Yemeni forces have reportedly captured at least 150 Saudi mercenaries in the war-hit country’s central province of al-Bayda.

According to a report by Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah news website, the Yemeni army, backed by Popular Committees loyal to the Houthi Ansarullah movement, caught Saudi mercenaries in Rada’ town on Tuesday as they were heading toward a Saudi military base in west-central Ma’rib Province.

On Wednesday, Yemeni forces pounded a military base in Ma’rib with a ballistic missile, killing and injuring a number of Saudi mercenaries.

The report also said that at least three civilians were killed after Saudi warplanes targeted a vehicle in Humaydat district in Jawf on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, according to al-Masirah, several Saudi forces were killed after Yemeni Qaher ballistic missiles hit a Saudi military base in the northern province of Jawf on Tuesday.

Yemenis carry out such attacks in retaliation for Saudi strikes, which were launched in late March last year in a bid to bring the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a Riyadh ally, back to power and undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement.
