Yemeni army declared the area beyond the Yemeni border a ‘pure military target’ by the army and the popular committees.
Army spokesman Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman said the Yemeni soldiers and popular committees fighters have been watching movements of Saudi forces along the border with Yemen, stressing that the allied Yemeni forces will deal with such movements according to rules of engagement with hostile force.
Luqman was quoted by Saba news agency as saying that the Saudi regime has been targeting Saudi areas in Jizan, Assir and Najran because the residents of these regions oppose the war on Yemen.
The media policy adopted by the Saudi-led coalition has been exposed since the first day of the aggression, the army spokesman noted adding that this policy was based on fabrications and announcing elusive victories.
“Following the miserable failure of the aggression, it’s normal that the Saudi-led coalition will resort to mean propaganda in a bid to tarnish the image of the army and committees heroes.”
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Riyadh launched the campaign against Ansarullah revolutionaries (known as Houthis) in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the aggression, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
