Yemen targets Saudi troops positions with guided missiles

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Aug 13, IRNA -- The missile units of the Yemeni army targeted and destroyed positions of Saudi troops in Jizan with guided missiles Sunday night, Almasirah news network reported.

The report said the bases of Saudi military forces at Aldau heights in Jizan were set ablaze after being hit by Yemeni guided missiles.

Meanwhile, Yemeni forces repelled an aggressive operation by Saudi troops in Al Sadis, Najran, killing a number of Saudis. Yemeni army snipers also killed a Saudi soldier in Asir, Saudi Arabia.

A drone of the Saudi-lead coalition was shot down in AL-Jouf province by Yemeni army and popular committees.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly, indiscriminate airstrikes on civilians in an attempt to restore power to fugitive president, Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly Saudi aggression.
