Several soldiers killed, injured as Yemenis launch drone strike on Saudi army: Report

Several Saudi soldiers have been killed and dozens of others sustained injuries when Yemeni army soldiers, backed by allied fighters from Popular Committees, launched an airstrike against a military position in the kingdom’s border region of Asir.

An unnamed Yemeni military source told Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that Yemeni soldiers and their allies attacked a gathering of Saudi troops in al-Rabu’ah town of the region on Sunday, using a domestically-designed and -manufactured Qasef K2 (Striker K2) combat drone.

The source added that several Saudi soldiers were killed in the aerial assault, and dozens of others sustained injuries.

Separately, scores of Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to Yemen’s former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, have been killed and injured when Yemeni soldiers and their allies struck their strongholds in the al-Wazi’iyah and Hayfan districts of the southwestern Yemeni province of Ta’izz.
