The Saudi-led troops’ concentration centers and military positions in Ta’iz province’s al-Mukha region were hit by several Katyusha rockets which resulted in the death of a number Sudanese and UAE troops.
The Yemeni forces’ attacks came in response to the ongoing airstrikes by the Saudi-led fighter jets on civilians across Yemen.
In relevant remarks on Wednesday, informed military sources disclosed that the Yemeni army and popular forces had hunted down tens of Saudi-led forces in the Southern part of the kingdom over the past three months.
“At least 120 Saudi troops have been shot dead by snipers of the Yemeni army and Ansarullah in Jizan, Najran and Assir provinces in January, February and March,” the Arabic-language al-Massira TV network quoted an informed military source as saying.
The Yemeni snipers killed 74 Saudi-led troops in 22 military bases in Jizan, another 35 forces in nine military bases in Najran and another 10 Saudi-led troops in eight military bases in Assir province.
In a relevant development in late March, the Yemeni army and popular forces inflicted heavy losses on the Riyadh-led troops in an attack on their military base in the Southern part of the kingdom.
“A large number of the Saudi-led forces were killed and injured in the Yemeni forces’ attacks on al-Beit al-Aswad in Jizan province,” the Arabic-language media quoted an informed source as saying.
The source noted that al-Qavieh and al-Beit al-Abyaz military bases in Jizan province also came under Yemeni army attacks.
Also in late March, the official spokesman of the Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Sharq Luqman, underlined that the country is in possession of advanced missiles which can hit the Saudi capital.
“We have been able to develop our weapons and make progress so that they can hit the Saudi capital,” Luqman told al-Mayadeen news channel.
Noting that Borkan-2 missile was the first missile which could target King Salman airbase, he said that new missiles are underway.
Luqman said that after hitting Riyadh, the war in Yemen will enter a new stage and all equations will change.
Reports said earlier in March that Yemen’s popular forces and their allies in the country’s army fired a long-range ballistic missile at an airbase in the Saudi capital Riyadh, marking the second such attack on the city.
The Borkan-2 missile accurately struck King Salman Air Base.
In a statement carried by Yemen’s official Saba news agency, a Yemeni military official close to the Ansarullah group said the missile attack came in retaliation for the criminal Saudi war on Yemen.
Meanwhile, the Yemeni army pledged that missiles would target the Saudi territory until the regime’s bombing campaign stops.
It further announced that 108 ballistic missiles have been fired at positions held by Saudi invaders inside and outside Yemen so far.
Separately, Yemeni popular fighters targeted with a Zelzal-1 missile a gathering place of Saudi mercenaries in the al-Ramzah district in the kingdom’s Southwestern Jizan region.
They also launched a missile attack against positions held by the mercenaries in al-Maton district of Yemen’s Northern Jawf province.
