Yemeni forces killed at least 11 Saudi soldiers in retaliatory attacks on the Persian Gulf kingdom’s positions.
On Sunday, the Yemeni army fired mortar shells at the Southwestern Saudi province of Jizan, killing a soldier.
According to the Arabic-language Sabq news website, the Saudi soldier, Yehia Ghelis Al-Hadri was killed in the mortar attack.
Meanwhile, Ansarullah fighters and their allied army units also launched an attack on Saudi bases in the Southwestern border city of Najran, killing 5 soldiers.
The Yemeni forces also killed five other Saudi soldiers during an ambush attack carried out in the Asir region, located in Dhahran al-Janub.
Riyadh has confirmed the fatalities in the Southwestern province, where Yemeni armed forces also destroyed three Saudi bulldozers.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 173 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,847 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
