The Yemeni army, backed by Popular Committees loyal to the Houthi Ansarullah movement, has hit a military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border city of Najran with a ballistic missile.

Yemen’s al-Masirah news channel reported on Sunday that the Qaher 1 missile caused huge explosions by hitting armories of the base, located in the al-Arissah district of Najran.

Yemeni forces also launched missile attacks on a convoy of Saudi mercenaries moving from Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib to the northern province of Jawf. Three vehicles were destroyed in the attacks.

Military forces of Yemen also fired over 80 Katyusha rockets at Saudi bases in Najran in retaliation for Riyadh’s incessant strikes against Yemen.

Dozens of mercenaries fighting for the regime in Riyadh were killed after Yemeni fighters fired missiles at a presidential palace in Ma’rib and the al-Amri district of the southwestern province of Taez.

According to the latest reports, heavy clashes continue between Ansarullah fighters and Saudi-backed militants loyal to the fugitive former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, in the Dhubab district of Taez.

Similar clashes are underway in the northeastern part of the Yemeni capital, Sana’a.

In a separate development on Sunday, Saudi warplanes repeatedly bombarded Yemen’s border regions. The jets also pounded the Kataf district in the northern province of Sa’ada.

Yemen has been under military attacks by Saudi Arabia since late March. More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since March.

The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools and factories.
