VIDEO: Yemeni Army Artillery Fire Kills 11 Saudi Forces in Jizan

Fri Jan 1, 2016 14:15:31

The Yemeni army backed by popular committees killed 11 Saudi Arabian mercenaries in the province of Jizan in the Southern part of the kingdom with their artillery fire.

The artillery shells were fired at the Southern parts of al-Sawabetah region in Jizan, field sources said on Thursday.

They added that the attack also injured dozens of Saudi forces.

The attack was launched after the Yemeni forces fired their upgraded ballistic missiles on the Saudi forces’ positions in Jizan.

Yemen’s Qaher-I ballistic missile precisely hit Saudi Arabia’s military bases in Jizan province on Wednesday, 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; FNA reported.
