Houthis report capture of Saudi soldiers and officers

Yemen's Houthi movement has said it carried out an attack near the border with the southwestern Saudi region of Najran and captured several army officers, but there was no immediate confirmation from the authorities in Saudi Arabia, Al Jazeera reports.

A spokesman for the Yemen-based rebels said in a statement on Saturday that three "enemy military brigades had fallen" in the attack, which he said was launched 72 hours earlier in the vicinity of Najran and was supported by the group's drone, missile and air defence units.

Houthi-run Al Masirah TV quoted the spokesman as saying they captured "thousands" of enemy troops, including many officers and soldiers of the Saudi army, as well as "hundreds of armoured vehicles".
