Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah news website, citing a spokesman for the Yemeni army, reported that Yemeni missile defense units hit gatherings of Saudi-led mercenaries in al-Sadis and al-Soh areas with at least four Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) missiles on Sunday.
It added that the missiles successfully hit their designated targets, leaving an unspecified number of mercenaries either dead or wounded.
Al-Masirah further reported that the Yemeni army’s sniper unit either killed or wounded at least 24 Saudi-led mercenaries in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern province of Asir.
It added that Yemeni forces managed to seize a base in the same province.
On Saturday, Yemeni forces also hit a newly-built military base in the southern parts of the Saqqam area in Najran with a Badr-F ballistic missile.
A military official told al-Masirah at the time that the missile had successfully hit its designated target and either killed or wounded dozens of Saudi-led mercenaries in the base, which was partly destroyed in the attack.
Yemeni forces regularly target positions inside Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Saudi-led war on Yemen, which began in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall a former regime and eliminate the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which has been defending the country along with the armed forces.
