The Yemen army and Popular Committees forces have achieved a qualitative progress on the border with Saudi Arabia and seized control over new sites oversees the kingdom’s territory.

Army and Committees sources confirmed to Al-Manar TV that the national military has fully controlled the Al-Shurfa area on the border with Saudi province of Najran after storming the military post in the region and its checkpoint.

The sources added that Al-Shurfa is a strategic site overlooking the Najran province, which allows the Yemeni fighters to establish control over it using medium weapons.

In a similar development, the Yemeni army forces and the Popular Committees stormed the Saudi al-Hajer military site and destroyed the control tower inside it after all garrison fled away

Saudi Arabia is launching a wide-scale military campaign against Yemen and  it has been striking the impoverished nation for the last 144 days to restore power to fugitive president Abed-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,419 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Praise be to GOD for each wonderful victory achieved by the Yemeni armed forces against the illegally invading Saudi, U.A.E. and other Arab Gulf State supported invading forces. God is a God of justice and righteousness and is answering prayers of many for the Saudis to be thoroughly stopped and defeated. May the Yemenis TAKE OVER SAUDI ARABIA!! and punish the filthy rotten govt. for all the 1000s of lives it has already cruelly caused to be taken. Should the U.S. try to stop them, one question: Remember VIETNAM?
