Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have reportedly launched a missile attack against Saudi military forces in the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Jizan, leaving five of them dead.

A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Arabic-language al-Masirah television that five Saudi soldiers were killed and 10 others injured on Monday morning, when Yemeni forces and their allies fired a barrage of missiles at al-Mosem base in the area.

The source added that a number of military vehicles were destroyed in the retaliatory attack as well.

The development took place only a few hours after Yemeni soldiers and Popular Committees fighters launched a number of Katyusha rockets at separate gatherings of Saudi forces north of al-Mahrouq military base and al-Qawiyah village in Jizan region, with no reports of possible casualties.

Yemeni Katyusha rockets also struck areas near the Alab crossing in Saudi Arabia’s southern province of Dhahran al-Janoub on Sunday evening, but no reports of casualties were available.
