On April 16, the Houthis repelled a large attack by the Saudi-led coalition on their positions in the mountains of al-Dayaq in the Yemeni Albuqa desert, south of the Saudi province of Najran, according to the Houthis media wing.
The source said that Houthi fighters had killed dozens of gunmen loyal to Saudi-backed Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi and had injured many others.
The failed attack was likely a response to an attack by Houthis on a Saudi Army position south of Najran province on April 13. Back then, Houthi fighters destroyed an infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) and two armored vehicles of the Saudi Army.
Since the beginning of April, the Saudi-led coalition has intensified its attempts to secure the Yemeni-Saudi border south of Najran and Jizan provinces. However, the Houthis are still capable of conducting successful cross-border attacks against the Saudi Army in the both provinces.
