Tens of Bahraini, Saudi Troops Killed in Clashes with Yemeni Forces
Abu Maryam, a senior Ansarullah commander, announced that a large number of Bahraini and Saudi military troops deployed at Southern Saudi Arabia have been killed in fierce clashes with the Yemeni forces.
“Over 20 Bahraini troops were killed in clashes between the Yemeni and Saudi forces in Jizan province,” Abu Maryam said.
He noted that the Yemeni troops also launched military operations in al-Khoba region of Jizan province and Saudi Arabia’s al-Hasira military base, and said that tens of Saudi troops were killed in one-on-one clashes.
Abu Maryam said tens of Saudi troops were killed and two Saudi army tanks were also destroyed in Najran.
Earlier today, the Yemeni army and popular forces launched missile attacks on the Saudi army’s positions in Jizan, killing over half a dozen soldiers.
“Over seven Saudi soldiers were killed in Yemeni forces’ missile attacks on al-Khoba military zone in Jizan province,” Yemeni security forces said.
The Yemeni forces fired 28 missiles at the Saudi positions in al-Ramza region of Jizan.
The Yemeni missile attacks came in response to the continued Saudi aggressions against the people of Yemen.
Two military vehicles and a tank were destroyed during the attack.
The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 144 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,419 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
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.
