Army Spokesman: Yemeni Forces Continuing Operations Deep into Saudi Arabia
“The Yemeni forces have managed to inflict heavy losses on the Saudi enemy inside Saudi Arabia,” Luqman said.
He reiterated that the Yemeni army and the popular forces are having high morale to fight the enemy, and said, “The military operation to capture new military bases of Saudi Arabia is underway.”
Luqman said that the Saudi enemy has resorted to airstrikes which will surely fail.
On Monday, the Yemeni army and popular committees took control of several more military bases in the Saudi Province of Najran after they captured several strategic military centers in three Saudi provinces on Sunday night.
The Yemeni army and popular committees captured three Saudi military bases in al-Shurfa area in Najran.
Earlier reports said the Yemeni forces took control of a military camp in the Saudi border region of Najran, destroying six military vehicles.
Sources also said the Yemeni forces destroyed 2 Abrams tanks, 3 Bradley armored vehicles and 3 bulldozers in Najran province.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 252 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 7,103 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.
