Yemen’s army and the Popular Committees forces fired rockets and artillery shells at military bases in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan province in retaliation for the kingdom’s aggression against their nation, leaving several Saudi soldiers dead.
The Yemeni forces fired 40 missiles at the districts of al-Qamar and Sudanah near al-Qarn military base in Jizan on Saturday.
The Yemeni army and the Committees also fired artillery shells at a concentration center of the Saudi soldiers and Saudi military vehicles in al-Maayin military base in Jizan, according to Yemen’ al-Massira TV.
Meanwhile, the Arabic-language television channel also reported on Saturday that scores of militants loyal to fugitive Yemeni president Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi were killed in the Yemeni province of Ma’rib. Eight Saudi military vehicles were also destroyed.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 200 days now to restore power to Hadi. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,579 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Yemeni national military, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
