At least 20 Saudi fighters were killed, while their military hardware was destroyed by the Houthi-Saleh alliance in Marib province.
The Houthi-Saleh alliance has continued its advances against pro-Saudi militants, loyal to the former President Mansour Hadi, in Marib province, killing at least 20 Saudi fighters and destroying their military hardware, the al-Masirah TV-channel reported on Tuesday, citing local sources.
Earlier on Tuesday, two ballistic missiles were fired by the alliance on several targets in Najran province, located in the southwestern part of the kingdom. A Saudi military command center, where a large number of Saudi troops were stationed, was hit with the Tochka missile, while the Zalzal 3 missile was fired on the Rajla military base. However, the Saudi side claimed that the latter missile was intercepted and destroyed before it could make any damage.
As the al-Masirah TV-channel reported, Yemeni fighters and their allies also launched a mortar attack on a gathering of Saudi mercenaries in Dhubab district in the southwestern part of the Yemeni province of Taiz.
At the same time, pro-Saudi militants were attacked by artillery units of the Houthi-Saleh alliance in two separate areas of Taiz. As result, a number of Saudi soldiers were killed.
Dozens of Saudi mercenaries were wounded and killed in clashes with fighters of the alliance, when they were trying to advance through the country’s northwestern province of Hajjah.
Meanwhile, the College of Military Engineering, located in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, as well as the district of Bani Matar in Sana’a province were targeted and struck by Saudi fighter jets. Sirwah district of the west-central Yemeni province of Marib was also pounded by the Saudi Air Force.
At the same time, terrorists of the Islamic State (IS) group attacked a residence in the western Yemeni province Bayda and beheaded a Yemeni civilian in front of his family.
The terrorist group, which mainly operates in Iraq and Syria, as well as al-Qaeda members have been using the Saudi invasion of Yemen in order to gain a foothold and advance in the country.
