SANA’A: Yemeni army soldiers and fighters from allied Popular Committees have killed at least two Saudi soldiers during separate attacks in the kingdom’s southwestern border regions as part of their retaliatory raids against the Riyadh regime’s deadly campaign against their crisis-hit country.
Saudi Arabia’s Arabic-language al-Madina newspaper reported on Sunday that Prince Saud bin Abdullah bin Jalawi, Advisor to the Governor of Makkah Region Khalid bin Faisal Al Saud, met the families of deceased Faris Saeed al-Ghamedi and Badr Issa al-Salemi, and conveyed messages of condolences from King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to them.
The report, however, did not mention the military ranks of the Saudi troopers, and where exactly they been killed in clashes with Yemeni forces and their allies.
The development came a day after seven Houthi Ansarullah fighters were killed in clashes with Saudi-backed militiamen loyal to Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the country’s strategic western coastal province of Hudaydah.
A military official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the exchange of gunfire took place in the al-Tuhayat district of the province.
