The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters pounded the Saudi military bases in the Southwestern city of Jizan with tens of missiles in retaliation for the kingdom’s continued airstrikes on the Arab country.
The Yemeni military troops fired 70 missiles into the Southwestern city of Jizan on Sunday, targeting several military bases.
The raid was carried out in response to continued Saudi airstrikes on Yemen’s residential areas.
The latest round of Saudi aerial bombardments came after peace talks between various Yemeni political factions in the Swiss city of Geneva came to an end with no agreement.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 88 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
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.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 4,688 civilians, mostly women and children.
