Yemen’s Zalzal-2 missiles targeted the gathering centers of the Saudi-backed militias in Yakhtal area of al-Mukha region in Ta’iz province, killing and injuring several of them as well as destroying their military vehicles and equipment.
The missile attack came after the Saudi-led fighter jets struck al-Far region in the town of Kataf in Sa’ad province three times.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 14,300 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
According to several reports, the Saudi-led air campaign against Yemen has drove the impoverished country towards humanitarian disaster, however the Riyadh regime has failed to reach its goals despite suffering great expense.
Nearly 3.3 million Yemeni people, including 2.1 million children, are currently suffering from acute malnutrition. The Al-Saud aggression has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
