The first group of National Guard troops has been deployed at the Yemen border to support the Kingdom’s armed forces in their campaign against the Houthi militia.

They will join members of the Border Guard and the army who have reinforced the frontier since March 26 when the coalition began airstrikes against Houthi forces and their allies.

National Guard troops “have arrived in Najran region to bolster the defense of the southern borders… so as to confront any possible threats,” SPA said.

Custodian of Two Holy Mosques King Salman announced on April 21 the National Guard’s mobilization, just hours before the coalition declared an end to its air campaign dubbed “Operation Decisive Storm.”
