Scores of Saudi Soldiers Killed in Yemeni Forces’ Attacks in Najran, Jizan
“Several Saudi military men were killed in the Yemeni army and popular forces’ operations in the city of Najran,” the sources close to Yemen’s popular forces said.
Meantime, reports from Jizan said that several Saudi soldiers and officers were also killed in heavy clashes in there.
Earlier today, a military source said that at least 55 troops of the Saudi-led coalition were killed or wounded in the Yemeni army’s operations in the province of Ma’rib.
The military source said that, in addition to the killing and wounding of nearly 55 soldiers of the Saudi army and it allies by the Yemeni army, over eight military and 5 armored vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition were destroyed in the vicinity Al-Balaq, Thaat Al-Ra’ and Marbat Al-Dam in Ma’rib during the past few hours.
On Monday, Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters conducted retaliatory attacks on Saudi positions in the region of Jizan.
The Yemeni forces fired a barrage of rockets at a military base in the Saudi region of Jizan.
Three Saudi armored vehicles were also destroyed in another attack in Jizan.
Meanwhile, reports said that the Yemenis had killed and injured dozens of pro-Saudi militants, and destroyed ten vehicles belonging to them in the province of Ma’rib.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 191 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,433 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.
