Saudi border military base under fire of Yemen’s Ansarullah ballistic missile
Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters said late on Saturday that they fired a ballistic missile deep into Saudi border city of Khamis Mushait, targeting Allamuza military base. According to a statement posted on Houthi-controlled state Saba news agency, the missile hit the target accurately. Houthis said the missile fire came in “retaliatory response to the Saudi-led continuing air strikes on Yemeni cities.” Khamis Mushait city locates in Asir region, adjacent to Yemen’s northern border. It was the latest in a series of ballistic missile attacks by Houthis, who dominate most part of northern Yemen, against Saudi border cities since March 2015. Saba news agency reported dozens of air strikes over the past 24 hours by the Saudi-led warplanes against targets across northern Yemeni cities, including the capital Sanaa, northern provinces of Hajja and Saada and southwestern province of Taiz.
