Arab coalition air forces bombed on Saturday night Houthi military positions off the Jazan port, when militias attempted to target civilian sites on the Saudi border.
Saudi forces provided military information to the coalition regarding the locations of Houthi and Saleh militias, who were stationed near Mount Doud and Mount Shada, Al Arabiya correspondent reported.
Military sources confirmed that the coalition targeted the two sites, which resulted in the destruction of B10 anti-tank shields, military vehicles and ammunition stores, engendering the killing of 27 Houthi and Saleh militiamen.
Yemen’s chief of staff, Mohammad Ali al-Maqdashi, had announced earlier that the Houthis had carried out mass executions targeting the members who tried to flee the fighting fronts in Marib.
Maqdashi condemned the executions of soldiers who left their positions in the Mokhadara in Sirwah after they realized they will lose the battle. He threatened that he will prosecute the Houthi leaders for their crimes against the Yemeni people.
