DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:30 P.M.) – As heavy clashes persist across three southern provinces of Saudi Arabia, Yemen’s military announced on Tuesday that Houthi-led gunmen have killed 119 Saudi troops through sniper fire alone since the beginning of the year. Dozens more were killed by artillery shelling, raids and tit-for-tat skirmishes.
According to the newly released statement, deadly Houthi sniper fire targeted 39 military bases, outposts and checkpoints in the Najran, Jizan and Asir governorates.
Earlier today, the Houthi-led Popular Committees alongside the Republican Guard also destroyed a Saudi armored vehicle with an anti-tank missile at the Sadui Al-Sudais base, leaving the crew to be burnt alive in the Najran region. In addition, Yemen’s Missile Forces bombarded Saudi troops at Camp Rajla on Wednesday.
