TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Yemen’s army and Popular Committees fired a homegrown ballistic missile at a position of Saudi-backed mercenaries in the southwestern Taiz province in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians by Riyadh in the impoverished Arab country.

The missile force of Yemen’s army and Popular Committees on Wednesday fired a Zilzal 2 ballistic missile on a gathering of Saudi-paid mercenaries in Taiz, a military official told Saba News Agency.

The missile hit its target accurately in western coast front, killing dozens of the mercenaries and wounding others.

Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for almost three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.

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

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
