TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The forces of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees, in a retaliatory attack against the Riyadh-led coalition, fired six domestically made missiles at the Saudi-backed militants in the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Jizan, local reports said.
The Yemeni forces hit the positions of the Saudi military and its mercenaries with six Zelzal-1 (Quake-1) ballistic missiles in Qais Mountain and the village of al-Laj in Jizan province in Jizan on Thursday, Yemen’s local reports said.
The Yemeni troops also mounted artillery attacks against the gatherings of Saudi mercenaries in the border region of Asir, inflicting casualties on them.
In another development on Thursday, the Air Defense forces of the Arabian Peninsula country shot down a spy drone of the aggressors in the West Coast region.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than three-and-a-half 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.
The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
