Up to 15 Houthis were killed in an operation launched by the Saudi forces on Saturday inside the border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen, according to al-Arabiya English.

This operation was conducted after the infiltration of Houthi terrorists and ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh's Guards into the shared borders.

Meanwhile, Yemeni army attacked militias’ posts in camp Khalid bin al-Walid near Mokha after imposing a tight siege from different directions.

Army forces, aided by the Saudi-led coalition’s air force, approached the camp near al-Nujyaba area and advanced in the area of al-Asfourya after fighting fierce battles against the terrorists.

A military source said the fighting inflicted heavy losses on several Houthi terrorists and fighters affiliated with ousted President Saleh.

He added that during the operation the Saudi forces destroyed military vehicles and seized many weapons.

It was reported on Sunday that Yemen's Shiite Houthis had fired on Saturday a new long-range ballistic missile and struck oil refineries in Saudi Arabia's Yanbu.
