Houthi forces ambush Saudi Arabian Army deep inside Saudi border

AlMasdarNews reports: Footage has emerged of Houthi tribesmen firing anti-tank missiles upon Saudi Arabian checkpoints near Najran, a city just ten kilometers from the border with Yemen.

Two Humvees and a tank are hit and presumably destroyed.

In the video below, Houthi fighters, whom are supported by Iran, follow up the succesful ambush by yelling “death to America – death to Israel”:

Saudi Arabia has played an important role in propping up President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who leads a Yemeni government based in Aden. Meanwhile, Houthis also lay claim to state power after they seized control of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, in 2015.

    The saudis are pretty clueless.

    Saudis are laughable, just arm Houthis with 10% of what Saudis have, and they’ll take Riyadh in two weeks. Or less :D

      Lol that’s funny

      Someone with good knowledge of wars and fighters should rank the fighting ability of each country/group/tribe per capita. Houthis would no doubt be quite high while the Saudis would have to be ranked low.

        a kornet missile can go up to 10 km and that is what the houthis are using

    Have to admire the fighting prowess of the Houthis/Yemenis. It is like they are some of the best fighters while the Saudis are probably near the bottom.
