Yemeni Zalzal-II Missile Hits Saudi-Backed Terrorists in Ma’arib
The Saudi-backed militias’ military positions in Hareeb region in Ma’arib province were hit by Zalzal-II missiles in reaction to Saudi Arabia’s continued airstrikes on the Yemeni civilians.
Several pro-Saudi mercenaries were killed and wounded in the Yemeni attacks.
In a relevant development on Wednesday, the Yemeni army and popular forces continued their advances against the Saudi-backed militias in Ta’iz province, and seized back a strategic mountain and its surrounding hilltops.
The Yemeni forces are now in full control of al-Ravi mountain and several of its surrounding hilltops in al-Waziyeh region in Ta’iz province.
The Yemeni army and popular forces, meantime, pounded Nour Ein military base near al-Khazra border crossing with Katyusha rockets.

Also on Tuesday, the Saudi-led forces sustained heavy losses in the Yemeni army’s missile attacks on their military positions in the Red Sea island.
“The Yemeni army targeted and pounded the Saudi-led military training center with a ballistic missile Zuqar Island in the Red Sea, killing at least 80 Saudi and UAE soldiers and officers,” the Arabic-language media outlets quoted an unnamed Yemeni military source as saying.
The source noted that the Saudi-led forces’ military hardware also sustained heavy losses in Yemen’s missile attacks.
“Saudi Arabia and the UAE are using Zuqar Island for training the Saudi-led forces and sending them through Saudi land borders to Yemen,” he added.
The source noted that Saudi-hired mercenaries could also be seen among the fatalities in Zuqar Island.
Also on Tuesday, Yemen’s army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship with 176 crews and naval forces in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait, the 11th Saudi vessel sinking offshore Yemen.
The Saudi warship dubbed as ‘Al-Madina’ was targeted by Yemeni missiles in the Al-Mukha coastal waters in the province of Ta’iz.
The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets at residential areas in Ta’iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.
