The Yemeni army and popular forces continued their advances against the Saudi-backed militants in Ta’iz province, inflicting major losses on them.

“Over 50 Saudi-hired mercenaries, including some from Sudan, were killed in clashes with the Yemeni forces in the coastal city of al-Mukha in Ta’iz province,” a Yemeni security source said.

“Most of the Riyadh-backed militias were from Abyan and Dhale provinces,” the source added.

He went on to say that two military planes carrying a large number of Sudanese mercenaries had landed in Aden airport on Friday night.

“Most of the Sudanese mercenaries have been killed in clashes with the Yemeni forces in Dhubab and al-Mukha warfronts over the past two days,” the security source added.

In a relevant development on Saturday, the Yemeni army and popular forces foiled an attempt by the Saudi army troops to penetrate into several regions in Ta’iz province.

The Saudi troops were trying to pave their way into al-Jadid, Al-Kadaheh and al-al-Khazra regions in Ta’iz, but they were pushed back from their positions before they could take any meaningful action.

Several Saudi troops were killed and many more were wounded in their failed attempt to capture the new regions in Ta’iz province.
