More than 50 Saudi-led Forces Killed, Injured in Yemen Rocket Attack
More than 50 Saudi-led forces were killed and injured as Yemeni army and popular committees launched a ballistic missile on their gathering in al-Jawf province.
Yemeni sources said at least 30 soldiers were killed while 24 others were injured in the rocket attack in al-Hazm governorate.
The Saudi-led forces were gathering in Brigade 115 headquarters when a ballistic missile was fired, the sources said.
Among the killed and the injured are officials in the Saudi-led coalition which has been for more than a year launching an air campaign against Yemen, according to the sources.
Meanwhile, the sources added that ambulances rushed to the attack scene, amid high secrecy by the aggression forces on the losses.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 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 engaged in battles with Saudi-led mercenaries and Hadi’s militias in several areas across the country.
