Four Saudi soldiers killed in Yemeni sniper fire in Jizan, Asir

Yemeni army snipers have targeted military bases in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern regions, killing at least four Saudi troops.

The Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported on Sunday that the Yemeni sniper fire claimed the lives of three Saudi soldiers in the Asir region and one more at the al-Farizeh military base in Jizan region.

The al-Zaqilah base, also situated in Jizan, came under similar attacks that destroyed two armored vehicles and left an unspecified number of casualties.

Yemeni missile attacks further hit other Saudi bases in Jizan, resulting in the burning of a vehicle at the al-Mostahdes military base.

Additionally on Sunday, the Yemeni army’s artillery unit targeted a place, where Saudi mercenaries had gathered in Khabb & Sha’af district of the northern Jawf Province.

Positions held by forces loyal to former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, were also struck in Jawf’s Ghayl neighborhood, leaving a number of them dead and injured.

Meanwhile, Saudi jets bombed several districts, including Sirwah, in central Ma’rib Province. A bomb planted by Saudi mercenaries wounded two children in Sahar District of Sa’ada Province.

Saudi Arabia has been leading a brutal military campaign against Yemen for more than two years to eliminate the Ansarullah movement and reinstall Riyadh-backed Hadi.
