Yemen targets southern S. Arabia with missile

Tehran, Feb 6, IRNA – Yemen conducted missile and artillery attacks on Asir, Jizan and Njran, southern Saudi Arabia on Tuesday and inflicted heavy damage to Saudi forces.

According to Yemeni media ‘Al-Masirah’, the Yemeni army and popular committees fired two Zelzal-1 missiles to Saudis’ positions in Alab passageway in Asir.

Meanwhile, Yemeni forces in an operation took control of Saudis’ positions in Jabal al-Qais, killing and injuring a number of Saudi forces.

In the meantime, Yemeni artillery units targeted Saudi positions in Al-Khazra and al-Baqa and inflicted heavy losses to them.

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.

Earlier, Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree has accused the Saudi-led coalition of repeatedly breaching ceasefire agreement in Al Hudaydah, Yemen, saying that it has breached the truce 966 times in 4 days.

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.
