On Sunday, Yemeni Ansarullah movement (the Houthi shia Muslim rebels) supported by Yemeni Army units loyal to Supreme Political Council (SPC) in the nation's capital Sana’a, attacked a Saudi army position in Jizan province near Yemeni border.
Using artillery, the Yemenis demolished and disabled the Saudi base, doing enough damage to render the buldings useless. U-News agency has released a video recoding of the attack which is embedded below:
Saudi casualty numbers are not know known and are unlikely to be revealed in the future, as Saudi Arabia usually does not disclose much information regarding losses of its military (we must suppose they fear it will undermine their claim that Allah is on their side). This not the first successful raid by the Houthis and their allies on Saudi territory.

If Mocha is to be wrestled from the Saudi Armed Forces and aligned sattelite divisions, the Houthis will secure a vital bufferzone for Hudaydah, a major port city under a naval blockade.
