Yemenis pound Saudi military base with 2 ballistic missiles
Yemen’s army has reportedly carried out two ballistic missile attacks against a military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Asir region.
The missiles hit the King Khalid air base in the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait in Asir region late on Sunday.
The possible death toll and the extent of the damage inflicted upon Saudi troops and the military base in the Monday attacks were not yet released.
Yemenis launch such attacks in retaliation against an unabated aggression by the Saudis.
The country has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March last year in a bid to bring the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a Riyadh ally, back to power.
Over 8,270 people, among them 2,236 children, have been killed and 16,015 others injured since the onset of the aggression. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
