Forces of the Yemeni army and the Popular Committees launched on Tuesday a Scud missile at a missile base in Saudi Arabia, state-run news agency Saba quoted the military’s spokesman as saying.
“The missile units of our heroic armed forces launched today a Scud missile at the Al Sulayyil missile base in Riyadh province … it comes as a response to the crimes of the brutal Saudi aggression,” Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman said.
“The missile hit its target directly with high accuracy,” he added.
Luqman indicated that the missile came in response to the duplicated Saudi treacherous attacks against Yemen which are targeting everything that moves on ground.
The military official recalled the attack by the army and the Committees on the Saudi Khaled Bin Abdul-Aziz airbase in Khamis-Msheit, during which a number of Saudi, Israeli and US commanders were killed, stating that it was a message to the Saudi-led aggressors to stop their oppression against the Yemeni people.
“However, they didn’t indicate it any interest,” he said.
“For this reason, the missile units of our heroic armed forces fired a Scud missile today on Al Sulayyil missile base in Al-Dawaser valley in the province of Riyadh,” Luqman went on to say in a statement.
He stressed that “the rocket launch is another message to the arrogant states perhaps they may learn the lesson.”
“We have lots of surprises in the coming days,” he promised.
Yemen has been under brutal aggression by Saudi-US coalition since Saudi Arabia launched a wide military campaign against its southern neighbor on March 26 without a UN mandate.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 2,600 people have lost their lives during the conflict in Yemen till June 14, with the vast majority of them were civilians.
