Saudi city of Jizan targeted by Yemen missile

Tehran, Yemeni army missile unit and popular committees fired a missile at the industrial city of Jizan in southeast Saudi Arabia late Friday.

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

However, Saudi media confirmed the missile attack but claimed the country's air defense system had intercepted the missile.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly, indiscriminate airstrikes on civilians in an attempt to restore power to fugitive president, Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly Saudi aggression.
