Saudi forces defended the border with Yemen from Houthi militias, stopping them from getting closer, Al Arabiya reported.
At least four Houthis were killed after attempting to approach the Saudi-Yemen border.
The militias, who wore uniforms of the deposed president’s special forces, began their failed attempt at the break of night.
Several military equipment were seized from them, including weapons, explosive devices of various sizes and rocket-propelled grenades.
Houthi militias have previously carried out failed attempts to infiltrate the Saudi border, as well as smuggle in civilians.
