Yemeni Army Kills over 25 Pro-Saudi Mercenaries, Commanders in Ta’iz Province
The Yemeni army continued its advances in several regions in Ta’iz province, killing several militias loyal to Saudi Arabia, including senior commanders. At least 25 Saudi mercenaries and their commanders were killed in fierce clashes with the Syrian army in the city of Ta’iz. An armored vehicle of the pro-Saudi forces was also destroyed during the army offensive.
Meantime, the Yemeni army and popular forces engaged in clashes with another group of pro-Saudi forces who were trying to advance towards the Midi desert in Yemen, inflicting heavy losses on them.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Yemeni army popular forces took control of two military bases in Saudi Arabia’s Southwestern border region of Najran in retaliation for Riyadh’s military campaign against their country. The Yemeni forces took control of the bases in the mountainous Northern part of the region, located 844 kilometers South of the capital, Riyadh, Al Masirah reported. Shortly afterwards, Yemeni soldiers and Popular Committees fighters fired a number of Katyusha rockets at a gathering of Saudi forces at Najran Regional Airport. There was no immediate report on the extent of damage inflicted and the number of casualties among Saudi forces. Abu Hamdan and al-Sadis military bases in the same Saudi region also came under missile attacks by Yemeni forces. The developments came on the same day that Yemeni artillery units pounded a position of Saudi-backed militiamen loyal to resigned president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the Khabb wa ash Sha’af district of the country’s Northern province of al-Jawf.
Meanwhile, Saudi fighter jets struck an area in the Kitaf wa Al Boqe’e district of Yemen’s Northwestern province of Sa’ada, but no casualties were reported. Saudi warplanes also carried out two separate airstrikes against Baqim district in Sa’ada Province, though no immediate reports of casualties were available.
Earlier, Saudi military aircraft bombarded a power station in the As Salif district of Yemen’s western coastal province of Hodeida. Saudi Arabia has been engaged in a deadly campaign against Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to bring back the former Yemeni government to power and undermine the Ansarullah movement. The impoverished Arab country is grappling with the scarcity of food supplies and outbreak of diseases amid Saudi Arabia’s atrocious airstrikes. The United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) says 7.4 million Yemeni children are in dire need of medical help, and 370,000 run the risk of severe acute malnutrition.
