The Yemeni military spokesman Brigadier Yahya Sare’e confirmed that the Yemeni Missile Force and Air Force have carried out a major joint offensive operation towards several targets deep inside Saudi Arabia.
“This is the Fifth Deterrence Operation”, he said at a news conference on Sunday.
A ballistic missile of the type Thulfiqar and 15 drone aircraft including nine Samad-3 UAVs were used in the operation, that targeted sensitive sites in the enemy capital of Riyadh, Sare’e explained. Meanwhile, six Qasef-2K drones bombed military positions on Abha airport and Khamis Mushait airbase.
He confirmed that they hit the targets accurately.
The military spokesman stressed that the military operations are continuing and will expand further as long as the Saudi-led aggression and siege against Yemen continue.
Yahya Sare’e warned all citizens to stay away from airports and sites used for military purposes.
