Yemeni Forces Kill 38 Saudi-Backed Terrorists
Yemen’s army and popular forces killed 38 Saudi-backed militants and Al-Qaeda members in the province of Ta’iz.
The Yemeni forces foiled an attempt by the Saudi-backed militants to capture the presidential palace and the intelligence center of Ta’iz on Sunday night, killing 38 mercenaries and injuring several others.
On Sunday, Saudi Arabia’s navy vessels retreated from Yemen’s coastal waters after the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait, the third Saudi warship sinking in Yemen’s offshore waters in the last one month.
The Saudi warship was targeted with Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters of al-Mukha region in the province of Ta’iz.
The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets on residential areas in Ta’iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.
This is the third time that a Saudi warship is completely destroyed during the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
Other Saudi battleships retreated fast following the attack.
The coast of Al-Mukha is located in Bab al-Mandab strait and the Saudi-led forces have been trying hard for several months now to win control over coastal regions near the waterway.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 215 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 6,864 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.
