Saudi-led coalition losses at the hands of the Yemeni army forces in battlefronts
A number of Saudi soldiers were killed and others were injured in special operations carried by the Yemeni army forces in #Najran and Asir frontlines.
A military source told YemenExtra that they cleared a site for the Saudi soldiers in Najran, killing and injuring a number of them.
In the same context the source added that Saudi soldiers were killed and wounded in another attack on Saudis’ sites in #Asir.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, 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 60,000 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.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
