The Yemeni army’s missile division carried out a precision counterattack against a Saudi Arabia military base in the southwestern Saudi region of Najran and the projectile hit its intended target of the Bin Yalin outpost on Wednesday, inflicting heavy losses on it, Yemen’s al-Masirah television reported.

According to report a power station and a military base in the nearby southwestern Saudi region of Jizan also came under retaliatory mortar attacks by Yemeni forces.

To the north of Jizan, Yemeni troops struck the Malek al-Faisal military base in the Khamis Mushait city of the Asir region with a Qaher-1 ballistic missile.

Yemen’s military has been carrying tit-for-tat attacks against gatherings of Saudi mercenaries inside Yemen as well as targets in the kingdom’s southwest in retaliation for Riyadh’s 2015-present military campaign against the country, PRESS TV reports.

More than 10,000 people have killed since the kingdom launched the campaign to crush the Yemeni Houthi Ansarallah movement and their allies and bring back the former Yemeni government, a close Riyadh ally to power.

Also on Wednesday, Saudi aircraft hit the Bani Matar district in Yemen’s central-west province of Sanaa several times.

The warplanes pounded the districts of al-Dhaher and Haydan in the remote northwestern province of Saada with sound bombs and missiles.

Meanwhile, Director General of Yemen’s Air Transport Mazen Ahmad Qanem said a large number of the wounded from Saudi Arabia’s attack on a funeral ceremony in the capital Sana’a last Saturday had died after not being able to travel for treatment.

The attack killed more than 140 civilians and has injured more than 615 others.

Boosting its campaign of bloodletting, Riyadh has been imposing a naval blockade of Yemen and keeping the capital’s International Airport closed.
