And 10 violations on the Al-Jawf fronts, and one in the Al-Malahiz front, southwest of Saada.
The statement explained that the violations varied between infiltration attempts by armed Houthi groups towards sites in the al-Ayrif front south of Marib, two attempts to infiltrate towards military sites west of Hajjah, and an attempt to infiltrate south of Al-Jarrahi in Hodeidah, all of which were thwarted by the army.
