Saudi Tank Destroyed in Yemenis’ Retaliatory Attack

Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters and allied army units fired missiles at a Saudi military base in the province of Jizan in the early hours of Saturday, and destroyed a military tank in retaliation for the Persian Gulf kingdom’s ongoing aggression.

Some Saudi military equipment were also destroyed or severely damaged in the attack.

Earlier on Friday, a Saudi soldier was killed in rocket attacks by the Yemeni forces in the same troubled area.

Yemeni forces have also pounded a Saudi military camp in the Asir region with a barrage of Grad missiles.

Meanwhile, Saudi air raids targeted a medical facility as well as a school in the Hays district of the Yemeni province of Hudaydah, killing at least five civilians.

Two more people lost their lives as Saudi military aircraft launched 10 airstrikes on Baqim district in Yemen’s mountainous province of Sa’ada.

Saudi warplanes also pounded a residential area in Tai’zz province, killing two people and wounding four women. Moreover, over 80 Saudi rockets and mortar shells hit the Kitaf district of Sa’ada province.

The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 136 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,350 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
