(MENAFN - Arab News) Border Guards in the Addayer area of Jazan foiled an attempt to smuggle firearms and ammunition through Saudi-Yemeni borders, but were unable to catch the smugglers, who fled toward Yemen's borders



"They left what they were carrying and fled back to where they came from," said Gen. Abdulaziz Al-Subhi, Jazan's Border Guard commander.
