Saudi Interior Ministry announced on Saturday, the death of a soldier, in a shooting between Saudi forces and Houthi militia, in Jazan city, at the Saudi-Yemeni border.
The incident took place on Saturday morning, as Saudi forces were responding to heavy shooting and projectile attacks, from the mountain areas in Yemen, the ministry said.
This was the latest Saudi soldier casualty, since the Saudi-led coalition launched a war against the Houthis in Yemen, in Mar, 2015.
Most of the deaths were caused by missile attacks, that also killed tens of Saudi civilians in border cities.
Meanwhile, thousands of Yemeni civilians lost their lives, in air strikes by the coalition, or direct clashes between the Houthi rebels and supporters of the Yemeni elected government.-
