Saudi forces clashed on Monday with support of Apache planes with tribal gunmen in Al-Mahra governorate, eastern Yemen, and wounded one person in the tribal ranks.

Local sources said that the clashes erupted between a Saudi military convoy supported by Yemeni military vehicle and between two tribes in the Fujit junction, the link between the two districts of Hat and North Mahrah.

The sources pointed out that the clashes took place after the tribes prevented the Saudi forces from heading to the Shihen border crossing with the Sultanate of Oman.

The border port has been in tension since Sonnday after the Saudi administration prevented the port administration from entering goods.

According to the sources, the clashes coincided with an intensive hovering of Saudi Apache helicopters over the area.

It is noteworthy that the Shehen Al-Buryan and Surfeet crossings and Nashtoon port and the Al-Ghaida airport in Mahrah governorate are all under the administration of the coalition forces. The latter was prevented from entering all-wheel drive vehicles, communications equipment, and equipment and equipment for possible military use by Ansar Allah group (Houthis).

Since last year, the popular demonstrations in Mahrah, which reject the Saudi presence, have not stopped in any way.
