On September 29, the Houthis announced that they captured two soldiers of the Saudi Army during attacks in Najran province on the Yemeni-Saudi border. The two soldiers are Adel Muta’ab al-Rashidi, and Abu al-Muhssen Fahd al-Ghamidi. The both are from the Saudi Army 6th Brigade.
On a video released by the Houthis media wing the two Saudi soldiers called the Saudi government to exchange them with Yemeni captives. Moreover, in the video on of the two soldiers, Abu al-Muhssen Fahd al-Ghamidi appeared to be injured.
The number of Saudi soldiers captured by the Houthis have doubled to four soldiers within a week only. As the Houthis media wing announced previously on September 22 that Houthi fighters captured two Saudi soldiers during raids inside Saudi Arabia.
In a related development, the Yemeni News TV channel al-Masirah announced that Houthi fighters attacked the Saudi Army al-Shabakah position in Najran province. According to al-Masirah, several Saudi soldiers were killed or wounded in the attack.
Even after two years the Saud-led coalition is still incapable of securing the Saudi border with Yemen. In turn, the Houthis are still able to attack the Saudi Army inside southern Saudi Arabia on regular basis.
