Yemeni forces fires ballistic missile on Saudi oil refinery

Al Manar – Rocketry Force in Yemeni army and popular committees fired late Saturday a retaliatory ballistic missile on a Saudi oil facility in the kingdom’s western Yanbu.

Al-Massirah TV quoted a military source as saying that the new ballistic missile Burkan-2H was used for the first time and successfully hit the refineries.

The source noted that the oil refinery in Yanbu is 1,000 km far from the border with Yemen.

Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

The coalition has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of his aggression which is aimed at restoring power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

However, the allied forces of the army and the committees have been heroically confronting the aggression with all means.
