Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have shot dead eight Saudi troops and pro-Saudi militiamen loyal to resigned Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the kingdom’s southwestern border regions of Jizan and Asir.

They killed three Saudi troops in the Tabat al-Zabreh area of Jizan region, located 969 kilometers south of the capital, Riyadh, on Wednesday evening, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.

Army troops and Popular Committees fighters also launched an attack on an outpost in the Tabat al-Ghomameh area of the same Saudi region, killing a Saudi trooper there.
