Jizan targeted with Yemeni missile

Tehran, Yemeni Army's missile unit and popular committees hit the Saudi Arabian industrial city of Jizan in southwest of the country Wednesday night.

According to Al-Massira News Network, Yemen home-made ballistic missile 'Badr 1' was fired at the Saudi border city.

Confirming the attack, Saudi media claimed that Saudi Army's air defense has tracked and intercepted the missile.

This is the second time that the city comes under attack as it was targeted on June 6 by the Yemeni missile unit.

Yemen has frequently targeted Saudi sites in response to the Coalition's merciless offensives since Saudi Arabia started military war against the impoverished country.

The military attack has not only failed to eliminate the fledgling popular revolution in Yemen, but has also cost heavily for the two active members of the coalition; Saudi Arabia and UAE.
