Yemeni Snipers Kill 3 Saudi Troops in Taiz, Asir
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Yemeni army snipers killed three Saudi troops as part of retaliatory operations against the ongoing Saudi aggression against the impoverished Arab country.
Two Saudi soldiers were sniped by Yemeni forces in the Arab country's southwestern Taiz province on Saturday, Lebanon’s al-Ahed website reported.
Also, a Saudi tank was destroyed after coming under Yemeni fire in the province.
Later in the day, the Yemeni snipers hit another Saudi trooper inside Saudi Arabia in the kingdom’s southwestern region of Asir, according to the report.
The attacks came in response to the continued aggression by Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies against Yemen, which started in March 2015.
The Saudi-led coalition has been launching deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in the past year and a half in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Nearly 10,000 Yemenis, including 4,000 women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
