Ballistic missile, Badr1, hits Jizan Airport




Yemeni army forces have fired a domestically-designed and -developed ballistic missile at a strategic economic target in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Jizan in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s devastating military campaign against their impoverished country.

The missile force of the Yemeni army forces , today, fired a ballistic missile, Badr1, at Jizan airport,also known as King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Airport, a source in the missile force told YemenExtra.

It also launched a short-range missile at a gathering of the coalition’s paid fighters ,loyal to former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, in an area of the country’s western coastal province of Hodeidah.

Targeting Jizan airport came in less than a day after the military completion of the Yemeni Air Force, bombing Aramco’s refinery in the Saudi capital of Riyadh by a long-range drone, Sammad 2.

The missile forces launched last Tuesday, a ballistic missile, Badr1, on the economic city in Jizan.

For its part, Saudi authorities shut an international airport in Jizan province after the Yemeni missile attack, Saudi officials familiar with the issue said.

Also today, eight people lost their lives and five others, including women and children, sustained injuries when the coalition warplanes conducted an airstrike against a house in the al-Seifi area of Sahar district in Yemen’s mountainous northwestern province of Sa’ada.

The coalition has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. It has so far killed at least 16,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

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 the coalition’s deadly campaign prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country.

Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with more than 22 million people in need and is seeing a spike in needs, fuelled by ongoing conflict, a collapsing economy and diminished social services and livelihoods.
