Three Saudi troops have been killed at southern borders with Yemen, Saudi authorities said Sunday.
"Ahmed bin Yahiya Suleiman al-Ghazwani and Sultan bin Isa Shalabi have martyred in defense of religion and nation in Jazan," the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Taif governor and personnel of the Saudi armed forces and government have "served the Death Prayers for duty martyr Ibrahim Majrashi," who was killed at southern borders in Jazan," SPA added.
No further details have been given on the three troops' deaths by the official agency.
Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis had ousted the internationally-recognized government late in 2014.
The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi.
