Yemeni Missiles Target Strategic Military Base in Najran

The Yemeni army launched missile attacks on a strategic military base in Southern Saudi Arabia on Tuesday in retaliation for Riyadh’s continued airstrikes on Yemen.

The Yemeni forces hit the al-Ayr military base in Najran with several missiles.

Yemeni Army Spokesman Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman said in a statement that the missiles hit and destroyed the target in a precision attack.

Earlier in the day, civilian targets were pummeled by Saudi air raids in the Northwestern province of Sa’ada in which large groups of people lost their lives.

Additionally, more Saudi strikes hit various areas in the Southwestern province of Aden on Monday and claimed the lives of scores of innocent people.

The attacks came after Saudi air raids left dozens of people dead in the Yemeni capital’s Sa’awan neighborhood early on Monday.

The UN announced on Thursday that a humanitarian truce would come into force in Yemen to allow the delivery of urgently needed aid to civilians.

The ceasefire came into force at 23:59 local time (2059 GMT) on Friday and was due to run up to the end of the holy month of Ramadan on July 17. But Saudi Arabia has repeatedly violated the ceasefire.

Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen in the last 112 days to bring its ally, fugitive president Mansour Hadi, back to power.

The airstrikes have so far claimed the lives of more than 5,099 civilians, mostly women and children
