Yemeni Missiles Destroy Several Saudi Military Bases in Jizan



The Yemeni army and the popular forces destroyed several strategic military bases in the province of Jizan in Southwestern Saudi Arabia with missiles and mortar shells.

The army and Ansarullah forces in retaliatory attacks fired over 70 missiles and mortar shells at al-Qarn, Mohata al-Bayza, al-Mashih and al-Radif military bases in Jizan province, destroying them to a large degree.

The Yemeni sources announced that all of the four Saudi military bases caught fire after they were pounded.

On Tuesday, Yemen’s army and Ansarullah fighters killed at least six Saudi troops in a mortar attack on Jizan.

Six military vehicles were also destroyed in the retaliatory attack on Tuesday, according to the Yemeni Defense Ministry.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 182 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,201 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
