Saudi Arabia bases targeted by Yemeni missiles, UAVs

TEHRAN, Jun. 28 (MNA) – Spokesman for Yemen Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Saree announced that Yemeni forces have carried out a successful operation against Saudi military positions in Najran, Abha, and Khamis Mushait.

In a new operation, the Saudi National Guard base in Najran, military positions at Abha International Airport and King Khalid Air Base were targeted by Yemeni forces, Almayadeen reported, quoting Yahya Saree.

“Using five ballistic missiles and five UAVs, we carried out this operation in the last 24 hours”, he added.

The spokesman for the Yemeni armed forces said the attack was in response to the Saudi coalition's aggression and siege against the Yemeni people.

A Saudi-led coalition began waging a hugely indiscriminate war on Yemen in 2015. The war has been seeking to restore power to Yemen’s former officials, who have been loyal friends to Riyadh and trying to deploy the kingdom’s agendas in its southern neighbor.

Tens of thousands of Yemenis have died and the entire country, which was already the Arab world’s poorest nation, has been pushed close to the brink of outright famine.

Yemen’s army and Popular Committees have, however, never laid down their arms in the face of the heavily Western-armed coalition.

They have staged numerous daring counterattacks against the kingdom, including its oil facilities and capital, and made surprise advances in the western province of Ma’rib to the sheer alarm of Riyadh and its supporters.
