Yemeni Forces Fire Short-Range Zelzal-2 Missile At Saudi Base In Najran

Yemeni forces on Wednesday evening fired another domestically-built ballistic missile at the Saudi base in the border region of Najran, for the second time this week, local media reports.

Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported, citing a military source, that the al-Sadis military base had been targeted with a short-range Zelzal-2 (Earthquake-2) missile, in retaliation for the Saudi-led military strikes against their country.

The report said that the projectile targeted a gathering of Saudi soldiers and mercenaries in the base.

Earlier on Monday, the Yemeni army said that it had launched two domestically-made short-range Badr 1-type missiles at the Saudi Aramco oil facility in the Saudi border province of Jizan, which were intercepted by the Saudi forces.

Additionally on Wednesday evening, the Yemeni forces managed to destroy a Saudi-led coalition tank in Yemen’s western coast, al-Masirah said in a separate report.

Meanwhile, Yemen’s official Saba news agency, citing an unnamed military official, reported that the sniper unit of Yemen’s allied Popular Committees either killed or wounded at least 13 Saudi mercenaries in different localities of the western coast, the northern province of Jawf, and Sirwah district in the central province of Ma’rib.
