Alwaght- Yemeni naval forces, backed by fighters from Popular Committees, have launched a retaliatory attack targeting a Saudi warship off the coast of the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Jizan

A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that the frigate was targeted with a guided missile on Saturday afternoon.

The source added that the wounded sailors had been transported to local hospitals to receive medical treatment.

Colonel Aziz Rashed, deputy military spokesman for the Yemeni army, said the attack was in retaliation for a recent Saudi airstrike against Yemeni fishermen off the coast of the strategic western province of Hudaydah, which killed five people. Fourteen other Yemeni fishermen remain unaccounted for.

On July 25, Yemeni naval forces and their allies targeted and destroyed a Saudi military vessel in a missile attack off the coast of Hudaydah.

Yemeni forces regularly target positions inside Saudi Arabia and fire rockets at the coalition’s warships in retaliatory attacks against the Riyadh-led military operation on Yemen.

Nearly 15,000 Yemenis, mostly women, children and the elderly, have been killed since March 2015 when the Saudi regime launched a brutal military campaign against the impoverished state. Yemeni forces have been conducting retaliatory strikes against Saudi Arabia and the UAE and their allies.

The United Nations has called the war in Yemen the world's worst humanitarian disaster.

More than 20 million Yemenis need aid, millions are on the brink of famine, and hundreds of thousands have been infected with diseases, mostly cholera.
