(FNA) ~ The Yemeni army and popular forces took control of a strategic military base in the province of Najran, Southern Saudi Arabia.
The Yemeni forces captured al-Shabaka military base in Al-Sharafa region in Najran province on Saturday evening.
“The Yemeni forces seized three Abrams tanks from the Saudi army in Al-Shabaka military base,” a commander of the popular forces Hadi al-Rotabi said on Saturday.
On Tuesday, the Yemeni forces fired a barrage of rockets at the main Saudi military base in the province of Jizan, Southern Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
The Yemeni forces fired several rockets at the main military base in the al-Khobe district of Jizan in retaliation for the kingdom’s aggression against their nation.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 242 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,969 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
