TEHRAN, Oct. 23 (MNA) – 25 Saudi elements have been killed and 35 others wounded in Ma'rib province during Yemeni army and popular committees attacks.

Yemeni army and popular committees continue their operations against Saudi mercenaries in Ma'rib province. Recently, Saudi mercenaries have tried to seize control of ‘Naja’ area in Ma'rib province.

According to the report, Saudi mercenaries are trying to take control of ‘Naja’ area in Ma'rib province while Yemeni forces have recently taken control of the area.

In this regard, the efforts of Saudi mercenaries affiliated with ousted and fugitive government of Mansur Hadi failed with the intervention of Yemeni forces.
