Yemeni forces fire missile at Jizan Airport in southwestern Saudi Arabia

Yemeni army forces, supported by allied fighters from Popular Committees, have fired a domestically-designed and -developed ballistic missile at a strategic economic target in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border region of Jizan in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s devastating military aggression against their impoverished country.

A Yemeni military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the short-range Badr-1 missile struck Jizan Airport, also known as King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Airport, with great precision on Thursday afternoon, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.

The development came only a day after Yemeni forces attacked an oil refinery of the Saudi Arabian national petroleum and natural gas company, Aramco, in the kingdom’s capital Riyadh using a long-endurance Sammad-2 (Invincible-2) unmanned aerial vehicle.

Also on Thursday, eight people lost their lives and five others, including women and children, sustained injuries when Saudi warplanes conducted an airstrike against a house in the al-Seifi area of Sahar district in Yemen’s mountainous northwestern province of Sa’ada.
