Yemeni army forces respond after over 150 airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition
The Yemeni army force on Tuesday fired three missiles of Zilzal-1 type toward sites of Saudi-led coalition , backed by the US, paid fighters in Dhale province and in Aisr and Najran regions, a military official told YemenExtra.
The first missile was fired on Halm Camp in Naqil al-Khashaba area in Dhale, and the second on a group of the coalition troops and vehicles at Qais Mountain in Najran, while the third targeted gatherings of Saudi army forces in Wa’ou area of Asir.
The official confirmed that the third missile hit the targets, causing human and material losses to the coalition.
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 60,000 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.
