Several Hilltops Seized by Yemeni Forces in Southern Saudi Arabia

13940429000199_PhotoIKABUL: (Middle East Press) The Yemeni forces have reportedly taken full control of several hilltops in the province of Jizan, the country’s media reported on Monday.

The incident took place after the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi military vehicle convoy in the province of Jizan with missiles on Sunday.

The Saudi military convoy comprising tanks and armored personnel carriers came under the Yemeni forces’ attack in Jizan.

Several Saudi military men were killed in the Yemeni raid on their convoy.

On Saturday, the Yemeni forces destroyed Saudi Arabia’s al-Mamout military base in the Southern parts of the country.

Saudi Arabia began military strikes against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to the country’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Over 4,300 people have lost their lives in the Yemeni conflict, the World Health Organization said on August 11. Local Yemeni sources, however, say the fatality figure is much higher.
