Yemeni Forces Seize Control over Hilltops in Southern Saudi Arabia
The Yemeni forces announced on Monday that they have taken full control of several hilltops in Jizan, Fars News Agency reported.
On Sunday, the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi military vehicle convoy in the province of Jizan with missiles.
The Saudi military convoy comprising tanks and armored personnel carriers came under the Yemeni forces’ attack in Jizan.
Several Saudi military men were killed in the Yemeni raid on their convoy.
On Saturday, the Yemeni forces destroyed Saudi Arabia’s al-Mamout military base in the Southern parts of the country.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 152 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 5,518 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.
