Riyadh has been training 5,000 militants from a number of terrorist groups from Aden port to Eritrea’s Assab port to be sent to the Saudi provinces bordering Yemen.
According to Fars News Agency, unnamed sources said that “The terrorists, some of whom are from the Al-Qaeda, will be dispatched to Najran, Jizzan and Asir provinces to fight against the Yemeni army and popular forces and prevent their further advances in Southern Saudi Arabia.”
The sources added that the Yemeni forces’ advancement into Saudi borders have frightened Saudi officials more than the ballistic missiles fired from Yemen.
A commander of the Yemeni popular forces, Hossein al-Houthi, told Fars that his forces “have managed to retake control of several villages from Saudi mercenaries and have destroyed five Saudi tanks, their military outposts and a command room of the Saudi-led coalition in Ta’iz province.”
According to reports on Friday, Yemen’s long-range missile, dubbed Borkan-1 (Volcano-1) has hit targets deep inside Saudi Arabia. The attack was a retaliation against the regime’s massacre of civilians in the war-torn nation.
The Yemeni ministry said the Barkan-1 missile has been designed to destroy Saudi military base structures with respect to the materials used in their construction.
It, however, did not reveal the exact location of the targets that Borkan-1 missile hast hit and destroyed.
Earlier reports indicated large casualties on the Saudi side. The Saudi army have lost over a hundred troops each time Yemen launched its missiles.
