Saudi military base comes under attack by Yemen missile

Tehran, Yemeni Army's missile unit fired a ballistic missile at a military base in south of Saudi Arabia.

According to Almasirah news website, the missile was of Badr 1 type but Saudi media outlet claimed that Saudi Arabian Army's air defense system intercepted the missile over Najran.

Late on Tuesday, Yemeni Army's missile unit also targeted Aramco oil refinery in Jizan, south of Saudi Arabia.

In addition to Aramco oil facility, an industrial township in Jizan came under attack by the Yemeni missile unit.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of Hadi back to power and crushing the country's Houthi Ansarullah movement.

Some 15,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the onset of the Saudi-led aggression.

The assaults of the Saudi-led coalition forces have failed to stop the Yemenis from resisting the aggression. Recently, the Yemeni army unveiled its home-made underground missile launching pads.
