DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:25 P.M.) – On Tuesday afternoon, Yemeni insurgents conducted a hit-and-run attack inside the southern border province of Jizan.

Targeting two Saudi Army pickup trucks on the outskirts of the Ujbah military base, Houthi militants scored direct hits with guided anti-tank missiles, forcing the government soldiers to flee and abandon their vehicles.

Houthi fighters filmed the whole ordeal from afar, closely monitoring the Saudi positions:

Back in 2015, Saudi Arabia deployed 100 warplanes and some 150,000 soldiers to Yemen in a bid to quell the Houthi-led popular uprising. In response, Yemeni fighters loyal to the Sanaa-based government invaded three provinces of Saudi Arabia.
