But, the Sudanese government didn't comment on the report.

Yemen has been wracked by violence and chaos since 2014, when Shia Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including capital Sanaa. The statement came after Yemen's Houthi movement said it launched a drone strike on a facility belonging to the Saudi state energy company.

On Friday it suffered one of its heaviest losses when dozens of Sudanese soldiers were killed by the Houthis in an ambush, Yemeni military sources and rebels said. More than 10,000 Yemenis have died in the conflict and millions in the impoverished country have been pushed to the brink of starvation.

In September that year, Mohamed Hamdan Dagolo (known as "Hemeti"), commander of the Sudanese paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, admitted that about hundreds of Sudanese forces died in the Yemeni war since 2015. Iran denies arming the rebels.

Hearings over the issue are scheduled in the USA , and the European Union is considering what actions to take against the company. The company says it has been removing Zuckerberg's messages from the inboxes of various people for several years.

Drones operated by Yemeni revolutionary forces hit two targets in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, as part of retaliation for crimes committed by the Saudi-led aggression on the Arab impoverished country.

The Houthis a year ago unveiled the Qasef-1 drone, along with three other new types of drones used for surveillance and attack, claiming they were indigenously made.

Houthis claimed the attack on Twitter, saying the intended target of the attack was the Saudi defense ministry in Riyadh. While missile strikes against Riyadh are growing in frequency, the Houthis have more often targeted southern Saudi border cities and towns.
