DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:20 P.M.) – On Sunday, the Saudi Arabian Army and aligned forces began attacking Houthi-held positions around the Anbarah Mountain in Al-Jouf province after which heavy clashes broke out between the warring parties.
With clashes raging on throughout the day, the Houthi-led Popular Committees finally managed to repel the assault, leaving many dead Saudi troops dead in the wake of the brief offensive.
Houthi soldier also captured ammunition and light weaponry following the failed attack which the Sanaa-based government claimed to be a carefully planned ambush.
Anbarah Mountain overlooks much of Saudi border and is regularly used as a launching pad to strike behind enemy lines in Saudi Arabia. As such, the hill top is frequently attacked although it remains under Yemeni control for now.
