AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The forces of the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees mounted retaliatory attacks against Saudi-backed militants on various fronts, killing and injuring a number of them, local reports said.
In separate operations in Yemen’s West Coast region, Taiz and Bayda, the forces of the Arabian Peninsula country managed to inflict heavy casualties on the Riyadh-backed mercenaries, the Arabic-language al-Masriah TV reported.
Also, a military source said the missile command of the Yemeni army fired two domestically-made ballistic missiles dubbed “Zelzal-1” at a gathering of the mercenaries in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern province of Jizan.
In another operation, artillery units of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees pounded the positions of the Saudi-backed militants near the al-Alab border crossing in Asir region.
The attacks against the Saudi-led 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.
