A military ammunition depot of the Saudi-led coalition forces was set ablaze following a missile attack by Yemen’s army and Popular Committees, the defense ministry of the Arabian Peninsula country announced.
The Yemeni defense ministry said the ammunition depot located at al-Fawaz military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern province of Najran was exploded after a missile and artillery attack by the Yemeni forces, the Arabic-language Al Mayadeen reported on Wednesday.
In another development, the Yemeni forces managed to target and hit the positions and vehicles of the Saudi troops in two military bases in Jizan with Katyusha rockets.
The forces of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees also pounded the kingdom’s al-Hajar military base in border region of Asir with rockets and artillery.
The attacks by the Yemeni forces were carried out in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
Since March 25, 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to Hadi.
According to Yemen’s Legal Center of Rights and Development, the Saudi campaign has claimed the lives of over 12,000 Yemenis and left more than 20,000 others wounded.
