Saudi forces carry out operations near Yemen border, killing 70 Houthis

he third operation, the largest which lasted a whole day, was off Najran, where the Joint Operations Room spotted huge Houthi support elements and vehicles moving toward the Saudi border city.

Military operations carried out by Saudi forces succeeded in supporting coalition aircrafts against Houthi militias and the guards of Yemen’s former leader Ali Abdullah Saleh off the border in the past day.

Al Arabiya was able to confirm that a military plan developed by the joint operations command of the Saudi forces, in addition to the coalition’s support, was carried out in multiple areas aimed at targeting the support of the Houthi and Saleh militias from inside Yemen toward the Yemeni provinces and districts overlooking the Saudi border.

The first operation was carried out by members of the Yemeni army backed by Apache helicopters and Saudi artillery in Wadi Abdullah, located in Harad which extends from Yemen to the Saudi border, after militias attempted to penetrate the control points on the Saudi border. They failed after facing Saudi border troops who were able to kill more than 20 Houthis while others escaped.

The second operation took place opposite al-Raboah border city, where Saudi forces carried out an operation on the positions of the militias, whose mission was to launch missiles toward populated areas across the border. The operation succeeded in destroying those sites and killing the militants after the advance of a Saudi infantry battalion.

The third operation, the largest which lasted a whole day, was off Najran, where the Joint Operations Room spotted huge Houthi support elements and vehicles moving toward the Saudi border city. Saudi forces carried out a military plan that destroyed this support that advance.
