Yemeni forces target Saudi base in Najran region with ballistic missile
Yemeni army troops, backed by allied fighters from Popular Committees, have fired a domestically-manufactured ballistic missile at a military base in Saudi Arabia’s southern border region of Najran in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s devastating military campaign against their impoverished country.
Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, citing an unnamed military official, reported that Mostahadeth base had been targeted with a short-range Badr-1 missile late on Friday, adding that the projectile had hit the designated target with high precision.
The official said the missile strike killed and injured scores of Saudi troopers and Saudi-backed Yemeni militiamen loyal to former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi .
On Saturday, at least two Saudi soldiers were killed when Yemeni forces and their allies fatally shot them at Mashal base in the kingdom’s southwestern region of Jizan.
Furthermore, Yemeni soldiers and fighters from Popular Committees fired a salvo of artillery rounds at a position of Saudi mercenaries in the al-Boq region of Najran, leaving a large number of them dead or injured.
Separately, a civilian lost his life and three others sustained injuries when Saudi missiles and artillery rounds rained down on residential buildings in the Shada’a district of Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada.
Saudi warplanes also carried out more than 11 airstrikes against a village in the Hamdan district of Yemen’s western province of Sana’a. There were no immediate reports about possible casualties or the extent of damage caused.
