The Yemeni army hit a strategic military base in the kingdom's Jizan province with home-made missiles.

Saudi Arabia's al Sababeh military base came under Yemen's missile attacks, killing at least 20 Saudi soldiers.

The Yemeni popular forces, meantime, destroyed two armored vehicles of the Saudi army in Najran's Rajla military base.

In a relevant development earlier on Monday, the Yemeni missile units pounded and destroyed a strategic Saudi military base in the kingdom's Najran province.

The Saudis' Rajla military base in Najran was destroyed by the Yemeni army's home-made ballistic Zalzal-3 missile which was unveiled in July.

The attack also destroyed a number of tanks and military vehicles belonging to the Saudi forces, al-Masirah reported.

The Yemeni army has fired 13 ballistic missiles towards the Saudi military positions in Najran province since the beginning of July.

On Saturday, the Yemeni Zelzal 3 missiles also pounded the Saudi Arabia's Rajla military base in Najran province.

Last week, the Yemeni forces continued their attacks against the Saudi troops in the kingdom's Southern parts, and killed several senior Saudi officers, including a top commander of the Saudi army's 84th Division in the same area.

"The Yemeni army and popular forces fired missiles at Saudi tanks in Najran province, and killed the armored unit commander of the Saudi Army's 84th Division who was also deputy commander of Rajla military base along with other senior Saudi forces," the Arabic-language media outlets quoted an unnamed military source as saying last Monday.

Also last Monday, the Yemeni army, backed by popular forces, fired a ballistic missile at a Saudi military base in the kingdom's Jizan province in retaliation for Riyadh’s relentless attacks on Yemen's civilians.

The Yemeni Tochka missile precisely hit the Saudi military base in the kingdom’s Ahad al-Mosareheh region in Jizan province.

The Saudi forces sustained heavy losses and casualties in the Yemen missile strike; FNA reported.
