Saudi forces launched a special operation off the Najran area, killing 20 Houthi militia and ousted Saleh loyalists on Wednesday.

Al Arabiya’s correspondent reported that Saudi forces earlier spotted an attempt by the militia to move towards the border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen to carry out an attack on the Saudi military control sites. The Saudi forces engaged in a military tactic to stop the progress of the elements through an ambush made up of infantry and support teams from Apache helicopters.

Saudi forces succeeded in executing the ambush and killed more than 20 militia elements and targeted a number of military vehicles.
