Yemen forces fire two ballistic missiles on Saudi’s Najran

Al Manar– Rocketry force in Yemen’s army and popular committees carried out on Tuesday a double operation, firing two ballistic missiles on Saudi posts in Najran.

In a statement, the rocketry force said it had fired a Toshka missile on a Saudi post in the southern city of Najran, targeting a huge gathering of Saudi national guards and an operations room in the military post.

The second missile was the locally-developed “Zilzal” missile, targeting Rajla Saudi post on the border area with Yemen, Yemeni TV, al-Massirah reported.

It is the first time that the rocketry force, in the Yemeni army and popular committees, carries out a double operation in which it targets areas beyond the Yemeni border.

The Ballistic missiles on Tuesday managed to break through the Saudi defense arsenal as well as surveillance techniques hired by Riyadh during its aggression against Yemen.

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
