DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:00 A.M.) – Nearly a dozen Saudi military vehicles were obliterated by a coordinated ambush conducted by Yemeni insurgents on Saturday.

Drone footage shows the exact moment the Saudi convoy was blown up by the Houthi-led Popular Committees whom used remotely detonated bombs to devastating effect on a road in the southwestern Saudi province of Jizan in anticipation of military deployments to the area.

Watching from hilltops overlooking the mountain pass, a bunch of unsuspecting Saudi soldiers were burned alive on the spot. Pictures of the attack:

Houthi forces are currently active inside three Saudi border governorates, constantly raiding army checkpoints and bases in retaliation over Riyadh’s hostilities inside Yemen.

Around 130 Saudi soldiers have been killed in 2017 alone due to the ongoing border war.

Lovely work, but such a pity there’s not a nice video to wrap it all up nice and tidy.

Those are CAT excavators and what looks like a D8 CAT dozer, a good 600-700k in equipment value total. We’re the Saudis using this as part of convoy or was this merely the medium used to hide the explosives?

The picture is confusing.
