Yemeni armed forces fired a domestically-developed ballistic missile at a military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Asir, in response to the Saudi-led coalition regime’s campaign , backed by the US.
According to a military official from the missile unit of the Yemeni army, reported that the military was hit with a short-range Badr-1 missile late on Wednesday, adding that the projectile had struck its target with precision.
The report added that the missile attack left an unspecified number of Saudi paid fighters either dead or wounded, and inflicted damage to the base and its equipment.
They also carried out ,on the same day, special operations west of Asir, whereas they regained important sites that were controlled by coalition’s paid fighters.
They launched a large-scale attack on the paid fighters’positions, regaining eight sites in Majazh Mountain.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
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.
