Press TV- Yemen’s army and popular committees have killed at least two Saudi troops in the kingdom’s southern province of Najran, in retaliation for Riyadh’s ongoing aggression against the impoverished country.

Yemen’s Arabic language al-Masirah news channel said the soldiers were killed in firing by Yemeni forces at al-Sudais military site on Friday.

In another retaliatory rocket attack, Yemeni forces destroyed at least one Saudi army tank at al-Ash military base in the same province.

Yemeni forces also targeted several Saudi military bases and strategic positions in the southern province of Jizan.

Meanwhile, Saudi warplanes carried out multiple airstrikes on Yemen’s provinces of Sana’a and Hudaydah.

In the southern port city of Mokha, one Yemeni civilian was killed and three others were injured when Saudi jets struck a residential area.

The Saudi war on Yemen, which has reportedly killed at least 11,400 people, was launched in an attempt to reinstate the former regime.

The Yemeni army, backed by Houthi Ansarullah fighters and allied popular committees, has been defending the country against the deadly Saudi aggression.
