The Yemeni army backed by the popular committees targeted the positions of the Saudi-paid mercenaries’ positions in Bab al-Mandeb in Taiz province.

According to a military source on Monday, the allied forces also fired mortar shells on the militants in south Dhbab area, killing and wounding many of them.

On Sunday, dozens of Saudi-paid mercenaries, including top leaders were killed in the province during confrontations with Yemen’s national army and People’s Committees.

According to a military source, the confrontations that took place on Sunday, occurred in the areas adjacent to the air defense hilltop.

During the battles, top commanders of the Saudi-paid mercenaries including the leader of al-Saleek Brigade Ashraf Al-Majidi, Ishaq Abdo Hamoud, Hamza Tarbush, Hezam Ash’ari and Muhannad al-Shamiri were killed.

Saudi Arabia began its deadly campaign against Yemen in late March 2015. The strikes were meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

About 11,400 people have been killed and over 16,000 injured since Riyadh launched the airstrikes. The Saudi aggression has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen’s facilities and infrastructure.

Yemeni forces have been engaged in retaliatory attacks against the Saudi forces deployed in the country as well as targets inside Saudi Arabia.
