SHABWA, Dec. 27 (Saba) – The army and popular committees repulsed on Tuesday an attempt of Saudi-paid mercenaries to advance towards Osailan district of Shabwa province, a military official to Saba.

Dozens of Saudi-paid mercenaries were killed or injured in the foiled attempt, he said.

The army and popular committees repelled Saudi-paid mercenaries towards al-Saq and Wahid Ben Aqeel sites in Osailan under an intense air cover of the US-Saudi aggression warplanes, the official added.

Around 18 Saudi-paid mercenaries were killed and dozens others were injured in the military clashes, including two mercenaries' leaders Saleh Mohammed Merjan and Mansour Abdu-Rabu al-Mansori, he said.

Meanwhile, the US-Saudi aggression warplanes have waged a series of air raids on Osailan and Baihan districts to back mercenaries in the two districts, the official added.
