The Yemeni army forces have killed four Saudi Soldiers after hitting two military bases in the kingdom’s southern provinces of Jizan and Najran with mortar shells.

 The al-Ojabah base in Jizan and al-Soh base in Najran came under Yemeni mortar fire earlier in the day, according to a military official

Meanwhile, the Saudi military in one of its affiliated twitter accounts confirmed the news.

They also launched an attack against the coalition’sunits deployed in the Baqim Mountain in Yemen’s northern province of Jawf and established full control over the mountain after driving enemy force out of the area.

Additionally, they inflicted heavy damage on the coalition, killing several paid fighters, mostly Sudanese.

In March 2015, the coalition — mainly the united Arab Emirates and Jordan — started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, part of the Yemeni army forces, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and  prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
