Yemeni Forces Foil Saudi Arabia Offensive to Capture Key Area in Jawf
The pro-Saudi militias attempted to take control of al-Qayl region in al-Jawf province, but were pushed back by the Yemeni army and popular forces.
Scores of the militias were killed and wounded in the Yemeni army’s counteroffensive.
In a relevant development last Wednesday, scores of Saudi mercenaries in Yemen were killed in an Ansarullah Rocket attack on their position in the war-hit country’s Northern province of al-Jawf, local reports said.
The rocket hit a building of the Saudi mercenaries late Tuesday and killed 70 of them. At least 100 others were injured in the attack, Yemen’s al-Masirah TV reported.
Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on Yemen since late March 2015 in a bid to reinstate Hadi and undermine the Ansarullah movement, which took over state matters after Hadi resigned.
Over 9,400 Yemenis, including 4,000 women and children, have lost their lives in the Saudis’ deadly military campaign, FNA reported.
