Yemeni missile targets Saudi Aramco oil facility in Jizan


Yemeni Army and popular committees targeted Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facility in Jizan on Monday.

Yemeni resources announced that the successful attack was carried out using Badr 1 missiles.

Strike on Jizan took place two days after successful attack by the Yemeni forces on Saudi Arabia’s frigate in the province, which killed a number of Saudi military and mercenaries.

Yemeni Navy has announced that it has hit a Saudi Arabian frigate in Jizan coastlines in response to the killing of Yemeni fishermen in a recent Saudi-led air raid on fishing boats near the island of Akban in Yemen’s western province of Hudaydah.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of Hadi back to power and crushing the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Some 15,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
