Saudi Forces Reported to Have Carried Out Attack in Yemen

Houthi rebels reported today that Saudi forces launched an attack against Houthi forces in Yemeni territory. An Al Jazeera reporter said that the attack could have been a rescue operation for Saudi fighters the Houthi alleged that they captured.

The Saudis deny fighting on Yemeni territory and claim that Iran is providing support for the Houthi rebels and that this is helping the Al Qaeda presence in Yemen. The Houthi claim that Saudi forces have not only crossed into Yemen, but that Saudi Arabia is allowing Yemeni forces to fight from its territory.
