Fighters from allied Popular Committees and Yemeni army soldiers have managed to capture al-Jaberi village in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Jizan located 966 kilometers south of the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

On Friday, Yemeni forces could wrest complete control of al-Jaberi village, located 966 kilometers (600 miles) south of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, without any resistance from the kingdom’s army soldiers, Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.

An unspecified number of Saudi soldiers were also killed when Yemeni soldiers and fighters from Popular Committees stormed al-Mosfaq military camp in Saudi Arabia’s al-Tawal region.

The development came as Saudi fighter jets pounded al-Nahdin district in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a later in the day, though there were no immediate reports on possible casualties and the extent of damage caused.

Saudi warplanes also bombarded a stadium in the central Yemeni city of al-Bayda, located about 210 kilometers (130 miles) southeast of Sana’a, but no casualties were immediately reported.

Moreover, Saudi military aircraft carried out 15 airstrikes against the city of Harad in Yemen’s northwestern Hajjah Province on Friday; however, no reports of casualties were available.

There are also reports that Saudi warplanes have used phosphorus bombs to hit Jabal al-Balaq mountain on the outskirts of Sirwah, which lies about 120 kilometers (75 miles) east of the Yemeni capital.

A Saudi missile attack also hit the Munabbih district of Sa’ada.

There is still no word on the extent of damage and possible casualties inflicted by the raids.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 192 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,433 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children; PRESS TV reported.
