The Saudi Royal Army reportedly suffered heavy losses on Tuesday when the Yemeni Army’s missile battalion targeted the Jizan regional airbase in southern Saudi Arabia with a Type-1 Qahir ballistic missile.
According to both Al-Masirah and Al-Manar, the Saudi Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman paid a quick visit under very tight security measures to the Jizan Public Hospital to check the dead and wounded among his soldiers who were killed in the strike on the Airport earlier this week.
Bin Salman also visited a field hospital set up in the area after the Jizan Hospital was deemed incapable of receiving the large number of dead and wounded among the Saudi ranks.
The Jizan regional airport was turned into a military base for attacks after the start of the Saudi aggression against Yemen – all civil aviation was moved to Abha Airport.
Overland transport costs from Jizan to Abha are paid by the Saudi government.
Tuesday’s military operation was the third time in which Yemeni forces fired Qaher missiles at the airbase.
In a related development, the Yemeni army and Popular Committees killed scores of militants at the town of Midi in the Hajjah province.
The Yemeni media distributed images of destroyed Saudi vehicles and the the death of several Coalition soldiers.
