RIYADH: A Bahraini officer and soldier were killed in a Houthi attack along the border between war-torn Yemen and Saudi Arabia, Bahrain’s military said on Monday.
Those killed were stationed on the Saudi-Yemeni border as part of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, the military said.
A statement said “a number” of soldiers were wounded in the attack early on Monday.
“This treacherous terrorist act was carried out by the Houthis using drones to attack the positions of the Bahraini force stationed on Saudi Arabia’s southern border despite the cessation of military operations between parties to the war in Yemen,” the statement said.
A plane was sent with a medical crew to transport those killed and the wounded to Bahrain.
