Al-Masirah news website reported that the missile was test-fired in action after it hit a military base in Saudi Arabia’s Najran province.
“The missile units of the army targeted Rajla military base in Saudi Arabia’s Southwestern border region of Najran with three Asif 1 missiles and the missiles precisely hit the target,” a Yemeni military source said.
In relevant remarks on Monday, 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 this month 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.
