AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Yemeni army and popular committees announced that 455 Saudi forces have been killed in Yemen over the past 7 days.
According to Yemeni media ‘Saba’, Saudi military forces have conducted 13 operations all of which were foiled by Yemeni forces.
Some of the injured Saudi forces have been hospitalized in Ma’arib, a source said on the condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, Spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Saree told Saba that Saudi forces escalated attack on the occasion of starting the second round of peace talks in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of Mansour Hadi back to power and crushing the country’s Houthi Ansarullah Movement.
Some 16,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.
The assaults of the Saudi-led coalition forces have failed to stop the Yemenis from resisting the aggression.
Earlier, the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message expressed Iran’s support for the intra-Yemeni talks to resolve the crisis.
“Iran supports the upcoming intra-Yemeni talks in Sweden. All sides should enter constructive and responsible engagement to end the crisis in #Yemen. The world has historic responsibility to back dialogue incl by halting arming of aggressors,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter account.
