SHAFAQNA -Â Saudi-led forces said on Friday four Saudis were killed after an attack was launched on border areas in Jizan and Najran by the Yemeni fighters and their allied forces.
A statement on the official Saudi news agency SPA said that an attack had been launched from the Yemeni side into Saudi Arabia’s Jizan and Najran areas and a battle had taken place since the early hours of Friday and until noon in which also tens of Yemenis were killed.
Four Saudis aggressors were also killed in the battle, one officer from the National Guard, two ground forces officers and one border guard, the statement said.
Saudi fighter jets also bombarded areas in Yemenâ€™s provinces of Shabwah and Hajjah on Friday. At least 11 people were killed and one person was wounded in the attacks on the Harad district of Hajjah province.
Saudi warplanes also pounded the northern province of Saâ€™ada over 20 times in less than an hour, and killed three people and injured eight others in the residential areas in the Rahban district of the province.
In other air assaults on Friday, the Riyadh regimeâ€™s fighter jets targeted a military base in Yemenâ€™s Lahij province and hit several areas in the capital Sanaâ€™a, the possible casualties of which have not yet been reported.
On June 2, the United Nations Childrenâ€™s Fund (UNICEF) reported that from May 27 to June 2, two Yemeni children had been killed and 30 others maimed during the attacks.
Saudi Arabia has intensified its aerial bombardment of different Yemeni cities ahead of the UN-brokered talks among the countryâ€™s political factions scheduled to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 14.
The Riyadh regime launched the military aggression against Yemen on March 26. Saudi Arabia is trying to undermine the Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement, now in control of Sanaâ€™a and several major provinces, and bring back to power Yemenâ€™s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
Saudi Arabiaâ€™s war on Yemen has not been endorsed by the UN. The world body has said that about 2,000 people have been killed and over 500,000 displaced as a result of the conflict in the Arab country since March 19.
