The Yemen’s Anssarullah (Houthis) forces announced Sunday night launching a large-scale operation and fired eight ballistic missiles at vital targets in Saudi Arabia.
The Sana’a UAV and missile unit fired 22 missiles and drones to Saudi Arabia in a joint operation, said Spokesman of Sana’a forces, Brigadier General Yahya Sarie in a press statement.
The operation, dubbed ” sixth deterrent balance,” involved eight ballistic missiles and 14 long-range attack drones, he added.
In this operation, the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) in Ras Tanura and military targets in the city of Dammam (eastern Saudi Arabia) have been targeted with 10 ‘Samad 3’ UAVs and a ‘Zolfaqar’ missile, Sarie noted.
He also said that four ‘Qasif K2’ UAVs and seven ‘Badr’ missiles also targeted areas in Aseer and Jazan in western Saudi Arabia.
The Spokesman highlighted that this operation was carried out within the framework of Yemen’s natural and legitimate right in response to the actions of the ‘Saudi aggressor coalition’ in intensifying attacks and a complete siege against the country.
Brigadier General Sarei threatened the Saudi regime with a lot of painful operations as long as it continued the “aggression” and blockade imposed on the Yemeni people.
An hour ago, the Saudi coalition claimed to have intercepted and destroyed two Yemeni ballistic missiles over Jazan.
Simultaneously with this claim, Saudi citizens announced the occurrence of several severe explosions by publishing images and videos from the cities of Dammam and Al-Khobar.
Meanwhile, news sources report on Sunday renewed attacks on Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, hours after a previous airstrike on the city and the closure of its airport.
