AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Yemen's army on Tuesday struck the command and control center of Saudi-backed militants and UAE forces in the Arabian Peninsula country’s west coast region with a combat drone, a report said.
Yemen's Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, citing unnamed military commanders, said on Tuesday that a Yemeni unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV), struck the military site.
There is no information about possible death toll and the extent of the damage inflicted upon Saudi troops and the military base in the retaliatory attack.
Earlier, Yemen drones struck King Khalid air base in the southwestern region of Asir on the Saudi soil.
The attacks against the Saudi forces came in retaliation for the continued massacre of civilians and destruction of Yemen’s infrastructure by the coalition led by the Riyadh regime.
Yemen’s defenseless people have been under massive attacks by the coalition for more than three years but Riyadh has reached none of its objectives in Yemen so far.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
The Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights announced in a statement on March 25 that the war had left 600,000 civilians dead and injured until then. The war and the accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
