Yemeni forces gun down six Saudi troops

Six Saudi soldiers have been hunted by Yemeni snipers

VON PRESS Middle East: According to Yemen's al-Masirah television, three of the Saudi troops were killed at the Shaja' military in Najran on Saturday night.

Earlier in the day, Yemeni snipers shot and killed three other soldiers at the military base of Tal'a in the same province.

Yemeni armed forces also launched rocket attacks at positions of Saudi-backed mercenaries near Khadra border crossing in Najran, killing and wounding a number of them.

Also on Saturday, army troops and allied force attacked the Saudi bases of Samnah and Afra in the kingdom's southwestern province of Jizan on Saturday night, leaving an unspecified number of military personnel there dead and injured.

The Yemeni army also fired several artillery shells at Saudi military positions in Jizan.

According to the report, massive explosions also hit the Saudi army's weapons warehouses to the west of Qais Mountain in Jizan.

Most recently, Saudi fighter jets pounded the Razih district in Yemen's Sa'ada province and Nihm district, northwest of the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia has been engaged in a deadly campaign against Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall the former Yemeni government.

The offensive has claimed 11,403 lives and left 19,343 others wounded, according to report by a Yemeni non-governmental monitoring group.

In a statement on Sunday, the Yemeni Human Rights Ministry condemned the Saudi regime for its crimes during the war on the Arabian Peninsula state, particularly its use of internationally-banned weapons against civilians.

The statement came days after Human Rights Watch censured Saudi-led forces for using cluster bombs in during the "unlawful" campaign against Yemen.

The New York-based rights body said "cluster munitions are prohibited weapons that should never be used under any circumstances due to the harm inflicted on civilians."
