Yemeni army soldiers, supported by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have shot dead more than a dozen pro-Saudi militiamen loyal to resigned Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Asir.
Yemeni troops and their allies fatally shot 14 Saudi soldiers in the the al-Alab border crossing of the region on Wednesday, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.
Earlier in the day, Saudi military aircraft carried out a dozen airstrikes against Sana’a International Airport, causing extensive damage to the already defunct site.
The developments came a day after Yemeni soldiers and Popular Committees fighters targeted three Saudi troopers in al-Haskoul and Tabbe al-Nassour bases of Saudi Arabia’s Jizan region, located 967 kilometers southwest of the capital Riyadh.
The Yemeni forces shot and killed four Saudi-sponsored militiamen near al-Alab border crossing as well.
