Yemeni Drones Target Saudi Mercenaries in Asir, Scores Killed

Yemeni forces launched a series of drone strikes against Saudi-sponsored militiamen in the border region of Asir, inflicting major losses on them.

The strikes hit the gatherings of the militants, leaving dozens of them dead and injured, a military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Saba news agency on Sunday.

Separately, the Yemeni forces launched attacks against Saudi-backed forces in al-Rabou’a area of the Asir region.

Dozens of the militants were killed in the attacks.

The attacks against the Saudi-led forces come in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians and destruction of Yemen’s infrastructure by the coalition led by Riyadh.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for nearly four years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
