Yemeni Forces Take Control of Saudi Post, Village in Jizan
The Yemeni army and the Popular Committees gained control of a Saudi military post and a village in the border region of Jizan, reports said Tuesday.
The Yemeni forces took control of the Saudi military post of Ka’b al-Jaberi and the village of Mohannad in Jizan, leaving a group of Saudi soldiers dead and injured.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Saudi Interior Ministry said that a member of the ministry was killed by a mortar shell fired from Northern Yemen on the border between the two countries.
“Military shells fired from the Yemeni territory killed Ali Bin Fahad Abu Mahasen, a member of the mujahideen administration branch in Jizan region,” the spokesman said in a statement.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 188 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,469 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.
