Yemeni army and popular committees have intensified their retaliatory attacks against Saudi military positions, leaving 10 soldiers dead.
According to Yemen’s al-Masirah TV, a sniper of the Yemeni army killed a Saudi soldier in the Faridah military base in the kingdom’s southwestern province of Jizan on Wednesday.
The Yemeni forces also killed nine other Saudi troops in the al-Raboah region of Saudi Arabia’s Asir province, and launched rocket and artillery attacks at the military bases of Faridah, Hamraa and al-Ghawya in the same province.
Meanwhile, a barrage of Katyusha missiles fired by the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters hit the Tansab military base in the Saudi province of Najran.
The Yemeni forces also inflicted heavy losses on the Saudi-backed mercenaries fighting in the Arabian Peninsula country.
Yemen’s army also fired a home-made ballistic missile at the mercenaries’ positions in a valley in Khabb & Sha'af district of Jawf province, leaving an unspecified number of them dead and wounded. Three rockets also hit militant positions in Mafraq al-Jawf district in the same province.
In Bayda province, several Saudi-backed militants were also killed and injured as the Yemeni troops fired artillery shells at their positions in Zi Naem district. The militants' military vehicle was also destroyed in the attack.
The Yemeni army also launched rocket and artillery attacks at the mercenaries’ positions in Salb Mountain of Nihm district, northeast of Sana’a province.
The attacks come in retaliation for the brutal Saudi military campaign against its impoverished neighbor, Yemen, which was launched in March 2015 to reinstall the former Yemeni government.
