Yemen Fires Ballistic Missile at Saudi Forces in Najran
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The forces of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees, in a retaliatory attack against the Saudi-led coalition, fired a domestically made ballistic missile at Saudi Arabia’s border city of Najran, local media reports said.
The missile command of Yemen’s army and Popular Committees announced that its forces targeted a “new Saudi army camp” in the western part of Najran with a Badr-1 ballistic missile, the Arabic-language al-Masirah TV said in a tweet.
The attack against the Saudi-led forces came in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians and destruction of Yemen’s infrastructure by the coalition led by Riyadh.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly 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.
The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
