Yemeni Forces Continue Capturing More Military Bases in Saudi Arabia
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Yemeni army and popular committees took control of several more military bases in the Saudi Province of Najran on Monday after they captured several strategic military centers in three Saudi provinces last night.
The Yemeni army and popular committees captured three Saudi military bases in al-Shurfa area in Najran.
Earlier reports said the Yemeni forces took control of a military camp in the Saudi border region of Najran, destroying six military vehicles.
Sources also said the Yemeni forces destroyed 2 Abrams tanks, 3 Bradley armored vehicles and 3 bulldozers in Najran province.
On Sunday, the Yemeni army and popular forces captured several other key military bases in three provinces in Southern Saudi Arabia near border with Yemen.
The Yemeni forces continued their advances in the province of Jizan, and took control of Malhama, al-Radif and al-Mamoud military bases, FNA dispatches and local residents said this afternoon.
The army and popular forces also captured al-Rabou’a military base in Asir province and Nahouqa military base in Najran province.
On Wednesday, the Yemeni forces pounded military bases in Jizan and Najran provinces with heavy artillery fire.
The artillery units of the Yemeni army and Ansarullah forces hit Al-Fariza military base in Jizan, and Alib and al-Ash military bases in Najran province.
The Yemeni missiles also hit the military hardware of Saudi forces in al-Rabou’a military zone.
Also, the Yemeni forces seized control of yet another strategic military base in Saudi Arabia’s Najran last Sunday, one day after they captured al-Shabaka military base in Al-Sharafa region in Najran province.
“The Yemeni forces seized three Abrams tanks from the Saudi army in Al-Shabaka military base,” a commander of the popular forces Hadi al-Rotabi said.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 250 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
