Washington, DC – The authoritative Lebanese news outlet Al-Manar is reporting that the Yemeni resistance scored a victory over the U.S.-backed Saudi military on June 1. The report states, “Dozens of Saudi soldiers were killed and scores were captured in an attack carried out by the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees on a Saudi camp in Asir region.”

Since late March, Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on the people of Yemen in order to block the progressive and national democratic group known as the Houthis. A large section of the Yemeni Army has also joined the resistance.

The U.S. government has stepped up weapons shipments to Saudi Arabia, is refueling Saudi aircraft, and is providing intelligence to the Saudi military.
