On September 4, the Houthi-Saleh alliance launched an attack on the Tuwal Border-Crossing into southern Saudi Arabia, seizing several points along the Yemeni-Saudi border. However, the Houthi-Saleh forces have not been able to seize the border-crossing itself.
According to local sources 41 Saudi soldiers have been killed and a vehicle destroyed in the clashes. Pro-Saudi sources say that the attack has been “successfully” repelled. No information about casualties has been provided.
