(AhlulBayt News Agency) - A recent report has revealed that Yemeni army soldiers and fighters from allied Popular Committees killed and injured dozens of Saudi soldiers in the kingdom’s southwestern border regions in June as part of their retaliatory raids against the Riyadh regime’s aerial bombardment campaign.
Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, citing unnamed Saudi social media activists, reported that Yemeni forces and their allies fatally shot 30 troopers in the regions of Jizan, Najran and Asir last month.
Another 46 also sustained injuries in retaliatory attacks.
This is while the Saudi Press Agency asserted that only 26 soldiers had been killed in clashes with Yemeni troops and allied fighters.
Yemeni army troopers and Popular Committees fighters also launched a salvo of Katyusha rockets at a gathering of Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to Yemen's former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi at al-Sadis military base in Saudi Arabia’s southern border region of Najran.
An unidentified number of Saudi mercenaries lost their lives and sustained injuries in the attacks.
Saudi fighter jets also carried out ten airstrikes against residential buildings and farming lands in the Baqim district of Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada, though no immediate reports about possible casualties and the extent of damage caused were immediately available.
Additionally, Saudi warplanes launched four air raids against Kitaf wa al-Boqe'e district in the same Yemeni province. No fatalities were quickly reported.
Meanwhile, a journalist and political commentator has lambasted the international community over its failure to put an end to the devastating Saudi-led military aggression against Yemen.
“Millions of people are under constant attack from a coalition of forces led by Saudi Arabia and the International community is not doing anything about it.
