(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The Yemeni popular forces and army on Sunday fired a barrage of ballistic missiles, Burkan, towards Saudi capital, Riyadh, said a military official.
The missiles hit an information center of Saudi Defense Ministry and other vital royal targets accurately.
The Rocketry force fired stepped up ballistic missile attacks toward military and vital sites in the deep of Saudi Arabia, the official added. Borkan ballistic missiles hit its targets directly, said the official.
Riyadh frequently reports intercepting missiles fired from Yemen, but various reports have pointed out that US-made Patriot interceptors were repeatedly failing against the counterattacks.
The Houthi movement, which is a significant aid to the Yemeni army in defending the country against the invading forces, has been running state affairs in the absence of an effective administration during the past three years.
Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war on Yemen in March 2015 to reinstall the former Saudi-backed Hadi regime and crush the Houthi movement.
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 an accompanying blockade have also caused famine across Yemen.
