The Houthis’ engineer units have ambushed several vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition deep inside the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan in the recent few days, the al-Masirah TV revealed on January 23.
The Yemeni group’s media wing released a video showing three military vehicles of the coalition receiving direct hits from improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which had been planted by Houthi fighters. A fourth vehicle can be seen escaping an IED explosion by few meters.
The Saudi-led coalition claims that Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are providing the Houthis with technical support to manufacture advanced IEDs, including the type equipped with an automatic detonator linked to a passive infrared (PIR) sensor.
These attacks inside Saudi Arabia territory are likely was a response to the continues airstrikes of the coalition on the Houthis’ positions in northern and central Yemen.
