On June 2, Houthi fighters repelled a large attack of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies on their positions west of the area of Majazah in the Asir region on the Yemeni-Saudi border, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV. Reportedly, the Houthis killed several soldiers of the Saudi military and the Sudanese military during the clashes.
Meanwhile, the Houthis media wing announced that Houthi fighters had destroyed seven vehicles of the Saudi military in the southern Saudi provinces of Asir and Najran. The Houthis also destroyed two armored vehicles and three battle tanks of the Saudi military in the southern Saudi province of Jizan with ATGMs on June 1 and 2.

During the last two weeks the Yemeni-Saudi border didn’t witness heavy clashes, as the Houthis and the Saudi-led coalition were focusing on the western Yemeni coast. However, it appears that the Houthis are now trying to disturb the coalition by stepping up their cross border attacks.
According to observers, the Yemeni-Saudi border will likely witness heavier clashes in the upcoming days, if the Saudi-led coalition don’t resume its operations along the western Yemeni coast.
