Yemen rockets hit Jizan, Najran in Saudi Arabia


The Yemeni army, backed by popular committee forces, has launched tens of rockets towards Saudi Arabia’s southwestern cities of Jizan and Najran.

The attacks, which targeted several camps and military bases in the two cities on Friday night, were carried out in response to Riyadh’s unabated military campaign against the Yemeni people.

No report has yet been released on the possible casualties of the retaliatory attacks.

At least 30 Saudis have been killed since the Yemenis started their rocket and mortar raids on Saudi border areas in early May. Several tanks and armored vehicles belonging to the Saudi army have been destroyed in the offensives.

The developments come as the Saudi military presses ahead with its aerial raids that started on March 26.

The Saudi aggression is aimed at undermining Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement, who are in control of Sana’a and other major provinces, and bringing back to power the former pro-Riyadh government led by the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The United Nation says at least 2,300 people have been killed and 7,330 injured due to the conflict in the Arabian Peninsula country since March 19.
