Ten of Houthi militias and forces loyal to former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh are being killed in attempting to breach the Saudi-Yemeni border, Saudi Defense Minister Adviser Maj. Gen. Ahmed Asiri told Al Arabiya’s sister channel Al Hadath.

“Attempts by the militias to infiltrate the borders of Saudi Arabia have not yet stopped,” he said. “The Saudi border will never be part of any settlement in Yemen,” he added.

Assiri’s comments come after footage and images of parade held by women loyal to the Houthi movement circulated on social media, showing children and infants alongside women carrying rifles and heavy artillery as they paraded in trucks declaring support to the militias.
