Alwaght- Yemeni forces have arrested 101 Saudi soldiers in the war-torn country's Ma'rib province, killing dozens others.
The Yemeni army, backed by Ansarullah movement forces, captured 71 Saudi forces on Monday while trying to reach Ma’rib city, Yemen's Arabic-language al-Masirah news website reported, adding that they had caught 30 more Saudi troopers in the same area on Sunday.
The report added that the captured soldiers were being transported to the area to further boost Saudi presence when Yemeni forces caught them.
Yemenis also killed dozens more of Riyadh’s troops in the west of the city and destroyed four of their military vehicles, it added.
Elsewhere in the province, Yemenis also targeted the Saudi-held Sahn al-Jin military base with missiles and managed to kill dozens others.
Yemenis carry out these attacks in retaliation for Saudi-led coalition's aggression, launched 11 months ago to restore the country’s fugitive former president to power.
Saudi warplanes have dropped toxic smoke bombs on the Yemeni province of Mar'rib.
According to Yemeni news agency Saba, theSaudi-led coalition's Sunday raids targeted al-Masaryiah village, al-Rabeia’h area and a brick factory in Serwah.
“The aggression war jets dropped toxic smoke bombs on some areas in Serwah,” a local official said.
Elsewhere the Saudi aggression pounded on Sunday some districts of Sa’ada province with tens of rockets and artillery shells, a security official said.
The official explained to Saba that the Saudi Apache helicopters bombed al-Qama and al-Makhroq areas with more than 30 missiles, in addition to the artillery bombing on the two areas, which led to large destruction in citizens’ houses and property.
There were no immediate reports of possible casualties of the Sunday air raids.
Since the beginning of the deadly campaign of the Riyadh regime in March 2015, Saudi Arabia has claimed that its attacks are meant to hit members of the Ansarullah movement.
Nearly 8,500 people, among them over 2,300 children, have been killed and almost 16,100 others injured since the onset of the aggression. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, factories and mosques.
