Yemeni Forces Fire Ballistic Missile on Saudi Air Defense Camp in Najran
Yemen’s Rocketry Force fired ballistic missile on a Saudi air defense camp in Najran, the third such launch since the start of 2018.
Al-Massirah TV quoted a source in the Rocketry Force as saying that a short-range ballistic missile had accurately hit the Saudi air defense cap in Najran, inflicting losses upon Saudi-led forces.
The source said that the missile launch is the third attack on Saudi posts since the beginning of 2018. On January 5, the Rocketry Force had successfully test-fired a new short-range ballistic missile that targeted a Saudi post also in Najran.
The second missile launch took place late Tuesday, when the Rocketry Force fired a short-range ballistic missile on Saudi regional airport of Jizan, Al-Massirah reported, according to the source.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition which launched the campaign in a bid to restore power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
However, the allied forces of the Yemeni Army and popular committees established by Ansarullah revolutionaries have been heroically confronting the aggression with all means, inflicting huge losses upon Saudi-led forces.
The Saudi-led coalition – which also includes UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and Kuwait – has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of the aggression.
