Victorious Yemeni Army Targets Saudi Border Guards Center in Dhahran
The Yemeni Army raided the Saudis’ Border Guards center in Dhahran al-Janub in the Southern parts of Saudi Arabia, killing or wounding several guards, sources said.
The Saudi media revealed that at least one guard was killed and another two were injured as a result of the Yemeni army’s attack on Dhahran.
On Thursday, Yemeni tribal forces fired rockets at border military bases in Southern Saudi Arabia, and killed at least 18 Saudi soldiers in retaliation for the ongoing Saudi airstrikes on residential areas across Yemen.
The Saudi military grid and equipment was also destroyed in the late Wednesday attack, according to the Yemeni TV channel, al-Masirah.
Several rockets targeted military positions in the border cities of Najran and Dhahran al-Janub, it said.
The latest rocket attack came hours after a Saudi soldier, identified as Hassan Someili, was killed during cross-border clashes with Yemeni tribal forces in the Saudi border region of Jazan.
Dozens of Saudi troops have been killed or injured in Yemeni forces’ retaliatory attacks.
Cross-border skirmishes between the Saudi troops and Yemeni tribes have flared up over the last six weeks, as the monarchy’s airstrikes continue and have so far claimed the lives of thousands of innocent people, particularly at border areas.
Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen in the last 58 days to bring its ally, fugitive president Mansour Hadi, back to power. The airstrikes have killed, at least, 3,857 Yemenis, according to FNA’s independent tally. According to a recent report by Freedom House Foundation, most of the victims of the deadly Al Saud campaign are civilians, including a large number of women and children. Thousands of residential buildings have been destroyed, and hundreds of civil and public facilities were reduced to rubble as a result of the bombardments by Saudi warplanes on the Yemeni cities and towns, the group said.
