According to the military source, the Yemeni forces carried out a military operation in the village of Mujazah in Asir that was turned into military barracks by the Saudi Army.
The source pointed out that during the operation, a rocket launcher was destroyed, while also a military vehicle loaded with Saudi soldiers was targeted. The source stressed the vehicle had been destroyed as well, inflicting casualties on the troops who were onboard.
Al-Masirah Net reported on Wednesday that Yemeni forces’ artillery units targeted the government complex of Al Rabwa city and gatherings of the Saudi army along with allied mercenaries at Aleeb border-crossing.
Arab media sources said on Wednesday that the Yemeni tribal fighters killed several American troops after they launched a heliborne attack on a village in Yemen’s Central province of Ma’rib,.
At least 30 troops from the US and some Persian Gulf states were deployed in the rural area of Khathla and engaged in a gun battle with fighters from two prominent tribes in the village, Yemen’s Khabar news agency reported.
It added that during the ensuing fierce battle at least seven of the invading troops were fatally injured, who had come there with the purported mission of gunning down militants of the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) Takfiri terrorist group.
The report, however, added that no militants of the terror group were in the area when three Apache choppers and two military transport aircraft of the US approached the village.
