Yemeni Forces Wrest Control over 3 Saudi Bases in Jizan

The Yemeni army, backed by popular fighters, gained control over three Saudi military bases in the kingdom’s Jizan province as Riyadh resumes bombing the Arab country.

According to local reports, the Yemeni forces seized control over three Saudi military bases in the area of al-Jaberi in the Southwestern region on Sunday.

The reports added that Saudi troops abandoned their posts and ran for their lives.

The latest development came after Saudi airstrikes pounded residential areas in Sa’ada and Ma’rib provinces and claimed the lives of 15 people.

Yemeni tribal forces, backed by army units and Ansarullah fighters, have launched a series of new attacks on the Saudi border cities in retaliation for Saudi Arabia’s ongoing aggression against the impoverished Arab country.

The latest round of the Saudi aerial bombardments came after peace talks between various Yemeni political factions in the Swiss city of Geneva came to an end with no agreement.

In a press conference after the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva on Friday, delegates of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement slammed Riyadh for the intentional scuttling of the negotiations.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 89 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

People Stage Rally in Najran for Independence from Riyadh Gov’t

The Saudi people residing in the bordering town of Najran staged a rally to demand separation from Saudi Arabia.

“Since three months ago, our Yemeni brothers have been facing the bloody aggression of the Saudi army that does not spare any war crimes against the innocent and helpless Yemeni citizens,” activists present in the rally told FNA on Monday.

“The tribes and citizens in Najran are insisting on their decision for independence of this region to get rid of the Saudi Wahhabi-Takfiri regime’s hegemony and they have held rallies to this end and announced their readiness to confront the Saudi regime,” Hossein Ebrahim said.

He underlined that despite the global conspiracies against the innocent Saudi citizens in Najran, the revolution is still alive in this region.

Earlier this month, the tribal leaders in the border city of Najran said they detach from Saudi Arabia and join the Yemenis in their war on Saudi Arabia.

Sheikh Fouzi Akram, the leader of Yaam and Walad Abdullah tribes in Najran, told FNA that the city’s tribes have immediate plans for separation from the Central government in Riyadh.

“The Saudi army fires mortar shells and missiles at Najran region and then blames the Houthis of Yemen for it,” he said, adding that a number of tribes in Southern Najran have already had meetings with the Yemeni army on how to fight back at the Saudi army.

Sheikh Akram underlined that the Yemeni tribes’ demands for independence were raised after the Saudi regime’s savage aggression against Yemen and the presence of the Saudi military men in Najran.

“All Yemeni tribes are threatened by Saudi Arabia and we are ready for martyrdom for Allah’s cause,” he added.

His remarks came after the tribal people living in Najran in a statement earlier this month voiced opposition to Riyadh’s strikes on Yemen and declared war against the Saudi regime.

“The Najran tribes in a statement declared war against the occupying Saudi regime, stressing that the House of Saud represents corruption on the Earth and sheds the bloods of innocent people across the globe in a very routine and normal manner,” activist Abdulaziz Farid told FNA.

According to Farid, the statement also added that “the seditionist Saudi regime wants to turn the Najran region into the forefront of war against its brothers and neighbors and has used this region for artillery attacks against Yemen since the second week of the war” on the Yemeni people.

He underlined that the tribes in Najran will rise against the Saudi regime for its aggression against Yemen and will fight against the Saudi forces.

His remarks came after Saudi Minister of the National Guard Mutaib bin Abdullah sent gifts, worth several millions of Rials, to the Arab sheikhs in Najran in the Southeastern parts of the country to dissuade them from hosting and supporting Yemen’s Ansarullah movement.

Yemen’s Khabar news agency reported last week that Mutaib has paid 1mln Saudi rials (approximately 250,000 US dollar) to each tribal leaders and sheikhs in Najran along with an appreciation letter to keep them on Riyadh’s side.

The Saudi activists have released documents showing one-million-rial checks sent for Hossein Mahdi al-Haidar, Massoud Bin Mahdi al-Haidar, Sal Ibn Naji and others who are among the Nijran leaders.

The Najran tribes’ statement in opposition to using the region as a frontline to attack Yemen showed that their leaders have not accepted the checks.

Ansarullah Foils Terrorists’ Plot to Bomb Sana’a Grand Mosque

A senior Ansarullah leader disclosed that the revolutionary movement has foiled the terrorists’ bombing plot to destroy Sana’a Grand Mosque by several bomb-laden cars parked in front of it.

“The Ansarullah fighters have defused several bombs planted in a number of cars parked in front of Sana’a Grand Mosque,” Qassem Ahmad told FNA on Monday.

He, meantime, noted that Ansarullah has intelligence which indicates that pro-Hadi militants had cooperated with the ISIL in the recent bombing of Qobe al-Mehdi mosque which left three people dead and several others wounded.

On Sunday, Ansarullah forces shot down a surveillance drone sent by the Saudi army to spy on the bordering areas.

According to Yemenpost newspaper, Ansarullah targeted and destroyed the drone at the bordering region of Sahar.

There are yet no images of the downed drone and the Saudis have yet to show reaction to the report.
