Yemeni armed forces, supported by popular committees, fired Wednesday night a ballistic missile at the headquarters of Saudi Information and Electronic Warfare in Najran, southern Saudi Arabia.
A military source said that the rocket force of the Yemeni army and the Popular Committees bombed the headquarter with a homemade Badr 1 ballistic missile.
Earlier in the day, the Yemeni forces fired a salvo of domestically-designed and -developed ballistic missiles at “economic targets” in the Saudi capital city of Riyadh in retaliation to the Al Saud’s aggression.
Yemen’s Joint Operations Command announced in a statement that the long-range missiles struck the designated targets with great precision, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.
Four blasts were heard in the central part of Riyadh, but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
Saudi authorities later claimed that its air defense systems had intercepted the missiles in the skies over the capital.
A military spokesman for the Ansarullah resistance movement, Colonel Aziz Rashed, said the missile attack marked “a new phase” and was revenge for Saudi airstrikes on Yemen.
“There will be more salvos until this enemy is deterred, understands the meaning of the Yemeni might and ceases its crimes,” he pointed out.
