In Video: Yemeni fighters ambush Saudi forces in Jizan
Yemeni fighters known as Houthi rebels destroyed Saudi military vehicles in an ambush they carried out in the southwestern Saudi city of Jizan.
The rebels’ media wing released videos showing Saudi military vehicles destroyed by roadside IEDs while patrolling the mountainous area.
Rebel sources said that scores have been killed and injured in the attacks.
Days ago, Houthi rebels hit – for the first time – King Fahd Airbase in the Saudi city of Al-Ta’if with a ballistic missile.
The attack – the deepest into the Saudi Kingdom – is seen as a retaliation for the Saudi airstrikes that killed and wounded more 650 people on a funeral held in the Yemeni capital.
