Yemen’s army, backed by popular forces, killed and injured at least 100 Saudi soldiers and mercenaries in less than two days of retaliatory attacks against military positions in the kingdom’s Southwestern regions, a report said. Some half of those killed in Saudi Arabia’s border regions of Jizan, Najran and Asir in the last 36 hours were Saudi soldiers, Al Masirah reported. In Jizan, a military source said the Yemeni troops stormed the Saudi military bases of al-Dafina, al-Kars, al-Qarn, Qaem Zubaid and al-Bahtit, killing and injuring at least 40 military men, including officers. The source added that seven American-made Bradley fighting vehicles were also destroyed during the attacks. Yemeni forces fired a number of Zelzal-1 and Katyusha missiles on Saudi military positions in the same region.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni soldiers also killed and wounded many Saudi mercenaries during the operations that started Tuesday in the Alib mountain range near al-Khadra border crossing in Najran. An unspecified number of mercenaries were also captured. Yemeni snipers also shot dead a soldier in al-Makhrouq base in Najran. In Asir, the Saudi army also suffered heavy losses as the Yemeni forces targeted their military positions. The Yemeni troops stormed the region’s al-Masial military base and Alib command post, leaving many soldiers dead. They later destroyed the command Yemeni artillery shells also hit a gathering of Saudi army troops in al-Rabou'a as well as al-Hajer military camp in Asir. The attacks come in retaliation for Saudi Arabia's destructive military campaign against Yemen that has started since March 2015 to reinstate former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and crush the Ansarullah movement.

The campaign has seriously damaged the country’s infrastructure. Local Yemeni sources have put the death toll from the Saudi war at over 13,100, including many women and children.
