The Yemeni army and popular committees frustrated a major attack launched by the Saudi-led mercenaries in Ajasher desert in Najran, inflicting heavy losses upon them.
The Yemeni forces managed to kill dozens of Saudi-led mercenaries and destroy many of their vehicles, according to field sources.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition, in a bid to restore control to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is Riyadh’s ally.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed and injured in the strikes launched by the coalition, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition, which includes in addition to Saudi Arabia and UAE: Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait, has been also imposing a harsh blockade against Yemenis.
