Vanguards of Saudi National Guard troops arrive in Najran

Vanguards of the Saudi Ministry of National Guard troops arrived Sunday in the province of Najran to secure the Kingdom’s border with Yemen, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The Saudi border guards, who were sent after an order from King Salman bin Abdulaziz, will secure the frontier with Yemen from any possible threat.

The troops, which possess several types of weapons, are trained to carry out traditional combat and security missions.

Last week, the Saudi-led coalition spokesman said that the Kingdom’s ground and naval forces would continue to guard its border with Yemen despite the end of its campaign of air strikes, known as Operation Decisive Storm.

Last week, a Saudi border guard was killed and two troops wounded by heavy gun and mortar fire in Najran.
