The Saudi army imposed a tight sea blockade on northern Yemen to corner Shiite fighters in the country. According to Saudi sources, the no-go zone is 10 kilometers wide along the Yemeni border and thousands of Saudi troops were deployed for carrying out this mission.
Meanwhile, Assistant Minister of Defense for Security Affairs Prince Khaled Bin Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz said Tuesday that the Saudi forces will continue their airstrikes against the Shiite infiltrators until they move back from the Saudi frontier. We are not going to stop the bombing until the infiltrators retreat tens of kilometers inside their border, Prince Khaled said on a visit to Saudi troops in southwestern Jizan province.
