The missile command of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees hit the Saudi forces’ positions in Najran with two homegrown missiles dubbed “Zelzal-1”, the Arabic-language al-Masirah TV reported.
The artillery unit of the Yemeni forces also hit the same area with Katyusha rockets, targeting the vehicles of the Saudi troops.
In another attack, the Yemeni forces shelled the positions of the Saudi forces and their mercenaries in the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Jizan, according to the report.
The attacks 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 the Riyadh regime.
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.
