to avoid confrontation with invading Yemeni troops after the latter
pushed deep into the kingdom’s border city of Najran on Tuesday.

said the Yemeni soldiers have made huge, but easy gains in their battle
against the monarchy’s troops in Najran heights, forcing them to escape
the the battlefront in disordered fashion.
The reports added that the kingdom’s forces have deserted their posts in the region, retreating from their territories.
Dispatches said several attempts by ranking Saudi
commanders to rearrange the troops to form new frontlines miles back
deep into the Saudi territories have failed.
Two soldiers have told tribal settlers that they
have seen comrades shot in the back by senior officers to dissuade the
chaotic escape from the battlefield.
Most Saudi soldiers and low ranking officers are either from Yemeni tribes or from Yemeni descent.
Earlier today, the Yemeni troops warned off Saudi
soldiers as they approached to recapture Jizan’s military base that has
recently fell into the hands of Ansarullah popular fighters.

out an attack to gain control over a military base in al-Tawaliq
Mountain area, but were pushed back by the Yemeni fighters.

including 4 tanks was destroyed and the soldiers fled the battlefield
during the counterattack that ended up in complete fiasco.
Earlier, Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters seized control over al-Tawaliq military base during a retaliatory attack.  
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.
Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen in the last 76 days to bring its ally, fugitive president Mansour Hadi, back to power.
Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters along with army units gained control over a Saudi military base near the two countries’ borderline.
to Yemeni media reports, the Ansarullah forces supported by the army
soldiers took over Saudi Arabia’s al-Shorfa military base across the
Yemeni border town of Sa’ada after storming the region in a retaliation
The reports added that Saudi soldiers fled the region after the military base came under the heavy fire of the Yemeni troops.  
Two armored vehicles were also destroyed following the attack.
In a separate incidence, the popular fighters also managed to seize control of a military base in Jizan province.
James H. Fetzer, an American philosopher and political analyst, said the
Saudi regime is fighting the Yemenis due to its quest for democracy, as
establishment of a popular movement and government in the neighboring
country sets a bad example for the Saudis. [VIDEO]Democracy in Yemen Sets “Bad Example” for Authoritarian Arab Regimes
