On March 31, Houthi fighters targeted a vehicle of the Saudi Army with an IED in the Saudi southern province of Jizan, the Houthis’ media wing reported. The source said that all the Saudi Army soldiers who had been aboard of the targeted vehicle had been killed or injured in the IED attack.
A second IED planted by Houthi fighters targeted a group of Saudi Army soldiers, who were heading towards the site of the first attack, killing at least one soldier and injuring others.
The Yemeni al-Masirah TV also reported that Houthi snipers had killed six soldiers of the Saudi Army in the al-Haskul base in the southern part of Jizan province on March 31.
Since the outbreak of the Yemen war in 2015, the Houthis have conducted hundreds of cross-border attacks against the Saudi Army in the provinces of Jizan, Najran and Asir. Houthi fighters usually carry out their attacks with IEDs, sniper rifles and ATGMs.
Yemeni pro-Houthi sources claim that more than 500 soldiers of the Saudi Army have been killed by the Houthis, since 2015.
