Tehran, Oct 28, IRNA - Yemeni forces pounded positions of Saudi military men in Jizan, southern Saudi Arabia with artillery shells Saturday, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency quoting Almasirah news network.

Almasirah reported that the Yemeni army forces and members of popular committees inflicted heavy casualties on Saudi troops and affiliated mercenaries by targeting their positions with artillery shells in Al-Khobe region.

The Yemeni army forces and popular committees also launched an offensive against a number of positions of Saudi troops in JIzan, inflicting heavy casualties on them and destroying two military vehicles. They also blew up a military watch tower.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Some 16,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.
