Yemeni Army, Ansarullah Seize Saudi Strategic Military Base
The Yemeni army and popular forces targeted Saudi Arabia’s border regions, including al-Khoba, with missiles and artillery shells and took control of a strategic military base in retaliation for the Riyadh government’s ongoing aggression against their country’s civilian population.
“The Yemeni forces captured Saudi Arabia’s Wadi al-Jarah military base in Al-Khobe of Jizan province,” a Yemeni military source said.
On Friday, the Yemeni army and popular forces hit Najran border command center with missiles.
“The Yemeni popular forces pounded Saudi Arabia’s al-Qaem Military Center with 11 missiles and they also fired 6 missiles at Jalah military center,” a local source announced on Friday.
The Najran Border Guards Command Center and its intelligence office as well as Alab military base in Dhahran also came under the attacks of Ansarullah’s missile and artillery fires.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 129 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,329 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Ansarullah fighters and army troops have made major advances in their fight against the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists and forces loyal to fugitive former President Mansour Hadi across Yemen in recent weeks.
