Alwaght- Allied Yemeni forces have fired several missiles at Saudi military positions in the kingdom’s southern regions in retaliation for Riyadh's deadly military campaign against their country.
According to Al Masirah TV, The Yemeni army and fighters from allied Popular Committees fired five Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) missiles at Saudi military positions near Alab border crossing in the kingdom's southwestern region of Asir on Sunday.
A military source said that the attack left an unspecified number of Saudi troops dead and injured, the report added. Saudi authorities usually keep the number of their war casualties a secret.
The Yemeni forces fired two more missiles at military positions east of al-Nar Mountain in Jizan.
Just days earlier, they foiled a massive Saudi offensive in the city of Sa'ada, killing at over 90 mercenaries and injuring over 100 others.
The Saudi-led war on Yemen, now on its 5th year, has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. More than 15,000 Yemenis, an absolute majority of them civilians, have been killed during Saudi Arabia’s illegal war on their nation while tens of thousands have lost their lives indirectly due to the brutal war. The UN has warned that a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in dire need of food, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger. According to the world body, Yemen is suffering from the most severe famine in more than 100 years.
The Israeli regime and several Western countries especially the US and Britain are also complicit in the ongoing aggression as they supply the Saudi regime with advanced weapons and military equipment as well as logistical and intelligence assistance.
