Saudi forces on Friday managed to thwart an attempt of the Houthis and forces of ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh to cross Saudi-Yemeni borders.
According to the Saudi al-Watan newspaper, a number vehicles loaded with ammunitions, Katyussa rockets and fighters were targeted.
Air-fighters of the Arab Coalition managed to destroy a number of sites and hideouts which were used by the Houthis, killing, in the meantime, 26 fighters of the militias.
The Saudi newspaper affirmed that the Saudi forces could identify a number of positions which were used by the Houthis to store weapons, pointing out that they were targeted and destroyed by Saudi air fighters.
Saudi forces have recently carried out clearing operations during the past few days on Yemen-Saudi borders, killing a number of the militias and destroying military vehicles and ammunitions.
