Yemen's Ansarullah fighters and army forces fired missiles on the Saudi military base of Khawbah in the Persian Gulf kingdom's Southwest in retaliation for Riyadh's aggression against their nation.

Yemeni forces launched 10 Grad missiles at the Khawbah military base in Jizan, reports said late on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, the Ansarullah forces destroyed a Saudi military vehicle and killed several soldiers during an attack on the Jalah military site in Jizan.

According to Yemeni sources, several rockets were also fired at some other Saudi military positions in the Southwestern Najran region, including an army camp and a border guard unit.

The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 141 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,386 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures, FNA reports.
