Saudi military base hit by Yemen ballistic missile

Tehran, Yemen Army's missile unit fired a Badr 1 ballistic missile at a Saudi military base in south of the country late Saturday.

Yemeni army and popular forces also targeted a newly-established military base in Najran, south of the country, early on Saturday.

Yemen has frequently targeted Saudi sites in response to the Coalition's merciless offensives since Saudi Arabia waged a 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.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

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