Recent reports on clashes in Yemeni regions bordering Saudi Arabia were "inaccurate," Saudi Defense Ministry adviser Brig. Gen. Ahmed Asiri told Sputnik on Thursday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, a Yemeni military source told Sputnik that clashes were ongoing in the provinces of Marib, Al Jowf and Taiz, while the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes continue in the provinces of Sana'a, Al Jawf and Taiz. The source claimed that several districts in Yemen's Hajjah province near the Saudi-Yemeni border had seen artillery and rocket fire from Saudi Arabia.

"We stick to achieving success in negotiations, the ceasefire regime and continuous control over its observance, so I think that the information [on clashes near the Saudi border] is inaccurate," Asiri said in answer to a question on whether the reports on clashes in Yemen's Hajjah province were valid.

Since 2014, Yemen has been engulfed in a military conflict between the government headed by President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and Houthi rebels supported by army units loyal to former Yemeni leader Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Since March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf countries has been carrying out airstrikes against the Houthis at Hadi's request.
