BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – The Houthi forces claimed on Thursday evening that their troops had killed several Gulf-backed fighters across Yemen and southern Saudi Arabia these past 48 hours.
According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, their troops managed to kill at least a half dozen Gulf-backd fighters in the Al-Duraihemi District of southern Hodeideh this morning.
The Houthi forces then claimed another three Gulf-backed fighters were killed in Al-Jawf and another three in the Al-Lahj Governorate.
However, the majority of the 34 Gulf-backed fighters were killed in southern Saudi Arabia on Thursday, when the Houthi forces carried out a new offensive in the Jizan region.
The Houthi forces reportedly killed 19 Saudi soldiers in the Al-Khoba, Bajal, and Jabal Dokhan areas of the Jizan region after launching a fresh offensive.
Another four Saudi soldiers were killed in the Asir and Najran provinces, the Houthi forces added.
