According to al-Akhbar newspaper, the Saudi spy agency has started hiring the terrorist groups operating in Southern Syria following the recent advances of the Yemeni army in the bordering areas and in Jizzan, Najran and Asir provinces.
Security sources in Southern Syria told the Lebanese daily that the Saudi spy agency is hiring 3,000 to 4,000 terrorists in the region to transfer them to the Saudi-Yemeni border regions to fight against the Abdullah Saleh and Ansarullah forces.
They added that Jordan and Saudi Arabia have resumed training for the terrorists stationed in Southern Syria since late August. The training is done in the Jordanian army bases in Northern Jordan and the Saudi bases at the two regions of Arar and Hafr al-Baten in the Northeastern parts of Saudi Arabia, according to the sources.
Reports said on Monday that the Saudi National Guard troops arrived in the province of Najran to secure the Kingdom’s borders against Yemen’s retaliatory attacks after Riyadh killed hundreds of civilians in airstrikes on Sana’a two days ago.
Saudi Arabia’s al-Akhbariah news channel broadcasted the footages of military equipment sent to the country’s forces in Najran, and reported that fresh military units of the Saudi National Guard have arrived in the province.
“These forces are equipped with state-of-the-art weapons and they have been sent to support the Saudi border guards,” it added.
Reports from Yemen’s capital said on Saturday that over 900 people were killed or wounded in massive air raids by the Saudi-led coalition warplanes.
The airstrikes targeted a hall where people were paying their last respects to the father of Yemen’s Interior Minister Jalal Al-Rouyshan who is also the chief of staff of former President Ali Abdullah Salih.
A second strike hit exactly the same region as people rushed to aid those injured in the first round of air assault.
Also, the Saudi warplanes staged massive airstrikes on a ceremony on the house of Sheikh Abu Shwareb, inflicting tens of casualties on the civilians who had gathered for a ceremony at his residence.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 11,300 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster.
