TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Yemeni forces captured a military base in Saudi Arabia’s border region of Najran in their latest counterattack against the kingdom's military campaign in the impoverished southern neighbor.
They stormed the newly-constructed Shatib base some 844 km south of the capital Riyadh on Thursday, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported, according to Press TV.
The Yemeni soldiers and their allies engaged in an exchange of gunfire with Saudi troops at the base, leaving scores of them dead or injured.
A number of Saudi soldiers reportedly left their assault rifles and mortar shells behind and fled the base.
Yemeni troops have been trying to purge strategic military positions overlooking the city of Najran of Saudi soldiers.
