Saudi troops repel Houthi border attack

KONFRONTASI-Saudi Arabia has repelled an infiltration attempt at its border by Yemeni Houthi fighters who also shelled two border areas in the kingdom, security sources have said.

Sources told Al Jazeera that Saudi ground troops clashed with Houthi rebels on Sunday in Najran and Jazan, as warplanes belonging to the Saudi-led coalition struck positions belonging to the Iranian-backed fighters along the Yemeni border.

Houthi rebels have fired rockets into Saudi Arabia a number of times, killing both members of the armed forces and civilians.
