The Yemeni army and Ansarullah popular forces announced that they have managed to target a military gathering of the Saudi-Emirati coalition with a Qasef K2 drone.
During an attack by a Yemeni drone of Qasef K2 type, a number of forces of the Saudi-Emirati coalition were killed and wounded.
According to Yemeni sources, the military position in Saudi Arabia Southwestern province of Aseer was hit by a suicide drone of the Yemeni army and Ansarullah popular forces.
The sources added that the operation was carried out after a series of thorough intelligence and reconnaissance operations.
Saudi Arabia and its allies, including the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan, launched a brutal war against Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
The aggression initially consisted of a bombing campaign but was later coupled with a naval blockade and the deployment of ground forces to Yemen. Around 20,000 people have died since the war began, says Yemen’s Health Ministry.
The Saudi-led war has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. The United Nations (UN) has said that a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in dire need of food, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has driven the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, as Saudi Arabia’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.
