Two Saudi border guards die in Yemen shelling

Two Saudi border guards die in Yemen shelling

RIYADH: Two Saudi border guards have been killed and five others wounded by shellfire on the frontier with Yemen, official media reported.
The deaths occurred when “military missiles from Yemen” struck their position at Zahran South in the Asir border region on Wednesday, Riyadh’s interior ministry said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.
The two dead guards bring to at least 30 the number of people, military and civilian, killed in the Saudi border area since a Riyadh-led coalition began air strikes against Iran-backed Huthi rebels in Yemen in late March.
Coalition warplanes have been bombing Huthis and their allies in support of pro-government forces in Yemen.
The air campaign led to deadly skirmishes between the rebels and Saudi forces along the border, but many of the recent Saudi casualties have been civilians killed by cross-border barrages.
