Thu Dec 31, 2015 11:12:46

The Yemeni army backed by popular forces launched a fresh round of attacks on the Saudi forces’ positions in the province of Jizan in the Southern part of the kingdom with their upgraded ballistic missiles.

Yemen’s Qaher-I ballistic missile precisely hit Saudi Arabia's military bases in Jizan province, inflicting heavy losses on them.

Tens of Saudi troops were killed and dozens more were injured in the missile attack.

Qaher-I is an updated version of a Russian-made surface-to-surface missile.

On Tuesday, the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted Saudi Arabia's Aramco Oil Company in Jizan with Qaher-I ballistic missiles for a second time in less than two weeks.

"The (Qaher-I) missile precisely hit Aramco oil company on Monday night," the Arabic-language media outlets quoted an unnamed Yemeni army official as saying.

He reiterated that the missile attack came in retaliation for the Saudi-led aggressors' violation of the UN-sponsored ceasefire.

Yet, the source did not give further details about the damage incurred on Aramco Company.

On December 21, the Yemeni forces also hit Aramco Oil Company with Qaher-I ballistic missile.

The ballistic missiles that have recently come into service in Yemen's army have claimed a heavy toll from the Saudi side of the war. Only in the last one week, around 550 Saudi-led troops have been killed by these ballistic missiles.

On Sunday, the Yemeni army and popular forces continued pounding Saudi Arabia's strategic military bases in Najran province with their new upgraded ballistic missiles.

The Yemeni army's ballistic missiles hit Saudi Arabia's National Guards Base in the city of Najran in the Southern part of the kingdom.

The Qaher-I missile strike incurred heavy losses on the Saudi troops in Najran province.

Military sources announced on December 22 that the Yemeni army and the popular forces pounded targets in Al-Khuba region in Saudi Arabia's Southern Jizan province with hundreds of home-made missiles and rockets.

"The Yemeni forces have attacked Al-Khuba region with Over 700 rockets and missiles," the Arabic-language media outlets quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

Last Wednesday, the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted a strategic military base in Saudi Arabia's Asir province with another Qaher-I ballistic missile.

The missile precisely hit its target in Al-Faisal military base in Khamis Mushait region of Asir province.

On Thursday, the Yemeni army and popular forces launched a fresh round of attacks on the Saudi forces' positions in the Southwestern province of Lahij.

Brigadier General Sharaf Qaleb Luqman, the spokesman of the Yemeni armed forces, made the announcement in an interview with Yemen's official news agency, adding that the Yemeni army and popular forces' Tochka missiles hit a gathering of the Saudi forces at al-Anad military base in Lahij province; FNA reported.
