Houthis: Snipers kill at least six Saudi soldiers daily

A Houthi military spokesman told Al Jazeera that their snipers kill between six to eight Saudi soldiers and mercenaries every day, in addition to the destruction of at least three Saudi military vehicles daily. Houthi losses have also been great.

    His trip comes as the Saudi-led coalition campaign against Houthi fighters in Yemen enters its third year.
