Saudi garrison targeted by Yemen ballistic missile

Tehran, Yemeni Army's missile unit targeted a Saudi garrison in Jizan in south of Saudi Arabia with a ballistic missile on Tuesday.

According to Al-Massira, the Badr 1 missile precisely hit the target.

However, Saudi media claimed that an anti-missile system has intercepted the missile over Jizan.

Meanwhile, Yemeni Army's missile unit targeted UAE forces' headquarters in the west coast.

Last Thursday, Yemeni Army's missile unit also targeted positions of UAE forces in the same region.

Artillery unit of the Yemeni army also shelled Saudi military positions in Najran, south of Saudi Arabia.

Yemeni authorities have frequently announced that the missile attacks are in retaliation for the crimes being committed by Saudi Arabia and its allies against the innocent people of Yemen.

In March 2015 Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies launched a large scale military aggression against the impoverished Arab country in a bid to bring back to power deposed Yemeni president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

So far 14,000 innocent Yemeni people have been killed and the country has been turned into ruins as a result of Saudi Arabian aggression.
