Senior Saudi Commander Killed in Yemen’s Ta’iz
Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters and army troops killed a ranking Saudi commander and dozens of his forces in the province of Ta’iz.
The Yemeni forces took control of a military base that had been occupied by Saudi forces in Ta’iz province a while ago, and killed a senior Saudi commander and his troops deployed in the base.
Saudi troops later launched a counter-offensive to take back the base, but they failed and escaped the region after losing a number of their vehicles.
Meanwhile, Ansarullah fighters also pounded a base in the Saudi border region of Jizan in a massive missile attack.
The Yemeni army also launched missile attacks on military bases in Zahran in the Asir border region of Saudi Arabia.
Yemeni Popular Committees fired a number of missiles at Saudi bases in the al-Khubah district in Jizan.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 224 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 6,919 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.
