Yemeni forces target Saudi mercenaries in Hajjah

Yemeni forces have targeted a gathering of Saudi mercenaries in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah with a domestically-manufactured missile.

Citing an unnamed military source, Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported that Yemeni missile defense units successfully hit a gathering of Saudi mercenaries in Hajjah with a Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) missile on Thursday.

The report said the missile successfully hit its designated target and killed or wounded a number of mercenaries.

The retaliatory missile attack came a day after the Yemeni army targeted the same area with six missiles, killing or wounding number of mercenaries, report.

Yemeni forces regularly target positions inside Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Saudi war, which began in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall the country’s Riyadh-allied former regime and crush the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement.
