Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam in a Facebook post on Friday said the Bangladeshis identified as ‘Nuru’ from Tangail and ‘Baten’ from Brahmanbaria were working at the Samtah General Hospital in Jizan Region.
They were working as cleaners.
He said they died on the spot in the early Friday morning attacks.
The injured were admitted at the hospital, Alam said, adding that he would post updates on further developments.
Yemen became volatile after the Houthi rebels took control of its capital and forced its president to leave the country.
Saudi Arabia is leading the military campaign against the Houthi rebels who were also retaliating by killing the soldiers of the allied forces.
Bangladesh that condemned the Houthis attacks from the beginning earlier evacuated all of its nationals.
