Yemeni Troops Kill over 10 Saudi Soldiers in Jizan


The Yemeni army and popular forces pounded a military bases in Southern Saudi Arabia, killing nearly a dozen of the monarchy’s soldiers.

At least 10 Saudi soldiers were killed in the Yemeni forces’ missile attack on al-Mamoud military base in Jizan province in retaliation for Saudi Arabia’s airstrikes on Yemeni civilians, mostly women and children.

The Yemeni forces also destroyed a Hummer military vehicle and a tank of the Saudi army.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 156 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 5,529 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.
