Mon Nov 9, 2015 15:23:56

As Riyadh continues its bombing raids on Yemen the Yemeni army and popular forces fired 15 missiles and rockets at Saudi military bases in the kingdom's Southwestern and Southern provinces of Jizan, Najran and Asir.

According to the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television, the missiles destroyed Khabash military base in Najran on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Yemeni rockets also destroyed a Saudi boat in the coastal waters of the port of Al-Mukha in Ta'iz province.

Saudi Arabia's navy vessels retreated from Yemen's coastal waters after the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait, the fourth Saudi warship sinking in Yemen's offshore waters in the last one month.

The Saudi warship was targeted with Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters in Ta'iz.

The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets on residential areas in Ta'iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.

It was the fourth time that a Saudi warship is completely destroyed during the Saudi-led war on Yemen.

Other Saudi battleships retreated fast following the attack.

On Friday, two smaller vessels of the Saudi navy were destroyed by the Yemeni missile attacks.

The coast of al-Mukha is located in Bab al-Mandab strait and the Saudi-led forces have been trying hard for several months now to win control over coastal regions near the waterway.

On October 25, the Yemeni forces fired rockets at a Saudi-led coalition warship and destroyed it near al-Mukha coast.

On October 11, another ship which belonged to the Egyptian army and named al-Mahrousa was destroyed by Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters near al-Mukha coast.

On October 9, Yemeni army and popular forces also fired missiles at a Saudi warship, and destroyed it in Bab al-Mandab Strait.

The warship was wrecked off the Southwestern coast of Yemen, in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, which connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 229 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 6,920 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 reported.
