VIDEO: Hezbollahi Yemenis enter Saudi Arabia to conduct counter-strike
A newly-released video shows a group of Yemeni army soldiers and Houthi Ansarullah fighters crossing into Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Asir region to conduct counter-strike.
Yemen’s al-Masirah television network published footage on Friday showing the crossing operation that came following clashes between Yemeni fighters and Saudi military forces.
Al-Masirah further released another video showing the Yemeni army targeting a military base run by Saudi-allied troops from Sudan in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Jizan region.
The Houthis said the artillery and missile attacks destroyed two armored vehicles occupied by Sudanese mercenaries.
Saudi Arabia has been leading a number of its vassal states in a war on Yemen since March 2015.
The Saudi-led war was launched in an attempt to reinstall a former Yemeni government. That objective has failed to materialize.
The Houthi Ansarullah movement has meanwhile been running state affairs.
The Saudi-led campaign, which is accompanied by a land, aerial and naval blockade of Yemen, has so far killed more than 13,600 people and led to a humanitarian crisis.
