Yemen’s Houthi forces kill Saudi soldiers in combat

Houthi fighters in Yemen say they have launched a major attack across the border with Saudi Arabia reportedly killing Saudi soldiers.

Saudi state media say Yemen‘s Houthi rebels have killed at least nine Saudi soldiers in a renewed military offensive.

The attacks happened in the southern Saudi provinces of Aseer, Jazan, and Najran.

It is the worst spate of violence since a UN-brokered peace deal was signed in December.
