The Saudi-US aggression units sustained heavy casualties on Saturday in fierce battle against the Yemeni army and the Popular Committees in Taiz near Bab al-Mandeb Strait and retreated from the region.
Four armored vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition on Yemen were also destroyed.
The Saudi-led forces launched an offensive on the Yemeni positions near the strategic Bab al-Mandeb strait on Friday but were repelled after sustaining heavy casualties in the Yemeni forces’ counteroffensive.
The latest reports said the Saudi-led coalition forces have been pounding Yemeni army positions in the region with massive missile and air strikes ever since the retreat.
The Yemeni national military and the Committees also shot down a Saudi helicopter and drone in the Western parts of the country.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 192 days now to restore power to fugitive President Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,433 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Yemeni military, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
