At least 10 Saudi soldiers were killed in the Yemeni army and popular forces’ attacks in the Southern part of Saudi Arabia, local media said.

A sniper of Yemeni forces gunned down a Saudi soldier at the Faridah military base in the Southwestern province of Jizan in Saudi Arabia, al-Masirah tv reported.

This was followed by an assault in the al-Raboah region of Saudi Arabia’s Assir province which led to the death of nine Saudi soldiers.

A volley of rocket and artillery attacks by the Yemeni soldiers then smashed the Saudi military bases of Faridah, Hamraa and al-Ghawya in the same province.

In relevant developments earlier this week, the Yemeni army and popular forces continued their advances in Southern Saudi Arabia, inflicting losses on the military hardware of the kingdom’s government troops.

The Saudi military bases, positions, hardware were hit hard in the Yemeni forces’ attacks in Assir, Jizan and Najran provinces in retaliation for Saudi Arabia’s continued airstrikes on the Yemeni civilian population.

“The Yemeni army destroyed an armored vehicle of the Saudi army in Sahveh military base in Assir province,” the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen satellite TV quoted an unnamed military source as saying on Monday.

The source noted that seven military vehicles of the Saudi army came under Yemeni forces’ mortar attacks in Sharqan region.

The Yemeni army and popular forces also destroyed the gathering center of Saudi soldiers in al-Meysal region of Assir province.
