Saudi Army runs into big trouble as Houthi roadside bombs detonate all over the place

Incredible footage has emerged from Saudi Arabia’s southern border depicting a cunning ambush set up by Houthi troops at an undisclosed mountainous border point in Jizan province.

On Sunday, at least four soldiers of the Royal Saudi Land Forces (KSA) were killed-in-action after roadside bombs inflicted a heavy blow upon Saudi vehicles that were passing through the region on patrol, searching for Yemeni insurgents that were watching them all the while, patiently waiting for the right moment to detonate their hidden explosives.

In direct response to Riyadh’s ongoing military intervention in Yemen, thousands of Houthi fighters have slipped across the border to infiltrate the governorates of Najran, Asir, and Jizan and spy on Saudi guards to conduct hit-and-run attacks against the KSA.

Regrettably, over 2,500,000 Yemeni civilians have been displaced since civil war erupted on the Arabian Peninsula in March 2015 with Iran and Saudi Arabia backing rival governments, in Sanaa and Aden respectively, and the embattled country’s chaos spawning the rise of ISIS and Al-Qaeda alike.
