Yemeni Army attack Saudi Base with missiles, several Saudi soldiers killed


TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The forces of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees, in retaliatory attacks against the Saudi-led coalition, killed several Saudi servicemen in the kingdom’s southwestern province of Najran.

The Yemeni forces targeted and hit ‘Abbaseh’ military base in Najran using artillery shells and missiles, killing and injuring a number of the Saudi servicemen, according to the Arabic-language al-Masirah television network.

Yemeni soldiers and Popular Committees fighters also lobbed several artillery rounds against Saudi mercenaries’ gathering at al-Ramlia hill around al-Khazrae crossing and al-Sadis military bases in Najran region, located 844 kilometers south of the Saudi capital, Riyadh,

They also pounded Saudi positions at al-ramdha, Mothen, al-Qonbour and al-Teval in Jizan with Katyusha rockets and mortar shells.

Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, have increased attacks against positions held by Saudi mercenaries in several provinces across the conflict-ridden country in the past two months. At least 57 Saudi regime’s serviceman were killed in Yemen in September, the Saudi media reported.

The attacks against Saudi forces came in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians and destruction of Yemen’s infrastructure by the Saudi-led coalition.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than two and half 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 Hadi.

Over 12,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
