control the capital Sanaa and much of the northern and central highlands as well as the port of Hodeida.
