Nearly dozen Sudanese mercenaries killed in fierce fighting with Yemeni forces

Nearly a dozen Sudanese soldiers have been killed as intense fighting between Saudi-led coalition forces and Takfiri militants on one side and Yemeni army troops and their allies on the other in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern region of Jizan.

Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network, citing military sources, reported that Yemeni soldiers and allied fighters from Popular Committees are advancing in the area and have taken control of multiple locations in the al-Huthirah district.

The sources said 10 Sudanese mercenaries were killed and at least 17 others injured in fresh fighting.  

Back in June 2019, then deputy chairman of Sudan’s Transitional Military Council (TMC) General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo said in a public address that as many as 30,000 Sudanese soldiers were fighting alongside Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen.

Sudanese forces, he said, were the biggest among the Saudi-led coalition.
