Yemeni Forces Seize More Saudi Territories, Kill Soldiers
TEHRAN (FNA)– The Yemeni army and the Popular Committees gained control of several areas in the city of Al-Khubah in the Saudi province of Jizan.
The Yemeni forces seized several areas in Al-Khubah city, including Qamar, Al-Dhahira and West of Dar Al-Nasr towns, killing and injuring scores of Saudi troops on Sunday. Nine Saudi vehicles were also destroyed.
Also on Sunday, Yemeni forces killed at least three Saudi soldiers with sniper fire and destroyed a Saudi tank along with two military vehicles in Jizan.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry has confirmed the deaths of two government troops in a Yemeni cross border attack on the Southwestern Najran region.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 180 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,106 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.
