9 February 2016 7:52


Yemen’s Army and popular forces, in fierce clashes in Taiz province on Monday, managed to inflict heavy casualties on foreign-backed militants, including several Saudi-hired Black Water mercenaries.

According to sources on the ground, several black water contractors including Colombian, Australian, and Venezuelan nationals, were among the casualties of the clashes that broke out in rugged al-umri region in Yemen’s strategic province of Taiz.

No further details on the development and the number of casualties are available.

Saudi Arabia began its deadly campaign against Yemen in late March 2015. The strikes have been meant to undermine local resistance forces and restore power to fugitive Saudi-backed former President, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

In another significant development on late Sunday, Yemen’s army carried out two ballistic missile attacks against a military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Asir region.

The missiles hit the King Khalid air base in the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait in Asir region. Over 100 Saudi soldiers were reported dead while dozens more were sent to different hospitals with injuries.
