Yemeni armed forces have fired a domestically-developed ballistic missile at a military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Asir, in retaliation for the regime’s campaign of military aggression, according to a report.
Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, citing an unnamed military official from the missile unit of the Yemeni army, reported that the military base had been hit with a short-range Badr-1 missile late on Wednesday, adding that the projectile had struck its target with precision.
The report added that the missile attack left an unspecified number of Saudi mercenaries either dead or wounded, and inflicted damage to the base and its equipment.
Meanwhile, al-Masirah said in a separate report that Yemeni forces killed a number of Saudi-led mercenaries west of a border crossing in Asir in rocket and mortar fire.
It added that the Yemeni forces also managed to retake at least eight strategic areas in the northernmost parts of the country’s Sa’ada province, which shares a border with Asir.
