Published: Updated:

The Arab coalition renewed its targeting of sites besieged by Houthi militias and forces loyal to Yemen’s former deposed president on Sunday near the village of Al Khubah, Jazan.

Al Arabiya’s correspondent reported that the reconnaissance teams on the ground spotted military vehicles carrying dozens of militias near the area, while another convoy of militias at a nearby site attempt to move towards Yemen’s border with Saudi Arabia.

According to military sources, Saudi ground forces dealt with some of the positions where the militias had been stationed. The other areas were targeted by coalition aircraft. The operation resulted in the killing of more than 40 Houthi militias and the wounding of others.

Three military vehicles carrying Houthis militias opposite the border with Saudi Arabia were also destroyed.
