Three Saudi soldiers were killed by snipers shot by Ansar Allah militants in Asir and Jizan regions، southwestern Saudi Arabia.
"Snipers killed on Sunday two Saudi soldiers in the city of Asir، and a third in a modern in Jafan Mountain in Jizan،" a field source told Sputnik on Sunday.
The source added that the militants attacked supporters of Yemeni President Abderbo Mansour Hadi in Najran، and also targeted، using Katyusha rockets and artillery shells، other concentrations in Al Khadra village.
In early April، Arabic-language Yemen Watch news agency reported that nearly 120 Saudi soldiers had been killed in dozens of sniper operations carried out by Yemeni army soldiers، backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees. It added that most of the operations had been conducted in the kingdom’s southwestern Jizan region، where a total of 74 Saudi soldiers lost their lives in 22 encounters.
In early May، al-Masirah reported that Yemeni sharpshooters had managed to fatally injure as many as 64 Saudi troops in April alone.
A report by Reuters published in April last year said that at least 400 Saudi soldiers had been killed in cross-border fire since the start of the war in March 2015.
