Yemeni Drone Strikes Military Position in Saudi Arabia
The Yemeni army forces announced that they have managed to target a military gathering of the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the US, with a Qasef K2 drone.
During an attack by a Yemeni drone of Qasef K2 type, a number of forces of the coalition were killed and wounded.
According to Yemeni sources, the military position in Saudi Arabia Southwestern province of Aseer was hit by a suicide drone of the Yemeni army forces.
The sources added that the operation was carried out after a series of thorough intelligence and reconnaissance operations.
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.
