Yemeni army and popular forces have unveiled a domestically made ballistic missile, named 'Badr P-1', intended to precisely hit specific targets as the Saudi regime presses ahead with its aerial bombardment campaign against Yemen.

Iran Press / Middle East: The media bureau of Yemen’s Operations Command Center, in a statement released on Saturday, announced that the short-range and solid-propellant Badr P-1 missile is an upgraded version of Badr-1 missile, and has a pinpoint accuracy of 3 meters, Shiite news reported.

Earlier in the day, Yemeni soldiers and allied fighters from Popular Committees struck the al-Mostahaddeth base in Yemen’s western coastal province of Hudaydah with the same ballistic missile, killing and injuring a large number of invading Saudi and Sudanese troops.
