Published: Updated:

The Arab coalition forces foiled an infiltration attempt by the Houthi militia and ousted-Saleh loyalists in one of the border areas between the Yemeni province of Saada and the Saudi Arabian region of Jazan.

Yemeni military sources said that Apache helicopters belonging to the Arab coalition in support of the legitimacy in Yemen bombed groups of militias who tried to infiltrate into Saudi territory off the village of Huraira in Jazan, resulting in dozens of dead and wounded in the ranks of the militias.

Meanwhile, coalition fighters targeted militia positions and reinforcements with five raids in the Haradh and Medi districts of Hajjah province in northwestern Yemen.

The coalition raids coincided with violent clashes between the national army and the militias in the Midi front.
