Yemeni Army Takes Control of Saudi Border City



The Yemeni army and popular forces gained control of the border city of al-Rabouah in Saudi Arabia’s Southern province of al-Asir.

Al-Masirah news channel released footages of the Yemeni forces’ full control over al-Rabouah city in Saudi Arabia.

The TV footages showed that the Yemeni army easily surrounded a military base in the city without any Saudi resistance, set fire to 17 military vehicles and destroyed its watchtower and weapons cache.

A Yemeni military source said that tens of Saudi soldiers were also killed in the attack and others fled the scene.

Also, the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television reported that the Yemeni army and popular forces fired 15 missiles and rockets at a Saudi military base in Asir on Monday and before taking the city of al-Rabouah.

It added that the missiles hit al-Hajer military base in Asir.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 173 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,847 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
