Yemeni soldiers and Popular Committees fighters seized control of al-Me’zab base in southwestern Saudi Arabia near the border with Yemen on Friday.

The Saudi forces in the base fled the site en masse.

The Yemeni forces released footage of the military base following the operation to seize it.

Earlier on Thursday, Yemen’s army and Popular Committees took control of al-Tuwal heights in the Jizan region of southwestern Saudi Arabia.

Yemen’s al-Masirah reported back then that the Yemeni forces entered the mountainous area near the border with Yemen and destroyed several Saudi military vehicles as well as ammunition forcing the Saudi soldiers to withdraw from the region.

The United Nations says that, since March 19, over 1,800 people have been killed and 7,330 injured due to the conflict in Yemen, which was exacerbated by the Saudi airstrikes.
