Saudis at war with al Qaeda?

Washington Post:
War in Yemen takes a major turn with offensive against al-Qaeda

Saudi-backed forces appeared to mount a large-scale offensive to drive militants aligned with the militant group from their strongholds in the country’s south.
Up until now the Saudi war with al Qaeda has been mainly a defensive internal operation.  By attacking al Qaeda in Yemen the Saudis are finally engaged in an offensive operation outside of their on sand.  It appears to be a needed move, because if al Qaeda did establish a base in Yemen it would become one for attacks on the Saudi homeland.
