TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A spokesman for the Yemeni army cautioned the Israeli regime against its continued acts of aggression against the Arabian Peninsula country, and said the Israeli military bases in Eritrea is within the range of Yemen’s homegrown ballistic missiles.
Speaking to the Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, Colonel Aziz Rashid said Israel is taking part in the Saudi-led coalition’s aggression against Yemen.
He further warned that the Yemeni navy’s missiles can target and hit the military bases that the Zionist regime has hired in Eritrea.
The commander also emphasized that in the near future, the Yemeni ballistic missiles can reach ports in the occupied territories in Palestine.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the Saudi-led coalition for more than two years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
The forces of the Arabian Peninsula country have already hit Saudi positions with various homegrown missiles, including “Qaher-1”, which has a range of 500 kilometers, and “Borkan-1”.
Since March 25, 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Over 12,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
