Watch: Yemeni forces fire ballistic missile at targets in Saudi capital
Yemen has released footage of a large-scale ballistic missile strike against the Saudi capital in retaliation for the devastating military campaign that the Riyadh regime and its allies are waging on the country.
The video, released by the media bureau of the Ansarullah movement, shows Yemeni armed forces and allied fighters from Popular Committees firing a domestically-developed Zolfaqar ballistic missile that struck King Khalid International Airport, located 35 kilometers north of Riyadh, on Saturday.
The spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Saree said in a press conference on Sunday that Yemeni army troops and allied popular fighters had targeted the Saudi soil with 15 unmanned aerial vehicles and a ballistic missile as part of “the 5th Operation of Balanced Deterrence.”
He said sensitive positions and places in the Saudi capital Riyadh were struck with a Zolfaqar ballistic missile and nine Sammad-3 (Invincible-3) combat drones.
Saree noted that six Qasef-2K (Striker-2K) combat drones had also hit designated military targets inside Abha and Khamis Mushait cities in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern province of Asir.
“As long as the attacks and siege on our country [Yemen] continue, our operations will continue and will be more extensive,” he added.
