The Houthis carried out another successful large-scale attack on the Saudi-led coalition in the Kingdom’s southern province of Najran on June 6.
A video released by the Yemen group’s media wing shows Houthi fighters destroying a military truck and a position of coalition forces with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). The Houthis can be also seen burning two LAV-25 infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) inside a position of the Saudi Arabia National Guard (SANG).
In the course of the attack, Houthi fighters captured loads of weapons, including two Belgium-made FN F2000 assault rifles equipped with FN GL1 40mm grenade launchers, a Swedish-made Carl Gustaf 84 mm recoilless rifle and four US-made AN/PVS-5 dual-tube night-vision goggles. These weapons and equipment are in active service with the SANG’s elite units.
A day earlier, the Houthis carried out two similar operations in Najran, during which several armored vehicles of the coalition were destroyed and many Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters were killed.
The Saudi-led coalition have been trying to secure the Kingdom’s border with Yemen for more than four years now.
