Yemeni Army Hits Saudi Base with Homegrown Missiles

139409031713493506576964-pngTEHRAN (Tasnim) – Yemen’s army and popular committees fired homegrown ballistic missiles at a military base in Saudi Arabia’s Najran Province in retaliation for continued massacre of civilians by a Saudi-led coalition in the Arabian Peninsula country.

The missile command of the Yemeni army announced that it hit al-Tala’a military base in Najran with a new type of domestically-made missile dubbed Zelzal-2.

Three Saudi soldiers were also killed in the military base by the snipers of the Yemeni army and popular committees on Saturday, according to Al Alam TV network.

The Yemeni forces had previously targeted Saudi positions with ballistic missiles named “Qaher-1”, which has a range of 500 kilometers.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been launching deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Nearly 10,000 Yemenis, including 4,000 women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
