Dozens of Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to Yemen's former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi lost their lives when Yemeni Army soldiers and fighters from allied Popular Committees launched strikes against their position in the country’s southern province of Lahij.

Local officials and medical sources said Yemeni troops and their allies carried out several attacks using armed drones and ballistic missiles on the Al-Anad military base, which is the largest base in the war-wracked country, on Sunday, according to Press TV.

They said at least 30 Saudi-backed militants were killed and more than 50 others wounded as a result.

At least three civilians lost their lives when Saudi border guards launched barrages of artillery rounds at two separate residential areas in Yemens mountainous northwestern province of Saada.

Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Arabic-language Al-Masirah television network that a civilian was killed when projectiles fired by Saudi military forces slammed into the Shada'a district of the province on Saturday.

Saudi troops also pounded Raqou area in the Monabbih district of the same Yemeni province, leaving two civilians dead.
