Yemeni army forces, backed by popular committees, have taken control of two villages on the Saudi soil as they continue their retaliatory attacks against Riyadh’s military. Yemen’s al-Masirah TV said on Friday that the Yemeni forces managed to capture the villages of al-Vasetah and al-Khademah in the southern Saudi province of Jizan after targeting a number of military positions there. The report said the Yemeni forces also gained control of three military positions near the al-Mahdaf district in the same province, while they destroyed an armored vehicle belonging to the Saudi forces in the area. Meanwhile, a Saudi soldier was reportedly killed in an attack on al-Ma’naq military camp in Jahfan region. Attacks were also reported on Saudi positions in neighboring Najran Province, where a number of Saudi troops were killed after rockets were launched on the gates of the provincial customs department. More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since the Saudi strikes began in March. The Saudi war has also taken a heavy toll on the Arabian Peninsula country’s facilities and infrastructure. Riyadh launched the air strikes in a bid to block the advance of the Houthis and bring back to power the fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. The Amnesty International on Friday expressed outrage at Saudi airstrikes against schools in various provinces of Yemen, saying kids are “deliberately” killed across the country.
