At least four Saudi soldiers have reportedly been killed and twenty others injured in clashes with Yemeni tribesmen. According to Yemeni media, the fighting happened in Dhahran region, with the number of fatalities expected to rise. There’ve been reports of rising casualties among Saudi forces stationed near the Yemeni border. Several others lost their lives in Najran province last Friday.

Saudi ground forces have also shelled border regions over the past weeks.

Rouhani strongly condemnes Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has strongly condemned Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen. Rouhani said the attacks on the oppressed people of Yemen have created a grudge among people in regional countries. He warned of the serious repercussions of the Saudi aggression. The Iranian President made the remarks in a speech marking the National Army Day. Rouhani gave assurances that Iran’s military might is a deterrent force and is aimed at establishing peace and security in the region. He also said that Tehran will remain committed to international law over its nuclear energy program.

Following Rouhani’s speech, various units of the army paraded, displaying their latest military hardware and weaponry. Iran’s Bavar-373 air defense system, which is an alternative to Russia’s S-300, was also on display. Iran produced Bavar after Russia failed to fulfill a 2007 contract to deliver the S-300 system. However, Moscow has signaled that it could soon provide Iran with the advanced air defense system.

Former UN envoy to Yemen criticized exclusion of Ansarullah from political transition

Jamal Benomar, who has resigned reportedly under pressure from certain Persian Gulf countries, says it was agreed in the national dialogue conference in 20-13 and 20-14 that the government needed to be more inclusive, but that the government did exactly the contrary and excluded the Ansarullah movement from the process. He said it’s naive to think everything was going well in Yemen and that Ansarullah spoiled the transition. The Moroccan diplomat refused to confirm claims of alleged Iranian support for the Yemeni fighters, saying that he never saw officials from Tehran in Yemen.
