DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:50 P.M.) – The Saudi Arabian Army (KSA) stood no chance in Najran Province on Tuesday as a garrison loyal to Riyadh was surrounded from all flanks while defending army bases and checkpoints in a mountainous region of southwestern Saudi Arabia that has been heavily infiltrated by Yemeni insurgents.
Footage released by the Sanaa-based Yemeni Government shows its armed wing shelling checkpoints around the Al-Makhrouk and Al-Sudais army bases after establishing complete fire control over the area, reducing the Saudi garrison to sitting ducks for Houthi field guns:
Al-Masdar News was unable to obtain information regarding the KSA death toll following the attack.
A similar artillery barrage conducted against a KSA base earlier this month indicates that Yemeni commanders prefer this type of low-risk strategy over head-on offensives within Saudi territory.
With Riyadh responding through warplanes, proxy Yemeni troops and foreign mercenaries, the outnumbered Houthi belligerents are increasingly relying on hit-and-run attacks and guerrilla warfare to combat the Saudi-led coalition.
