Yemeni Missiles Target Saudi Bases in Najran, Jizan
The Yemeni army launched several rockets against the Saudi border city of Najran in retaliation for Riyadh’s ongoing airstrikes against the Arab country.
According to media reports, the Yemeni missiles and mortar shells targeted Saudi military bases in the Southwestern border city of Najran late on Friday, forcing the Saudi troops to abandon their posts and flee the area.
Additionally, the kingdom’s Jizan region was also hit by Yemeni rockets on Friday.
Yemeni tribal forces, backed by army units and Ansarullah fighters, have launched a series of new attacks on the Saudi border cities in retaliation for Saudi Arabia’s ongoing aggression against the impoverished Arab country.
In the latest round of Saudi airstrikes, at least one civilian was killed and four others injured in the Northwestern Sa’ada province. Saudi warplanes bombed a school and a medical center of al-Dhahir city in the province.
There are also reports of civilian casualties after several airstrikes hit the Gharban and Maran areas there.
The Saudi warplanes also conducted two raids in the Southern province of Aden.
Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen in the last 94 days to bring its ally, fugitive president Mansour Hadi, back to power.
The airstrikes have so far claimed the lives of more than 4,728 civilians, mostly women and children.
According to a recent report by Freedom House Foundation, most of the victims of the deadly Al Saud campaign are civilians, including a large number of women and children.
