Dozens of Saudi troopers and Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to Yemen's former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi have been killed when Yemeni army soldiers and fighters from allied Popular Committees launched an offensive against their positions in the kingdom’s southwestern region of Asir.

The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said Yemeni soldiers and allied fighters launched a domestically-developed Badr-F ballistic missile at the strongholds and arms depots of Saudi soldiers and their mercenaries in the Addayer area of the region on Sunday afternoon, leaving dozens of them killed or injured, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported.
Saree added that the projectile hit its designated targets with great precision.
The missile strike caused massive explosions at the targeted area. Ambulances and firefighters rushed to the site amid panic and terror among Saudi army soldiers and Saudi-paid militiamen.
The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces highlighted that the attack was launched after a delicate intelligence operation, and came in response to the Saudi-led military coalition’s crimes against Yemeni people.
