The Houthis (Ansar Allah) have carried out new attacks against the Saudi military and its proxies near the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan.
On June 25, the Yemen group’s fighters stormed a Saudi military position in the area of al-Da’air. The fighters took control of the position and burned a pick-up vehicle, which had been left behind by Saudi forces.
A day earlier, the Houthis engineer units blow up a military bulldozer of Saudi forces east of the al-Dud Mount with an improves explosive device.
Such small-scale operations are meant to exhaust and deter the Saudi military and its Yemeni proxies on the Yemeni-Saudi border. The Houthis maintain a strong presence on the border with Saudi Arabia. The Saudi-led coalition has made numerous attempts to secure the border line since 2015, but failed to do so.
