A Yemeni military source has said army troops and fighters from allied Popular Committees have targeted the positions of Saudi forces both inside Yemen and on Saudi soil, inflicting heavy losses on them in a new series of retaliatory attacks.

A Yemeni military source, whose name was not released in reports, said army troops and fighters from allied Popular Committees destroyed a number of bases and arms depots used by Saudi forces in an area situated between Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib and al-Jawf Province in the north on Friday.

The attack left an unspecified number of Saudi military forces dead and injured, Yemen’s Saba Net news agency reported.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni army foiled the advance of the Saudi military on the country’s southern region of At Tabab, killing three Saudi troops and detonating two Saudi armored vehicles loaded with explosives.

In addition, several Saudi soldiers were wounded in rocket attacks on their base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern region of Jizan. Other bases in the Saudi region of Najran also came under attacks by the Yemeni forces.

Elsewhere on the battlefield, Yemeni troops also killed a number al-Qaeda militants and Takfiri Daesh terrorists, destroying their hideouts in the Az Zahir dirstrict of the central al-Bayda province.

Yemeni forces seized weapons and military equipment from the terrorists.

Saudi aggression

The Yemeni operations come as Saudi fighter jets continue to pound different areas across Yemen.

Saudi warplanes bombarded several areas in Yemen’s northwestern Sa’ada Province more than 30 times, leaving several people dead or hurt.

Saudi jets also targeted a military base in the capital city of Sana’a, according to the Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network.

Homes were further destroyed in the Saudi air raids on a district in Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz.

Yemen has been under Saudi military strikes on a daily basis since March 26. The military campaign is supposedly meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and return Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, to power.

According to the latest tally, at least 7,000 people have lost their lives in the Saudi strikes, and a total of nearly 14,000 people have been injured so far; Press TV reported.
