Published: Updated:

Saudi forces on Friday carried out a full-scale military operation off Jazan, a city near the Yemen border, in which they ambushed Houthi elements who tried to infiltrate the border checkpoint.

The mission was carried out by members of the Saudi army infantry, carrying sophisticated weapons to target the militia in mountainous areas where Houthis were gathering to reinforce before their attempt to infiltrate the border.

Around 30 Houthi militiamen were killed in the attack, while militia attack posts were also destroyed.
