VIDEO: Yemeni Army Fires Missiles at Saudi-Held Military Base in Ma’rib

Sun Jan 17, 2016 12:39:23

The Yemeni army, backed by Popular Committees loyal to the Houthi Ansarullah movement, has targeted a Saudi-held military base in Yemen’s central province of Ma’rib with a ballistic missile.

The Tochka missile hit the base used by Saudi mercenaries on Saturday, inflicting heavy damage on the facility.

In another development, Yemeni snipers killed four Saudi troops in the Taval border crossing in the kingdom’s southwestern Jizan region. Following the incident, Saudi warships launched missile attacks on the area.

Also on Saturday, the Yemeni army fired a number of rockets and missiles at military bases in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Najran Province, and foiled a Saudi attack on the Jebel Hilan in Ma’rib, Yemen’s official Saba Net news agency reported.

On Sunday, Saudi warplanes continued their aerial campaign against Yemen, pounding the Rashid industrial complex and a pharmaceutical company in the capital, Sana’a. Saudi fighter jets also targeted Hamzah military base in the central Ibb Province seven times.

Yemen’s al-Masirah television channel also reported that Saudi fighter jets carried out over 40 air raids on the route connecting the provinces of Ma’rib and al-Jawf.

Riyadh began its military aggression against Yemen in late March 2015. The strikes are supposedly meant to undermine the Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive former Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since the strikes began. The Saudi war has also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure.

Yemenis have, meanwhile, been carrying out reprisal attacks on the Saudi forces deployed in the country as well as targets inside Saudi Arabia, Press TV reported.
