A Russian Ilyushin-78 multi-purpose airplane bringing 23 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Yemen via Sanaa’s international airport, was blocked from leaving, Thursday.

Yemeni Missiles Rain down on Several Saudi Provinces

The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters conducted several retaliatory attacks against key positions in several Saudi provinces, inflicting heavy losses on the kingdom’s forces.

Yemeni forces struck positions in al-Qaran district in Saudi Arabia’s province of Jizan, killing several Saudi forces and destroying their military equipment Wednesday evening.

Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters also attacked several key Saudi military positions in the provinces of Asir and Najran.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni forces regained control of the Hesn ul-Matrab military camp, a highly strategic site in the province of Shabwah in Yemen, which was under the control of supporters of the fugitive former president of Yemen, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Yemeni army and popular committees have intensified their retaliatory attacks against Saudi Arabia, killing a group of the kingdom’s soldiers, reports said.

The Yemeni forces fired rockets at targets in the Saudi region of Jizan, and killed a large number of soldiers.

The news comes as the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television said Saudi Arabia launched new airstrikes on Safia Tamesh area in Sanhan district in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a.

Earlier reports said Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters and army troops killed a ranking Saudi commander and dozens of his forces in the province of Ta’iz.

The Yemeni forces took control of a military base that had been occupied by Saudi forces in Ta’iz province a while ago, and killed a senior Saudi commander and his troops deployed in the base.

Saudi troops later launched a counter-offensive to take back the base, but they failed and escaped the region after losing a number of their vehicles.

Meanwhile, Ansarullah fighters also pounded a base in the Saudi border region of Jizan in a massive missile attack.

The Yemeni army also launched missile attacks on military bases in Zahran in the Asir border region of Saudi Arabia.

Yemeni Popular Committees fired a number of missiles at Saudi bases in the al-Khubah district in Jizan.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 225 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,919 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

The Saudi-led coalition plane was targeted by the Yemeni army while flying over Sahar region in Saa’da province on Saturday.

Meantime, a separate report said that the Yemeni popular forces have also downed a spying drone in al-Zaher region.

No other details have been released on either incident yet.
