Joint Saudi forces foiled an infiltration attempt on Saturday carried out by the Houthi militias near the Najran district in the kingdom, according to security sources.

Saudi forces managed to kill dozens of Houthi and deposed Ali Abdulla Salah militia elements, as well as destroying five of their military vehicles.

Meanwhile, five residents were injured by two shells fired from inside Yemeni territory in the Samtah border province, in Jazan region on Saturday afternoon.

The residents, four Yemenis and an Egyptian were in their house when the attack took place.

Samtah has occasionally been a target of shelling from Yemeni territories.
