On March 8, Houthi fighters attacked the al-Hathera military base of the Saudi Arm in the Southern Saudi province of Jizan, near the border with Yemen, according to the pro-Houthi al-Masirah TV. The TV channel said that the Houthis had destroyed two vehicles of the Saudi Army with IEDs and had killed several Saudi Army soldiers.
Few hours later, the Houthis media wing announced that Houthi fighters had conducted a new attack against two military bases of the Saudi Army in the areas of al-Qurn’a and N’ashu in Jizan province. Four vehicles of the Saudi Army were destroyed and several Saudi Army soldiers were killed by the Houthis there, according to reports.
Al Masirah TV also reported that four Saudi soldiers had been killed by Houthi snipers in different areas of the province of Jizan over the last 48 hours.
The Saudi-led coalition has conducted a series of operations to secure the Yemeni-Saudi border in the Yemeni province of Hajjah, south of Jizan province. However, the coalition has failed to penetrate the Houthis’ defenses in the rough desert of Midi.
