Yemeni forces launched on Monday a wide-scale operation aimed at taking control of several areas in Saudi Jizan.
Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network quoted a statement by Yemen’s army and popular committees as saying that heavy losses were inflicted upon Saudi-led forces during the operation.
The allied forces managed to gain control of MBC and Roqaa observation towers, along with four villages: Qanboura, al-Qayyimah, Assubayra and al-Amdan, al-Massirah reported, adding that many Saudi-led forces were killed or injured during the operation.
Saudi forces tried to retake the posts, but their attempts were foiled and their losses increased, al-Massirah added.
Furthermore, three Saudi drones were downed and several vehicles were also destroyed.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led Coalition, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed and injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
