Houthi rebels claim mass capture of Saudi troops
"Houthi rebels in Yemen say they have captured a large number of Saudi troops after a major attack near the border between the two countries.
A Houthi spokesman told the BBC that three brigades had surrendered near the Saudi town of Najran.
He said thousands of soldiers had been captured and many others killed. Saudi officials have not confirmed the claim.
The operation was the largest of its kind since the conflict began, the spokesman said.
Colonel Yahiya said Saudi forces had suffered "huge losses in life and machinery".
All those captured would be paraded on the Houthi-run Al Masirah TV network on Sunday, he added.

"Yemen's Houthi movement has said it carried out an attack near the border with the southwestern Saudi region of Najran and captured "thousands" of enemy troops including several Saudi army officers but there was no immediate confirmation from the authorities in Saudi Arabia.
A spokesman for the Yemen-based rebels said in a statement on Saturday that three "enemy military brigades had fallen" in the attack, which he said was launched 72 hours earlier in the vicinity of Najran and was supported by the group's drone, missile and air defence units.
Houthi-run Almasirah TV quoted the spokesman as saying they captured "thousands" of enemy troops, including many officers and soldiers of the Saudi army, as well as "hundreds of armoured vehicles".
The Houthi military spokesperson said the operation reveals to Saudi Arabia that the Yemeni fighters are capable of further penetrating into Saudi: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/09/houthis-claim-capture-thousands-saudi-troops-attack-190928144722091.html
