The Yemeni defense ministry announced in a statement on Tuesday that the army and popular committees have fired 7 Katyusha rockets at the Saudi military positions in the Southern city of Najran, Al-Alam News Network reports.

According to al-Mayadeen, the statement said that the attacks were launched in response to Saudi Arabia's continued airstrikes against different Yemeni cities.

There are yet no reports on the number of casualties and damage to the Saudis in the attack.

At least one Saudi soldier was killed and several others sustained serious injuries after Yemeni troops launched retaliatory attacks against the kingdom's military bases in areas of Asir, Najran and Jizan on Sunday.

According to reports, Yemen's artillery bombed several Saudi military bases in the regions of Asir, Najran and Jizan early on Sunday in retaliation for the monarchy's ongoing airstrikes against the impoverished country.

The reports added that one Saudi soldier lost his life after the attacks pounded a military base in Dhahran Aljanoub, South of Asir region.

A Saudi tank was also destroyed early on Sunday in the attack against the al-Makhrogh base in Najran.
