TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The missile command of Yemen’s army and Popular Committees targeted the command center of Saudi forces in the southwestern province of Jizan with a domestically made ballistic missile dubbed “Qaher M2”, local sources said.

The missile attack carried out on early Tuesday morning hit Saudi army's command center in Sametha region in Jizan, the Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.

The report quoted a source at the missile unit of Yemen as saying that attack on the gathering of the mercenaries and forces of the Saudi regime in Sametha came after precise reconnaissance operation.

The source said the missile hit the Saudi targets accurately and inflicted heavy casualties on the Saudi forces and mercenaries in the missile attack.

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”.

The solid propellant and Scud-type Borkan-1 missile reportedly has a range of more than 800 kilometers.

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.

Yemen’s Legal Center of Rights and Development recently announced that the Saudi campaign has claimed the lives of over 12,000 Yemenis and left more than 20,000 others wounded.
