On July 28 morning, the Yemeni Missile Force, an ally of the Houthis, launched a “short-range ballistic missile” at the Saudi-led coalition’s headquarters in the Kingdom’s southern province of Najran.
Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, claimed that the attack was successful and that many personnel of the coalition were killed and injured.
“We affirm today to the forces of aggression that the long hand of the Yemeni armed forces will chase them wherever they are and that our targets list is expanding day by day,” the spokesman said.
The Houthis didn’t provide any information on the type of the missile used in the attack. The Yemeni group usually uses the Badir-1P precision-guided artillery rocket or the Badir-F tactical ballistic missile.
This was the second such attack on Najran in the last 12 hours. Earlier, several suicide drones launched by the Houthis targeted the military section of the province’s airport knocking it out of service.
The Saudi-led coalition has not released any statement on the recent attacks, so far. This usually means that they were relatively successful.
