Shelling by Yemeni group kills four soldiers on Saudi border


Shelling by Yemen’s Houthi militia killed four soldiers from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates stationed on Yemen’s border with the kingdom, Saudi state media reported on Thursday.

The Houthis have stepped up attacks on Saudi border posts in recent weeks, despite three months of bombardment by Saudi-led coalition intent on restoring Yemen’s government in exile.

Two soldiers from the Royal Saudi Land Forces, one from the kingdom’s Border Guards, and a UAE officer were killed on Wednesday in three incidents along the border, a mostly mountainous area.
