Jizan Airport targeted by Yemeni missile

Tehran, Sept 7, IRNA – Yemeni Army and popular committees targeted Jizan Airport in south of Saudi Arabia with a ballistic missile.

According to Almasirah News Network, the missile was of Badr 1 type.

Two days earlier, four ballistic missiles of the same type hit Aramco refinery and a petrochemical plant in Jizan.

Yemeni officials say the attack was in retaliation for massacre of the innocent women and children in the impoverished country of Yemen.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of Hadi back to power and crushing the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Some 15,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

The assaults of the Saudi-led coalition forces have failed to stop the Yemenis from resisting the aggression. Recently, the Yemeni army unveiled its home-made underground missile launching pads.
