Tens of Sudanese Mercenaries Killed, Wounded in Yemen
The sources said that a large number of the Sudanese soldiers and officers tried to cross the Saudi border and enter Yemen’s territories in Meidi region in Western Yemen in May but the Yemeni soldiers and Ansarullah fighters engaged in a tough battle with them and thwarted their attack.
“136 Sudanese officers and soldiers were killed and 244 others were injured in Meidi desert, in the meantime, tens of military vehicles and a large volume of equipment were destroyed in the failed attempt,” the sources went on to say.
Relevant reports said on Sunday that the Yemeni fighters from the Ansarullah movement reportedly engaged Saudi military forces near the kingdom’s Southwestern border regions, and killed a captain in the clashes.
The state-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported that Captain Mohammed bin Eid bin Abdullah al-Subaie from ground forces was killed several days ago, when Ansarullah fighters launched an attack against a border outpost in Southern Saudi Arabia.
The report added that Prince Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Abdulaziz , the deputy governor of Riyadh, and a number of senior military figures and members of the royal family prayed for the slain Saudi officer at al-Rajhi Grand Mosque in Riyadh on Friday.
