Yemeni army forces, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have gained control of a military base in Saudi Arabia’s Najran Province.

Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah news website reported that as part of the retaliatory campaign for relentless Saudi military attacks against the impoverished nation, Yemeni forces on Sunday managed to seize control of Nahuqeh military base.

The report said the Yemeni forces’ attack on the base started with rocket fire and continued with a ground offensive, forcing the Saudi troops to flee.

Yemeni forces destroyed one military vehicle and an observation tower in this attack. They also seized a huge cache of munitions in the operation.

Al-Masirah also reported a separate retaliatory rocket attack by Yemeni forces on Sunday in the city of Rabu’eh in Asir Province, destroying two Saudi military vehicles and an ammunition depot.
