Yemeni missile strike kills dozens of Saudi mercenaries in kingdom’s Asir

Dozens of Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to Yemen’s former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, have been killed and several others sustained injuries when Yemeni army forces and their allies fired a domestically-manufactured ballistic missile at their camp in Saudi Arabia’s southern region of Asir.

An unnamed Yemeni military source told Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that Yemeni missile defense units launched a Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) missile at a position of Saudi mercenaries near al-Alab border crossing on Thursday afternoon.

He added that the missile hit the designated target with great precision, leaving dozens of Saudi-paid militiamen dead or injured.

Earlier in the day, Yemeni snipers fired shots at a group of Saudi troopers south of Harad district in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah, killing and injuring several of them.

Separately, Yemeni forces targeted a dozen Saudi-paid militiamen with a roadside bomb as they were traveling along a road south of Hayran district in the country’s northern province of al-Jawf. A number of the Riyadh regime’s mercenaries were killed or injured as a result.
