Yemen: Houthi militia claimed to have seized several villages in Saudi Arabia


Yemen’s Shia Houthi militia claim to have seized several villages in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Jizan province, the Houthi-run SABA news agency has reported.

SABA quoted a military source as saying late Thursday that Houthi militiamen had taken control of the villages of Al-Kars and Al-Dafiniya — along with other villages — east of Al-Bahtit and south of Al-Qarn.

The same source also said that Houthi militiamen had captured a bridge linking Jizan’s Qaem Zubaid and Al-Ibadiya areas and the road to the nearby Al-Khubah area.

According to the source, who was not named, “scores” of Saudi soldiers were killed and injured in what he described as a “large scale” Houthi operation that also saw six Saudi armored vehicles and two combat tanks destroyed.

The news agency went on to report that Saudi army helicopters had bombarded the Al-Khubah area in response.
