Yemeni forces have launched a massive military operation against Saudi Arabian installations.
The forces of the popular movement Ansarollah (Hutis), fighting in Yemen against the government of Abdo Rabbu Mansur Hadi, have launched a series of drone attacks against Saudi Arabian facilities, according to Masirah TV, quoted by Europa Press.
The channel Masirah TV has assured, quoting military sources, under condition of anonymity, the Army has launched a massive military operation against the Saudi Arabian facilities. At least seven Yemeni Army drones bombed vital facilities in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
“This great military operation is the response to the continued aggression and blockade of our people and we are prepared to perpetrate more,” the source warned.
Saudi Arabia has not pronounced on this information, which comes a day after it confirmed that two of its cargo ships were attacked off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.
Yemeni forces have also warned that they are ready to launch more attacks against Saudi Arabia if Riyadh and its allies do not end their aggressions against Yemen. However, no further details have been provided.
According to analysts, today’s attacks also represent a response to the militarisation by the US of the Middle East region and its “unconditional” support for Al Saud in his military campaign he has been launching since March 2015 against the poorest country in the Arab world.
Last Thursday, the Hutis bombed the port city of Yanbu in northwestern Saudi Arabia, according to Masirah TV.
In this regard, they warn of new military operations by Yemeni forces in the coming days, if Riyadh and its allies, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), continue their aggression against Yemen and point out that even U.S. forces may be targets of such attacks.
Saudi Arabia’s bombing campaign has killed more than 60,000 people in the poorest country in the Arab world, according to a report by the Data on the Location and Events of Armed Conflict project.
