Saudi soldier killed on Yemen border: Interior Ministry
A Saudi trooper has been killed in a retaliatory shelling attack by Yemeni forces against a border guard station in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern province of Dhahran al-Janub, as Riyadh presses ahead with its airborne aggression campaign against the impoverished neighbor.
According to a brief statement by the Saudi interior ministry, the border guard was killed on Sunday morning after “heavy firing from inside Yemeni territory” targeted the station, the official Saudi Press Agency reported.
The ministry identified the guard as Corporal Mushabab Saeid Mushabab al-Ahmari, but did not provide any further details on the inflicted damage or possible casualties.
Earlier in the day, Saudi warplanes struck a residential neighborhood in the al- Wazi’iyah district of the Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz, situated 346 kilometers (214 miles) south of the capital, Sana’a, leaving 12 civilians dead and 13 others injured.
Saudi military warplanes also bombarded other districts in the same province as well as the capital.
