TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Yemeni snipers gunned down six Saudi soldiers in the kingdom's southwestern border region of Jizan in retaliation for the Riyadh regime's deadly attacks against the impoverished Arab country.

Five Saudi soldiers were killed by Yemeni snipers in Jadhea Namir and Qewa village, while another was shot in the Haskool region in Jizan, Yemen’s official Saba news agency reported.

The army's sniper unit, supported by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have over the past few days inflicted heavy losses on the Saudis in Jizan front, where two Saudi soldiers were killed on Friday in two separate sniper attacks.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to Hadi.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
