DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:55 AM) – The military media of the Yemeni Armed Forces claim that they have fired two ballistic missiles on Tuesday, both of which according to them hit their targets successfully.

In Tuesday’s twin ballistic missile attacks, which come as the latest in a long row of Yemeni strategic strikes against Saudi targets both in Yemen and on the Saudi side of the border, two important targets were allegedly hit.

First off, a short-range ballistic missile was launched at the Jizan Regional Airport, an important transport hub in southern Saudi Arabia. Following this, Yemeni Missile Forces have fired a Qaher M-2 missile, a modern and domestically produced Yemeni surface-to-surface missile based on the Soviet S-75 Dvina design, on a military command center in the Najran province of Saudi Arabia.

According to the Yemeni Armed Forces, both targets hit their intended targets with high precision and to full effect. Saudi state media however, denies that the Jizan airport was hit, and claims the missile was intercepted.

Saudi Arabia has been at war with Yemen since March 2015, when the Riyadh regime launched an invasion of the Republic in order to destroy the revolutionary government led by Ansarullah (also known as the Houthi movement) and to bring ousted and staunchly pro-Saudi former president Hadi to power.

Almost three years into the war, the Saudi coalition has failed to meet any of its original goals, with strong resistance by Yemen’s troops and militias grinding the Saudi war machine to a halt. Some 13,600 Yemenis have perished in the war thus far, and many millions more are under acute threat of famine due to a Saudi-imposed blockade of the nation.
