9 British forces killed in SW Saudi Arabia

Tehran, Feb 24, IRNA – Some 9 UK military forces were killed in a conflict with Yemeni army and popular committees in Najran, southwestern Saudi Arabia.

According to Yemeni Ansarallah website, the British forces were leading Saudi aggressors' attacks on border areas with Yemen.

Earlier last week, UK media 'Daily Express' reported that two forces from Special Air Service (SAS) who were deployed on a top-secret mission in Yemen were injured in a roadside bomb blast.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.

Earlier, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Iran has given no commitments to any party or country over Yemen.

He added that Tehran believes in establishment of a ceasefire in Yemen and is trying to pave the way for sending humanitarian aid there and holding intra-Yemeni talks.

Islamic Republic of Iran will spare no efforts in line with finding a peaceful solution to Yemen crisis and preventing continuation of humanitarian disaster in this country, Qasemi reiterated.
