At least two Saudi soldiers have been killed after their positions were shelled by Yemeni forces in southern Saudi Arabia.
The deaths came on Thursday, when Yemeni forces targeted a Saudi military base in Dhahran al-Janoub of Asir Province.
Yemeni fighters fired several mortar rounds as well as 26 rockets on three Saudi military bases in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern city of Jizan.
Yemeni army units allied with Ansarullah fighters have also stormed the Saudi military base, Jabal al-Dood, near the border between the two countries in a retaliatory attack, forcing Saudi soldiers there to flee the area.
Reports also said that three Yemeni women were killed after Saudi warplanes targeted areas in Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada.
Meanwhile, Saudi warplanes also reportedly hit a water reservoir and a school in Ra’s Isa and Miftah mountains in Sa’ada, leaving an unknown number of casualties.
They also pounded the Tawahi and Khur Maksar districts in Yemen’s Aden and carried out an attack on a residential area in the Baqim district of Sa’ada
Saudi Arabia began airstrikes against the impoverish Yemen on March 26- without a UN mandate- in an attempt to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and bring fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi back to power. According to the UN, some 2,000 have lost their lives due to the conflict in the war-torn country since March 19.
