Yemeni snipers shoot dead Saudi trooper

Meanwhile, Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have shot dead a Saudi trooper in the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Asir in response to Riyadh’s deadly airstrikes on their country.

Yemeni forces and their allies targeted the Saudi soldier in the Nashmah military camp of the region on Saturday afternoon.

Saudi Arabia has been incessantly pounding Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to reinstate former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement. The Riyadh regime has, however, failed to reach its goals despite suffering great expense.

The military aggression has claimed the lives of more than 12,000 people, mostly civilians.
