Soldiers of the Yemeni Armed Forces, backed by the Popular Committees, have killed at least 30 mercenaries and regular troops of the Saudi kingdom in sniping operations all across the frontline.

In the governorates of Ma’rib and Aljawf, as well as in the Nihm district of Sana’a, Yemeni snipers have shot and killed over 30 Saudis over the past three days, according to a report by Yemen Press.

Aside from these operations, a military source in Yemen also stated that army troops and Popular Committees volunteers have been carrying out successfull offensives deep inside Saudi territory, striking the enemy at their very home soil.

Lastly, reports have surfaced about a large barrage of artillery fire that has ravaged several Saudi bases in Najran and Asir, leaving dozens of Saudis dead and many more wounded.

Mahrah tribes reject Saudi expansion in eastern Yemen

Published

SANA’A – The tribal elders and sheikhs of Mahrah governorate in eastern Yemen have renewed their opposition to Saudi military expansion and continued occupation of their ancestral lands. This decision was made after a tribal meeting that assembled following Saudi attempts at building a military base in Atab district.

Sheikh Abdullah bin Issa al Afar, the President of the General Council of al-Mahrah and Socotra, confirmed the decision to put aside tribal differences in order to defend the rights of Mahrah’s population.

Despite a previous agreement between the people of the region of Attab and the Saudi-led invaders, Saudi forces went back to develop and establish a camp in the territory near the coast of the directorate of Atab since the start of 2019.

Mahrah is the easternmost province of Yemen, right adjacent to the border with Oman. While thinly populated and tribal in nature, the area is of extreme strategic importance to the Saudi-led invaders. Several reports indicate that Saudi Arabia isn planning to illegally construct an oil pipeline through Mahrah, stretching from the Saudi oil fields to the coast of the Arabian Sea. Thereby, Riyadh could circumvent the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf and have immediate access to the open ocean for petroleum exports.

Observers believe that the new plans to construct Saudi bases in the governorate are meant to pave the way for the oil pipeline. Both of these plans have been heavily opposed by the Mahrah population, leading to several armed clashes and increasing unrest in the territory that so far has remained far from the frontlines.
