Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry confirms that a Saudi border guard has been killed in the clashes with Yemeni forces on the border with the impoverished Arab country.

According to a statement by the ministry on Monday, the border guard was killed after a Saudi military post in the district of Harth in the southwestern province of Jizan came under Yemeni fire earlier in the day.

The ministry did not identify the guard, nor did it release any further details on the clashes or possible casualties.

Earlier reports said that fighters from the Houthi Ansarullah movement, backed by allied army units, had carried out rocket attacks on several Saudi bases in Jizan, killing and injuring a number of Saudi soldiers.

It was also reported that the allied Yemeni troops seized the Faridhah military base and destroyed three Saudi armored vehicles in their retaliatory attacks against Saudi positions in Jizan.

Yemeni troops also launched an attack against Saudi-led foreign forces in Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib, killing scores of them, including a Qatari and an Emirati officer. At least 21 armored vehicles were destroyed during the raid.

The Yemeni attacks came in retaliation for the deadly Saudi aggression against several areas across Yemen. At least five African nationals were killed in the Saudi airstrikes on the district of Beihan in the southern province of Shabwah.

Saudi Arabia began its aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Ansarullah movement and restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
