Yemeni army and Popular Committees fired a homegrown ballistic missile at a military base in Saudi Arabia’s Najran Province in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians by the Saudi-led coalition in the poor Middle Eastern country.
The missile command of the Yemeni army said it targeted Saqam military base in Najran with a new type of homegrown missile dubbed Zelzal-2 and several Katyusha rockets.
The Arabic-language al-Ahed website quoted a military source as saying that the missile hit the Saudi targets with pinpoint accuracy.
It came after Saudi Arabia’s continued massacre of civilians and destruction of Yemen’s infrastructure by the Saudi-led coalition.
The Yemeni civilians have been under massive attacks by the coalition for some two years. Riyadh, however, has achieved none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
Saudi Arabia and some of its regional allies launched the military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, and 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.
Since the beginning of the military campaign, more than 12,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives.
Right groups across the world strongly criticize Riyadh’s brutal attacks against Yemeni civilians.
