Sana’a army announced that its drones have targeted regions in southwest Saudi Arabia in retaliation of the Saudi-led coalition’s “aggression” against Yemen.
Anssarallah’s army says its drones have hit targets in southwestern Saudi Arabia, following warnings that retaliatory attacks would hit deep in Saudi territory if the kingdom did not stop its war against the impoverished nation.
The spokesman of Sana’a Forces(Houthis), Brigadier General Yahya Sarie, said in a tweet that their Air Force had conducted “a massive operation” on the southwestern cities of Khamis Mushait and Najran at noon on Friday.
The first retaliatory attack targeted “operation room in Najran airport” in Najran region, while the other one hit “aircraft hangars in King Khaled Air Base in Khamis Mushait city” in Asir region.
He said that the military used Qassif K2 drones in the operation.
The spokesman added that “the control room of Najran airport, and weapons warehouses in King Khalid air base in Khamis Mushait, and other military positions” had been targeted in the attack.
The attack came following warnings that retaliatory attacks would hit deep in Saudi territory if the kingdom did not stop its aggression against the Yemeni nation.
Sarie on Thursday emphasized that legitimate retaliatory attacks would continue as long as the Riyadh regime and its allies pressed ahead with their war on and blockade of Yemen.
“We will continue to target military and sovereign institutions that are spearheading the [military] aggression against our people at the depths of Saudi Arabia,” Saree said on Thursday night.
Mohammed Abdulsalam, Spokesman for Yemen’s Anssarallah Movement and senior negotiator for the Yemeni National Salvation Government, affirmed ,on Thursday, the right of the Yemeni People to self-defend and choice to stand alongside the Army and Popular Committees in carrying out the harshest operations in light of the continued siege and raids.
Last week, Yemeni Armed Forces conducted large-scale attacks on the headquarters of the Saudi Defense Ministry and general intelligence agency as well as King Salman Air Base in the capital, Riyadh, and in the Najran and Jizan regions.
