The Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and pounded the Saudi military bases in Assir and Najran provinces with missiles, killing and injuring several Saudi army troops. The Yemeni forces pounded al-Hejleh, al-Dis and al-Makhrouq military bases in Najran in Southern Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia’s al-Massial military base in Assir province also came under the Yemeni forces’ attack. Several Saudi forces were killed and many more were injured in the attack on their military bases and positions in Najran and Assir provinces.

Earlier on Sunday, the Yemeni army’s missile unit hit several vessels of the Saudi-led Arab coalition with Katyusha rockets in the Southwestern waters of Ta’iz province. “Five Saudi-led coalition vessels came under Yemeni rocket attacks in the coastal waters of the city of Zobab in Southwestern Ta’iz on Sunday morning,” al-Masirah news channel quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

Meantime, the Yemeni forces targeted an armored military vehicle of the Saudi mercenaries in al-Mahzar region in Ta’iz province. Military commanders announced on Saturday, the Yemeni army and popular forces have continued their advances in Ta’iz in the last four days, and inflicted 150 casualties on Saudi-backed militias in different parts of the province. “The Yemeni forces attacked the gathering centers of the pro-Saudi militias in the Southern part of the city of Zobab in Ta’iz province and killed tens of terrorists,” Senior Ansarullah Commander Ali al-Houthi said. “The pro-Saudi mercenaries targeted and destroyed people’s houses in Ta’iz province after they sustained major defeats in tough battles with the Yemeni forces in al-Shabakeh and Qashabeh regions as well as al-Hamra village on the outskirts of the city of al-Waziyeh,” al-Houthi added.

Meantime, battlefield sources said nearly 150 pro-Hadi militias and Saudi mercenaries have been killed in fierce clashes with the Yemeni forces in Ta’iz province. Also, the Arabic-language media quoted an unnamed Yemeni security commander as saying that over 60 Saudi mercenaries have been killed in clashes in Jahmalieh region of Ta’iz. Meantime, a source, close to Qatiyat Battalions terrorist group which is under the command of Adnan Zariq in Ta’iz, said that at least 80 of their militants, including several senior commanders have been killed in clashes over past three days. The source admitted that the Yemeni forces repelled the terrorist groups’ attacks on strategic heights of al-Salsal and Ja’sheh in Saleh and blocked their penetration into al-Houban region. Also, a Yemeni military source said the Eastern side of Ta’iz city frequently comes under attack by the Saudi-backed troops as it is the gate to al-Houban region in Northern Ta’iz where the Yemen army and popular forces have gathered. “The Yemeni forces clashed with Saudi mercenaries in Saleh valley, and killed several of them despite the Saudi fighter jets air support for the militias,” the source said. Meantime, the Yemeni forces took control of the town of Saleh to the East of Ta’iz city and fortified their military positions around the town.

In late August, the Yemeni army and popular forces started military operations to win back Ta’iz province. On Tuesday, 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. Intense Combat in the Battle of Taiz
