Yemeni Army, Ansarullah Destroy 2 Saudi Military Bases in Jizan
The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters hit two military bases in Jizan, Southern Saudi Arabia, in retaliation for the Riyadh government’s continued airstrikes on Yemen.
“The Yemeni army and popular committees destroyed al-Mamout and al-Radif military bases in Jizan of Saudi Arabia,” the Yemeni defense ministry announced in a statement on Tuesday.
Meantime, editor of the Yemeni weekly al-Massar wrote on his Facebook page that the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters have destroyed over 200 vehicles of the Saudi army since the start of the Saudi aggression against Yemen on March 26.
On Sunday, the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters seized back control over nearly a dozen military bases in the Southern parts of Yemen after heavy clashes with Al-Qaeda militants and forces loyal to fugitive president Mansour Hadi.
The Yemeni forces won back 10 military bases from militants’ control in the town of Mudiyah in Abyan province, Southern Yemen, today.
Tens of pro-Hadi and al-Qaeda militants were killed in heavy clashes with the Yemeni forces.
In a similar development on Saturday, the Yemeni forces seized back 10 other military bases in Lawdar in Abyan province.
Meantime, sources announced that the Yemeni army and the popular committees held over 80 Al-Qaeda terrorists captive in Aden province.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 125 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 5,313 civilians, mostly women and children.
