Source: 50,000 Yemeni Forces Preparing to Attack S. Arabia
“50,000 Yemeni forces are ready to attack positions in Saudi Arabia and liberate the biggest cities in Jizan and Asir regions within the framework of the first stage of strategic options,” a military source said on Wednesday.
His remarks came after the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted a strategic military base in Saudi Arabia’s Asir province with another Qaher-I ballistic missile on Wednesday.
The missile precisely hit its target in Al-Faisal military base in Khamis Mushait region of Asir province.
Qaher-I is an updated version of a Russian-made surface-to-surface missile.
The ballistic missiles that have recently come into service in Yemen’s army have claimed a heavy toll from the Saudi side of the war. Only in the last one week, around 550 Saudi-led troops have been killed by these ballistic missiles
On Tuesday, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces suffered another devastating blow when two Qaher-I ballistic missiles hit their military bases in the province of Ma’rib and the border region of Tawwal, and killed over 200 troops, including Saudi, UAE, British and US officers.
“A Qaher-I ballistic missile of Yemen struck al-Safer military base in Ma’rib province, killing over 137 Saudi-led aggressors, including a large number of Saudi and Sudanese troops, five UAE officers, head of the operations room (in Safer military base) and foreign military experts who seemed to be American and British,” a Yemeni source told FNA.
The source noted that bodies of the Saudi-led troops killed in Al-Safer region were completely burnt.
He added that another Yemeni missile targeted Saudi Arabia’s Tawwal military base in the border region in Jizan province, killing at least 70 Saudi-led troops and injuring over 100 others.
