Saudi Arabia often claims that it intercepts incoming Yemeni missiles, but a close study of evidence by The New York times in 2017 clearly suggested that in one of the most high-profile of such attacks, the projectile — launched deep into Saudi territory — had in fact landed unimpeded, bypassing American-made Patriot missiles and potentially other defenses used by Riyadh. Saudi Arabia claimed that it had foiled that attack, which targeted the Riyadh airport.

Video Footage released on late Saturday by the military media of the Yemeni army shows missile force firing a barrage of missiles on gatherings of Saudi army and its paid fighters in Jizan region.

In a separate contexts, Yemen’s Ministry of the Interior broadcasted a recorded voice message and photograph of Abu Abdullah al-Masri, the self-declared “Emir of al-Qaeda in Taiz”, after he was arrested by Yemeni forces days ago.

“The Emir of al-Qaeda in Taiz has made serious confessions about the organisation’s relationship with the Saudi-led coalition and the armed militias in the city of Taiz,” the Interior Ministry’s Security Information Center said.

Security services in Taiz province arrested the so-called Emir together with one of the leaders of the invading coalition’s armed paid fighters days ago in a qualitative security operation in the north-west of Taiz province.

Abu Abdullah al-Masri is known for his leadership in the city of Taiz since the beginning of the aggression, and is in direct coordination with the Saudi-UAE coalition leaders

He oversaw several al-Qaeda terrorist operations, including executions, floggings, assassinations and armed robberies against banks and shops.

On Friday, the Yemeni Security Media Center broadcasted a video confession of four al-Qaeda members arrested by security services in Al-Bayda province on March 13.

The video also showed the wreckage of a Saudi military pickup after being destroyed with an improvised explosive device in the eastern part of Nar Mountain.

The Yemeni security services on Sunday arrested one of the most dangerous elements of al-Qaeda in Taiz province.The arrested was accused of committing a number of crimes and bombing of shrines, mosques and Islamic monuments in the province.

Farhan, one of al-Qaeda cell member in Taiz city, revealed that Islah Islamic political party (Muslim Brotherhood) and Saudi-backed exiled Hadi’s authorities have strong relations with al-Qaeda organization in Yemeni southern provinces.

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.

However, Saudi Arabia relies heavily on the US in its brutal war on Yemen. Washington has deployed a commando force on the Arab kingdom’s border with Yemen to help destroy arms belonging to Yemen’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement. Washington has also provided logistical support and aerial refueling.
