Yemeni Army, Popular Committees Control Saudi Post, Town in Jizan
The Yemeni army and the Popular Committees announced on Tuesday their control over the Saudi military post of Ka’b al-Jaberi and the town of Mohannad in the border area of Jizan, leaving several Saudi soldiers killed and wounded.
In a similar development, a spokesman for the Saudi Interior Ministry announced that a member of the Ministry was killed by a mortar shell fired from northern Yemen on the border between the two countries.
The spokesman said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency that
“Military shells fired from the Yemeni territory killed Ali Bin Fahad Abu Mahasen, a member of the mujahideen administration branch in Jizan region.”
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 188 days now to restore power to fugitive president Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,230 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
