Whistle-blower reveals terrible condition of Saudi forces on the border with Yemen

A famous Twitter account belonging to a former security officer in Saudi Arabia has revealed shocking details related to the life and conditions of the Saudi army forces on the southern border of the kingdom with Yemen.

The former security officer account wrote on Twitter that the Saudi soldiers on the southern border “suffer a lot, some of them are unable to pay the bills or rent a house.”

The account pointed out that some of the soldiers have reached the point that they cannot find food for their families and children in Saudi Arabia.

Well-informed Yemeni sources revealed to the Khaleej 24 website that three Saudi officers and soldiers and 13 Sudanese soldiers were killed in an attack by Ansarullah on the southern border of the kingdom.

The sources indicated that higher instructions were issued to the Saudi army to keep the losses resulting from Yemeni attacks a secret, out of fear of public reaction.

The instructions justified their decision by saying that “announcing losses in the ranks of the army would negatively affect the Kingdom’s position in efforts to reach a ceasefire agreement,” according to the sources.

The Saudi kingdom is reportedly hoping to reach an agreement that gets it out of the Yemeni quagmire it has been inundated in for nearly seven years.
