BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 P.M.) – Houthi rebels have conducted a daring mountain-hopping assault against a key Saudi military firebase inside the kingdom’s southern province of Najran. The raid resulted in the slaughter of all Saudi troops present at the installation.
In recent days, Houthi rebels operating inside southern Saudi Arabia carried out a powerful attack on the Al-Dabaa military outpost.
Using ladders, Houthi fighters positioned themselves for the attack on hilltops adjacent to the mountain on which the Al-Dabaa firebase stands and then commenced their assault on the installation with light and medium weapons.
Caught off-guard, Saudi troops were unable to prevent Houthi rebels from breaching the base’s security perimeter.
Regime troops that had not fled the Al-Dabaa outpost by the time Houthi fighters entered it were ultimately all killed. After this the Yemeni rebels took full control of the base and the mountain which it commands.
Pro-Houthi media released footage (seen below) of the rebel group’s operation on Wednesday.
