The Yemeni army and popular forces launched a fresh round of attacks on the Saudi forces' positions in the kingdom's Najran province, killing tens of Arab coalition troops, including a Saudi colonel.

Colonel Bandar bin Hamd al-Rahwi, a senior commander of Saudi Arabia's Armed Forces, was killed inside an Abrams tank in al-Makhrouq military base when his tank came under the Yemeni forces' attack.

Several other Saudi officers and soldiers were also killed along Colonel al-Rahwi in al-Makhrouq military base in Najran province.

A large number of the militants' military and armored vehicles were also destroyed by the Yemeni popular forces in the battle.

Meantime, five other Abrams tanks of the Saudi troops were destroyed by the Yemeni army and popular forces.

In a relevant development on Sunday, the Yemeni forces also destroyed five other Abrams tanks in Jizan province.

Also on Sunday, the Yemeni army targeted and destroyed a Saudi reconnaissance airplane and an Abrams tank in the kingdom's South and Southwest.

"The Saudi spy plane was downed in Mojazeh border region in Assir province," the Arabic-language al-Masira news agency quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

The source noted that the Yemeni army destroyed an Abrams tank with a TOW anti-tank missile in Rajla military zone in Najran province on Sunday.
