Yemeni forces launch drone, missile strikes against Saudi mercs in Bayda, Jizan

Yemeni army soldiers, backed by allied fighters from Popular Committees, have reportedly launched an airstrike against a position of Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to Yemen’s former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, in the country’s central province of al-Bayda.
A Yemeni military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Yemeni soldiers and their allies attacked Saudi mercenaries in the al-Jaribat area of the al-Bayda district after they had carried out aerial reconnaissance by an unmanned aerial vehicle.
Later in the day, Yemeni troopers and Popular Committees fighters fired a domestically-designed and –manufactured Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) ballistic missile at the gatherings of Saudi soldiers in Na’shaw military base of the kingdom’s southwestern border region of Jizan.
This file picture provided by the media bureau of Yemen’s Operations Command Center shows a domestically-designed and –manufactured Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) ballistic missile shortly after launch.
There were no immediate reports about possible casualties or the extent of damage caused.
On Sunday evening, Yemeni soldiers and their allies launched another Zelzal-1 missile at Hisn al-Hammad military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern region of Najran, leaving a number of Saudi troopers killed and injured and their military vehicles destroyed.
Yemeni snipers, supported by allied fighters from Popular Committees, also fatally shot three Saudi soldiers at al-Shabakah military base in the same Saudi border region.
A further Zelzal-1 missile targeted Saudi forces stated at Hamiyah base in Jizan.
