Yemeni Forces Fire Multiple Ballistic Missiles on Saudi Positions in Najran

The Yemeni Army and Ansarullah forces fired several missile, targeting a number of Saudi military positions near the northern border and in the kingdoms southern region of Najran.

Yemen’s army missile unit fired a number of Zilzal-1 ballistic missiles at the Saudi military posts in the Ajasher Desert of the Najran region on Tuesday, according to the country’s military media.

A number of the missiles managed to hit the intended targets along the border, resulting in several casualties on the side of Saudi Coalition forces, the media report added.

Yemen’s people have been under massive attacks by a coalition led by the Saudi regime for nearly four years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
