Yemen fighters kill two more Saudi officers in retaliatory attack


At least two Saudi officers and several soldiers have been killed when Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters, backed by tribesmen and allied army units, launched a series of new attacks on the Saudi border city of Najran in retaliation for Riyadh’s ongoing aggression against the impoverished Arab country.

Yemeni military sources said on Thursday that Ansarullah fighters and allied fighters shelled a Saudi military camp in the southwestern city of Najran.

At least two military sites in the border region came under fire while a number of military installations and several military vehicles were destroyed in the shelling.

The latest attack came hours after Saudi Interior Ministry confirmed that two Saudi border guards were killed in a rocket attack on a border area in Asir region. The deadly attack also left five Saudi border guards wounded.

In recent weeks, several rocket attacks by Yemeni forces targeted military positions in the Saudi border cities of Najran and Dhahran al-Janub.
