On August 11, Yemen’s Houthis conducted a hit and run attack on two posts of the Saudi military in the border areas of al-Mustahdas and al-Hajlah in the southern Saudi province of Najran, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV.
During the attack, Houthi fighters killed and injured several Saudi soldiers and officers. Furthermore, a M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) and two pickup trucks of the Saudi military were destroyed with IEDs and rocket-propelled grenades.
During the last two months, the number of the Houthis’ cross border attacks decreased dramatically. Observers believe that the Yemeni group redeployed many of its units from the Yemeni-Saudi border to the western coast of the country in order to fend off the ongoing attack of the Saudi-led coalition on the port city of al-Hudaydah.
This new attack indicates that the Houthis have overcome the pressure of the Saudi-led coalition and now they can once again operate on more than one front simultaneously.
