Scores of Saudi coalition forces killed in Yemen

Tehran, Scores of Saudi coalition forces, including some Sudanese fighters, have been killed in north and west of Yemen.

According to the Arab media 'Al Mayadeen', they were killed in a conflict with the Yemeni army and popular committees in Jizan and Asir.

In the meantime, Yemeni forces destroyed seven Saudi Arabian military vehicles at the southern borders of Saudi Arabia on Saturday.

The Yemeni forces also prevented the advance of mercenaries of the Saudi army in Asir operational region, killing and wounding scores of them, including a number of Sudanese nationals.

In March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies, including the United Arab Emirates, launched an aggression on Yemen in a bid to return to power deposed Yemeni president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Riyadh and its allies have made no military achievements through their aggression except for turning the impoverished country into ruins.

Some 14,000 Yemeni civilians, mainly women and children, have been killed in the Saudi-led coalition aggressions against Yemen.
