Houthi fighters raided on August 21 several positions of the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies near the strategic Qays mount in the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan.
The Yemeni group’s media wing released a video showing the bodies of twelve Saudi-backed fighters, who were killed by the Houthis in the course of the attack.
The Houthis maintain a strong military presence in southern Jizan, especially east of the Qays mount. The Yemeni group’s fighters launch raids from their positions there on a regular basis.
Since the beginning of this year, the Houthis have stepped up their military activities in southern Saudi Arabia. Dozens of Saudi-backed fighters and Saudi soldiers were reportedly killed in the Yemeni group’s raids in the region.
