Abu Dhabi: The General Command of the UAE Armed Forces announced the martyrdom of Emirati soldier Nasser Hassan Mohammad Al Beloushi who died on Tuesday.

Al Beloushi succumbed to injuries he sustained while participating in the Saudi-led Arab coalition’s “Operation Restoring Hope” in Yemen.

Al Beloushi, who was being treated at a hospital in Germany, was injured during the fight to liberate the historical city of Maarib.

The General Command of the UAE Armed Forces extended its sincere condolences to the martyr’s family, asking Allah Almighty to bless his soul and to bestow patience and solace upon his family.

20 Saudi-Led Mercenaries Killed in Yemen

Over 20 Saudi-led mercenaries were killed and 70 others were injured as the Yemeni army and popular committees frustrated their attempt to advance towards al-Omari military camp in Taiz province, according to battlefield sources.

The Yemeni forces also bombarded a Saudi warship on Mocha coast in Taiz.

Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.

However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been responding to the aggression by targeting several Saudi border military posts and cleansing several areas across the country, especially the country’s south, from Hadi and al-Qaeda-linked militias.

Yemen Unveils New Generation of Home-Made Missiles

The Yemeni army and popular forces unveiled the second generation of their home-made Zalzal missiles that has already come into action in the war with Saudi Arabia.

The second generation of Zalzal missile is fully home-made and is the third type of missile made by the Yemeni forces.

In late May, the Yemeni revolutionary movement unveiled two Najm al-Saqeb (striking star) mid-range missiles with a range of 45km and 75km.

“The second generation of Zalzal has much higher precision than the first generation and several Zalzal missiles destroyed al-Qarn military base in Jizan province, Southern Saudi Arabia,” Yemen’s official news agency Saba quoted a military source as saying on Monday.

Zalzal missile is 2.5 meters long, it weighs 350 kilograms, is equipped with a warhead which is 90 centimeters long and weighs over 140 kilograms and has a range of 15 kilometers.

Al-Najm al-Saqeb1 is three meters long with a range of 45 kilometers and payload of 50 kilograms. Al-Najm al-Saqeb2 is five meters long with a range of 75 kilometers and a payload of 75 kilometers.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 244 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 6,984 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.
