Saudi Arabian forces repelled an attack by Houthi militias and Saleh loyalist forces in the Jazan region south of the Kingdom.

Factions of militias crossed the Saudi border to attack military checkpoints across several axes, Al Arabiya was told.

Saudi forces engaged the militias with air support from coalition jets which targeted the militias military reinforcements.

Sources confirmed that the Saudi forces killed dozens of militias, and destroyed stockpiles of weapons and ammunition.
