Saudi Arabia foils Houthi attempt to infiltrate Najran, Jazan borders

Published: Updated:

Saudi land forces backed by coalition aircrafts were able to foil an attempted attack by Houthi militias on Sunday morning to breach the borders near Jazan and Najran.

Al Arabiya’s correspondent reported that Houthi militias started two simultaneous attacks in both border regions by firing Katyusha rockets at Saudi security posts in the village of al-Qarn in Jazan and al-Shorfa in Najran.

Saudi forces were quickly to stop the attempt by targeting the Houthi militias stationed near the front lines of the border through artillery attacks that targeted them at a distance of 25 km, while the rest of the militias who tried to breach the border where targeted with direct fire.

A coalition aircraft supported the military operation by destroying a number of mobile military vehicles carrying Houthi militias near the Saudi border.

Military sources confirmed the killing of a Houthi commander and scores of fighters, with the destruction of military vehicles and vehicles carrying militias.
