TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Yemeni army backed by Popular Committees launched a retaliatory missile attack against a military base near the Saudi border, killing at least ten.

 

The Wednesday night missile attack struck a military base located in Yemen's Saada governorate on the border with Dhahran in southern Saudi Arabia.

It has reportedly targeted a concentration of Saudi-backed forces loyal to the fugitive Yemeni president Riyadh is trying to get back into power through its five-year war on Yemen.

A report by Al Jazeera says 10 were killed and several others wounded in the Yemeni attack.

The Yemeni army and popular committees have not yet comment on the missile attack.

Earlier this month, Yemeni armed forces launched missile and drones strikes against a strategic target in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, as they step up their campaign of retaliation against the aggressor kingdom.

Spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Saree said that a domestically-developed Zolfaqar ballistic missile and four Samad-3 drones were used to hit the “important target” in Riyadh in early September.

He said Yemeni forces will keep up their retaliatory raids against sensitive and strategic targets on Saudi soil as long as Riyadh and its allies fail to end their military campaign and siege against Yemen.
