Yemeni forces capture strategic mountain, Saudi base


Yemen’s army and popular committee forces have taken a strategic mountain in the province of Jawf from Saudi-backed mercenaries.

According to al-Masirah television network, the forces gained control over the Anbara mountain and nearby hills in the Ham area of Jawf’s Matun district on Sunday.

A military source said scores of mercenaries were killed and injured in the operation and their weapons and equipment seized.

Yemeni forces further continued to attack military positions in the Saudi territory in retaliation for the kingdom’s aggression against their impoverished nation. They managed to capture the Saudi military base of al-Jamim in the southwestern border region of Jizan.

A footage released on Sunday showed Yemeni forces looking around the base after they captured it and forced Saudi troops to flee. They also destroyed the main building of the base with explosives and seized Saudi military vehicles.

Separately, Saudi warships prevented a ship carrying fuel from entering the port of Hudaydah in Yemen, sources said Sunday.
