Yemeni army forces, backed by popular committees, have taken control of two villages on the Saudi soil as they continue their retaliatory attacks against Riyadh’s military.

Yemen’s al-Masirah TV said on Friday that the Yemeni forces managed to capture the villages of al-Vasetah and al-Khademah in the southern Saudi province of Jizan after targeting a number of military positions there.

The report said the Yemeni forces also gained control of three military positions near the al-Mahdaf district in the same province, while they destroyed an armored vehicle belonging to the Saudi forces in the area.

Meanwhile, a Saudi soldier was reportedly killed in an attack on al-Ma’naq military camp in Jahfan region.

Attacks were also reported on Saudi positions in neighboring Najran Province, where a number of Saudi troops were killed after rockets were launched on the gates of the provincial customs department.
