Yemen bombards Saudi aggressors' positions in Asir

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, March 10, IRNA -- The Yemeni army and the popular committee missile and artillery units targeted Saudi aggressors' positions in Asir, southwestern Saudi Arabia with two missiles.

According to Yemeni media 'Al-Masirah', Yemen used Zelzal-1 missiles and has bombarded Alab and Al Raboah districts.

Earlier on Saturday, the Yemeni forces have shot down a Saudi-coalition spy drone in Jizan, southern Yemen.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing back the government of Mansour Hadi back to power.

Some 20,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

The assaults of the Saudi-led coalition forces have failed to stop the Yemenis from resisting the aggression.

Earlier, Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree has accused the Saudi-led coalition of repeatedly breaching ceasefire agreement in Al Hudaydah, Yemen, saying that it has breached the truce 966 times in 4 days.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.
