Yemen Border Strikes Kill Two Saudis, Yemen Death Toll Near 2,000: WHO

An Interior Ministry spokesman said late on Wednesday, Two Saudi border guards were killed and five wounded by shells fired from Yemeni territories, as the United Nations said the war's death toll was close to 2,000. Saudi forces and the Houthis have been trading fire across the border since an Arab alliance began military operations against the Iranian-backed Shi'ite group in March to try to restore exiled President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power. The Saudi-led coalition says it began their campaign heeding a call by Hadi after the Houthis started advancing south towards the port city of Aden, where the president was based.
