Yemeni Forces Take Control of Key Military Base in Jizan


The Yemeni army and popular forces took over a strategic military base in the Southern parts of Saudi Arabia.

The Yemeni forces seized control of Mash’al military base in the province of Jizan in Southern Saudi Arabia.

Tens of Saudi troops were killed and several of their military vehicles and tanks were also destroyed during the Yemeni forces’ raid on the base.

On Sunday, several US military advisors of the Saudi army were killed and wounded in heavy clashes with Yemen’s revolutionary forces in Saudi Arabia’s Najran region.

“The Yemeni revolutionary committee forces killed three US military advisors and wounded two others in the Southern province of Najran,” Abu Hessam, a senior Ansarullah commander, told FNA.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 159 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,602 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
