The Houthi-Saleh Alliance’s missile units have launched an attack on the Saudi-led coalition’s forces, deployed in the southeastern province of Taiz, killing at least 150 Saudi soldiers and destroying ten their military vehicles.
The Saudi-led coalition’s forces, deployed in Sha’ab al-Jin near Bab al-Mandeb region in the southeastern province of Taiz, were targeted by the Houthi-Saleh alliance’s missile units, the Fars news agency reported on Thursday, citing unnamed sources. As a result, at least 150 Saudi fighters were killed, while ten their military vehicles were destroyed.
According to the sources, fighters, who were recently transported by a Turkish plane to the port city of Aden, located 170 km from the Bab al-Mandeb strait, also were among killed Saudi soldiers. The Saudi contingent arrived to the strategic region just two days ago, apparently, in order to conduct a major assault on the Houthi-Saleh Alliance’s forces.
On Saturday, Yemeni security sources said that al-Qaeda terrorists were transported from the Syrian northern city of Aleppo to Aden by the Turkish plane, which also evacuated wounded pro-Saudi fighters to medical treatment centers, located outside the country.
“The Turkish airplane landed at the Aden International Airport to transport pro-Saudi mercenaries, wounded in the Yemeni forces’ offensives in Taiz province, for treatment in Turkish hospitals,” the al-Ahd news website quoted the unnamed sources.
The sources also noted that about 150 al-Qaeda terrorists got off the plane after its landing, adding that they were transported to Aden from Syrian Aleppo.
