The Houthis repelled on September 14 a large-scale attack by the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies on their positons in the strategic al-Tuwal border crossing in the northern part of the Yemeni province of Hajjah.
According to the Yemeni group’s media wing, Saudi-backed forces attacked the crossing from three directions. However, Houthi fighters were able to repel the attack after several hours of heavy clashes.
Several Saudi-backed fighters were killed or injured in the failed attack. The bodies of at least two Saudi-backed fighters that were abandoned by their comrades, can be seen in a video released by the Houthis.
In the last few months, Saudi-led coalition and its proxies suffered from heavy losses as a result of the continues battles on the border with Yemen. Saudi media sources revealed that eight Saudi service members were killed in the region in the last 48 hours only.
