Saudi Arabia’s Apache helicopters killed dozens of Houthi militias and Republican Guard officers – who are loyal to deposed President Ali Abdullah Saleh – in targeted air strikes on Thursday at the border near the southwestern Saudi province of Jazan.

Saudi forces also repelled an attack by militias off the Yemeni border, an Al Arabiya News correspondent reported, which targeted Asir region, south of Makkah.

The Apache attacks come after a Houthi rocket landed on Wednesday in Jazan and injured a Yemeni resident in al-Tawal village.
