Saudi military base targeted by Yemeni missile

Tehran, Sept 8, IRNA – The Yemeni missile unit and the popular committees targeted a Saudi military base in Asir, southwestern Saudi Arabia on Friday night.

According to Yemeni TV Channel ‘Al-Masirah’, the newly-established base was targeted by ‘Badr-1’ ballistic missile and various parts of it has been seriously damaged.

Earlier Yemeni Army and popular committees targeted Jizan Airport south of Saudi Arabia with a ballistic missile.

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.
