Yemen’s National Salvation government on Monday threatened to strike ten vital and sensitive targets deep inside Saudi Arabia within the next 24 hours.
The move came during a press conference held in Sana’a by the Yemeni army spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e, who also reviewed the achievements of the Armed Forces during the year 2020.
“We are ready to carry out these specific strikes on vital targets in Saudi Arabia within 24 hours if the leadership decides to do so,” Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said.
He noted that the missile forces had “fired 75 ballistic and winged missiles targeting Saudi Arabia, while another 178 missiles were fired at military positions belonging to coalition-backed forces in 2020.”
