Yemen Attacks Saudi Positions in Lahij with Tochka Missiles
Brigadier General Sharaf Qaleb Loqman, the spokesman of the Yemeni armed forces, made the announcement in an interview with Yemen’s official news agency on Thursday, adding that the Yemeni army and popular forces’ Tochka missiles hit a gathering of the Saudi forces at al-Anad military base in Lahij province.
Also earlier this month, a Yemeni Tochka missile hit the Saudi-led coalition’s command headquarter in Sha’ab al-Jen region near Bab al-Mandeb in Ta’iz province, and killed over 150 coalition servicemen, including 23 Saudi troops, 9 UAE officers and soldiers.
In a relevant development 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 on Tuesday.
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.
The ballistic missiles that have recently come into service in Yemen’s army have claimed a heavy toll on the Saudi side of the war. Only in the last one week, around 550 Saudi-led troops have been killed by these ballistic missiles.
