Saudi Arabia dismisses Hadi-affiliated military commanders

Saudi Arabia intends to dismiss commanders affiliated with the Islah Party and the puppet government led by Abdrabbuh Hadi in the southern border regions of the Kingdom, Yemen Press Agency reported on Wednesday citing well-informed sources.

The sources said that the Saudi forces began dismissing prominent military leaders from the military brigades of the so-called Sixth Military Region, which were withdrawn from the border area.

Major General Dhawi al-Ghazwani, commander of the Najran Force of the Royal Land Forces, has also excluded military leaders from the First Brigade Border Guards, which is affiliated with the Islah Party, and appointed new commanders to replace them, according to the sources.

The sources added that the Saudi commander directed, several weeks ago, the dismissal of Jamil al-Ma’alim, the chief of staff of the aforementioned brigade, against the background of the defeat of his forces on 16 December 2021 during the battles against Yemeni army forces in the villages of Kuhal and Afa in the Al-Yatama desert of Jawf province.
