Tehran, Jan 13, IRNA – The Yemeni missile units targeted Saudi forces' positions in Najran with two missiles, Yemeni media reported.

According to Yemeni TV Channel ' Al-Masirah', Yemeni army shot two Zelzal-1 missiles to Khazra crossing, in Najran, southern Saudi Arabia.

Based on the report, Yemeni missiles have hit the targets precisely.

Meanwhile, Yemeni artillery units targeted Saudi forces' positions in Al-Manarah, Jizan.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

However, Saudi forces have violated the truce agreement many times.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of the UN special envoy Martin Griffith and the government representatives. It agreed to establish truce in Yemeni ports of al-Hudaydah, al-Salif and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
