A ballistic missile lands amid the coalition in Nehm
The missile forces of the Yemeni army forces on Friday fired a short-range ballistic missile on gatherings of the Saudi-led coalition ,backed by the US, in Nehm district of Sana’a province, a military official told YemeneExtra.
The missile targeted the artillery’s sites of the paid fighters at the down part of Fardat Nihem, the official said.
The official confirmed that the missile hit its target accurately, leaving deaths and injuries amid their ranks in addition to causing big destruction to the military equipment.
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.
