the first soldier was killed in ambushes by the Yemeni army sharpshooters in the Faridhah military base and the second trooper was fatally wounded in Dafiniah village later in the day.
A report by Reuters published in April last year said that at least 400 Saudi soldiers had been killed in the cross-border fire since the start of the war in March 2015.
In early April nearly 120 Saudi troopers had been killed in dozens of sniper operations carried out by Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees. It added that most of the operations had been conducted in Jizan, where a total of 74 Saudi soldiers lost their lives in 22 encounters.
In early May, al-Masirah reported that Yemeni sharpshooters had managed to fatally injure as many as 64 Saudi troops in April alone.
The Riyadh regime has maintained a policy of ambiguity regarding its casualties in the war on Yemen. Senior military officials have said that they would not release such information until after the war.
