The Yemeni army launched missile attacks on strategic military bases in Southern Saudi Arabia on Friday in retaliation for Riyadh’s continued airstrikes on Yemen.
The Yemeni forces hit al-Moazab military base with 10 missiles and al-Khoube military base with 6 missiles today.
The Yemeni army — backed by the Popular Committees — also destroyed the watch tower of Al-Hasira military base in Jizan.
Yemeni Army Spokesman Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman said in a statement that the missiles hit and destroyed the target in precision attacks.
Earlier in the day, civilian targets were pummeled by Saudi air raids in the Northwestern province of Sa’ada in which large groups of people lost their lives.
Riyadh launched airstrikes against Yemen on March 26 without a UN mandate. Saudi Arabia aims to undermine the Ansarullah popular fighters and restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Saudi-US aggression has so far claimed the lives of at least 5,122 people, mostly women and children.
