Yemeni Army, Popular Committees Repel Saudi-led Mercenaries’ Attack on Haradh
|The Yemeni army and popular committees managed on Thursday to repel an attack launched by the Saudi-led mercenaries on Haradh city in Hijja province near border with KSA.
The Saudi warplanes fruitlessly attempted to save the attackers by a large number of raids, as the Yemeni army and popular committees killed or injured scores of militants and gunmen.
The Saudi-led escalation in the battlefield comes in the context of an attempt to thwart Kuwait negotiations which aim at reaching a peaceful solution for the Yemeni crisis.
The Yemeni army and popular committees also launched a ballistic missile on the Saudi National Guard post in Najran.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
