VIDEO: Saudi border forces counter Houthi attack near Najran

Saudi forces were able to counter an attack from Houthi militias and forces loyal to former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh in the border region near Najran.

The counter-attack came after several Houthi militias were able to breach into Saudi border on Friday afternoon but Saudi forces were able to stop their advance.

Several of the militias and one of their leaders were injured in the counter-attack by Saudi forces.

Friday’s action comes just a day after the trilateral high UAE-Saudi-Yemen committee, chaired by Yemeni Vice President Lt. General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, held its first meeting in Jeddah to discuss its work and recent contacts made between the political leaders of the three member states.
