Yemeni forces kill dozens of Saudi soldiers

Dozens of Saudi soldiers have died after Yemeni army troopers, backed by fighters from popular committees, launched an attack against a military camp in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern region of Najran.

The Saudi soldiers lost their lives when Yemeni forces fired a barrage of mortar shells at Quwwah base, which lies near the border with impoverished and crisis-hit Yemen, on Monday evening, Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.

Separately, Yemeni forces and allied fighters launched a number of BM-21 Grad rockets at al-Mo’tan military base in the southwestern Saudi region of Jizan, sending flames and columns of smoke high into the sky. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
