80 Saudi-Led Forces Killed in Yemeni Army’s Missile Attack

The Yemeni army carried out a missile attack against a military base of the Saudi-led coalition on an island in the Red Sea, killing 80 forces and injuring 100 others, sources said.

The missile unit of the Yemeni army targeted the Saudi-Emirati military camp on Zuqar Island in the Red Sea with a ballistic missile, according to military sources.

In the attack, which was launched in retaliation for the continued massacre of Yemeni civilians by the Saudi-led coalition, 80 of the forces were killed and 100 others injured.

The forces of the Arabian Peninsula country have already hit Saudi positions with various homegrown ballistic missiles, including “Qaher-1”, which has a range of 500 kilometers, and “Borkan-1”.

The solid-propellant and Scud-type Borkan-1 missile reportedly has a range of more than 800 kilometers.

The missile attacks are in response to the aggression launched by Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies in March 2015.

The Saudi-led coalition has been launching deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in the past year and a half in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Some 11,000 Yemenis, including women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
