Yemen’s Ballistic Missile Hits zionist Saudi Military Base in Jizan Province

14 May 2016 13:57



The Yemeni army and popular forces pounded a Saudi military base in the kingdom’s Jizan province with ballistic missile on Saturday, inflicting heavy losses and casualties on them.

Yemen’s Qaher-I ballistic missile hit the Saudi military positions in Jizan province near the border with Yemen.

The Saudi forces sustained heavy losses in Yemen’s missile strike.

Earlier this week, the Yemeni army and their allies fired a ballistic missile at a Saudi military base in a “simple response” to Saudi airstrikes that continue despite a ceasefire.

Yemen’s army spokesman Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman said that the missile targeted a military base in the Southwestern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait.

Saudi Arabia claimed it intercepted the missile before it could cause any damage.

The attack came after Saudi warplanes targeted al-Amaleqa camp in the Harf Sufyan district of Amran Province on Monday, killing 13 people, including five paramedics, and injuring at least 15 others.

The attack jolted peace talks being held in Kuwait between Yemen’s popular forces and representatives of former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Luqman said while Yemen is still committed to the truce, it reserves “the right to respond” to Saudi attacks.

The army spokesman said Saudi Arabia has launched more than 94 air raids since the ceasefire began on April 11, killing or injuring dozens of people.

Each side accuses the other of not respecting the truce.

There has been mounting international pressure to bring an end to the Saudi war in Yemen, which has killed more than 9,600 people and displaced 2.8 million since March last year.
