Sana’a(ANN)-Yemeni forces have targeted an airport in Saudi Arabia with a domestically-manufactured ballistic missile.

According to Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network on Wednesday, the missile was launched at Jizan region’s airport.

The attack came several hours after Yemeni forces targeted a power plant in the kingdom’s Najran region.

According to a Yemeni military source, the missile successfully hit its target.

Earlier in the day, Yemeni forces targeted a Saudi mercenary camp in Najran with rocket and artillery fire, killing and wounding a large number of its occupants.

Yemen’s air defenses also downed a US made drone over the port of Hudaydah.

 

Yemeni forces carry out such attacks in retaliation for Saudi Arabia’s aggression against the war torn country which was launched  in March 2015 in support of Yemen’s former Riyadh-friendly government and against the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, which has been running state affairs in the absence of an effective administration.

On Monday, At least six civilians have been killed and several others wounded when Saudi warplanes conducted multiple airstrikes against residential areas across war-ravaged Yemen.

The offensive has, however, achieved neither of its goals despite the spending of billions of petrodollars and the enlisting of Saudi Arabia’s regional and Western allies.

 

The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the Saudi-led war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured during the past three years.

The United Nations says a record 22.2 million people are in need of food aid, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger. A high-ranking UN aid official recently warned against the “catastrophic” living conditions in Yemen, stating that there was a growing risk of famine and cholera there.
