The Yemeni army and popular forces’ missile attack on a Saudi-led command center in Ma’rib killed over 120 mercenaries, including the Saudi, UAE and US officers.

“The Yemeni army missile unit fired a Tochka missile at the operations room of the Saudi-led forces in Ma’rib (on Sunday) and killed over 120 mercenaries with different nationalities,” Ali al-Houthi, an Ansarullah Movement Leader, told FNA on Tuesday.

“46 Saudi mercenaries, 11 UAE and 9 Saudi officers and 11 foreign commanders of the US Blackwater company were among those killed in the attack,” he added.

Houthi said that 6 Apache and 4 Black Hawk helicopters and 4 drones armed with missiles were also destroyed in the attack.

The command room of communications with the spying satellites and airplanes was also destroyed completely.

Al-Houthi had also on Sunday said that the missile had hit al-Bairaq military base which hosts the headquarters of the Saudi army’s operations.

“The Tochka missile hit the target with high precision and killed tens of the Saudi-led forces, including a senior Saudi commander, who had arrived at the base just yesterday,” he said on Sunday.

Houthi added that in addition to the heavy toll, a large volume of state-of-the-art weapons and military equipment were destroyed in the attack.

He described the missile attack against the Saudi’s headquarters in Ma’rib as a major intelligence and military achievement for the Yemeni army and popular forces, FNA reported.
