Yemeni drones strike Patriot System in Najran Airport
Air Force of the Yemeni army forces ,Thursday, carried out a new attack by Qasef K2 combat drone on Najran Regional Airport for the third time in 72 hours.
A military source told YemenExtra that the operation has targeted the “Patriot system” at the airport, confirming that the operation hit its target accurately, after accurate intelligence monitoring.
On Wednesday morning, the Air force carried out an attack by Qasef K2 combat drone that targeting hangars housing the saudi’s warplanes.
A day earlier, the Air Force had launched a counterattack on an arms depot inside the same airport, using a Qasef K2 combat drone. The strike caused a fire at the airport.
Ansarullah warned on Sunday that those strikes were the start of operations against 300 vital targets in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as well as positions inside Yemen, where the foreign aggressors and their paid fighters hold bases.
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.
