Yemeni forces target ‘sensitive targets’ in Saudi capital with four drones


Press TV: Yemeni military units have used a squadron of domestically-manufactured unmanned aerial vehicles to launch an attack against a number of important targets deep in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, in retaliation for the Riyadh-led devastating war on Yemen.

The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said in a brief statement published on his Twitter page that Yemeni armed forces carried out an airstrike early on Thursday against “important and sensitive” targets in Riyadh, using four drones.

He added that the designated targets were successfully hit during the operation, emphasizing that the airstrike falls within Yemen’s legitimate right to respond to the Saudi-led coalition’s air raids as well as its continued all-out siege against Yemeni people.

The development came nearly a week after Yemeni armed forces carried out a series of retaliatory missile and drone strikes against Saudi Arabia, targeting state-owned Saudi Aramco oil facilities in the kingdom’s southern regions as well as King Abdulaziz Air Base in the Eastern Province.

Saree said in a statement released on March 26 that 12 domestically-manufactured Sammad-3 (Invincible-3) combat drones in addition to eight ballistic missiles of Zulfiqar, Badr and Saeer types struck targets in the Saudi cities of Ras Tanura, Rabigh, Yanbu as well as Jizan, home to key Saudi Aramco oil installations, as part of large-scale Operation National Day of Resilience.

Yemeni forces progress in Ma’rib amid concerns over Saudi-led forces using refugees as ‘human shield’

Yemeni armed forces further advance in Ma’rib as Saudi-led forces use refugees as human shields to slow their progress.

He said that King Abdulaziz Air Base, also known as Dhahran Air Base, in Dammam, the capital of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, was also targeted in the drone and missile strikes.

The Yemeni forces also launched six Qasef-2K (Striker-2K) armed drones against military sites in Saudi Arabia’s Najran, situated 844 kilometers (524 miles) south of Riyadh, and Asir regions.

Saudi sources are yet to make a comment on the new Yemeni drone attack, but the kingdom’s military claimed later on Thursday that it has destroyed a Yemeni ballistic missile on its launchpad in the country.

Saudi state TV’s report alleged that the Yemeni missile was being prepared for launch toward the gas-rich province of Ma’rib, Reuters reported.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and its other regional allies, launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing popular Ansarullah movement.

Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have, however, gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.

The Saudi-led military aggression has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions of people. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the country.

  1. The people of the USA ,ISRAEL ,the UK, & FRANCE that have allied themselves with SAUDI ARABIA to bring this nightmare to YEMEN.
    ” Hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions of people. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the country “.
    SYRIA & IRAN are next on the list you remember General Wesley Clark on 9/11, Says Aggression Against Libya & Syria Was Planned Years Ago in THE neocon plan “for the new American CENTURY”
    Three Jewish Americans in high places particularly come to mind .
    1) Paul Wolfowitz who told the American People that the U.S.would be welcomed with flowers when they invaded IRAQ.
    2) Lieberman ( V.P. Candidate ) who urged the US to invade IRAQ before the terrorists there came to the USA to attack us.
    3) Rahm Emanuel (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ) chose ONLY Iraq war supporters as Democratic Candidates for the US 2000 election.
    So what’s new ? & what should the US do with it’s seemingly endless supply of $$$$$ ?
