  • Yemeni army hits Saudi military base

The Yemeni army has fired missiles at Saudi military positions in Najran and Jizan, in southern Saudi Arabia.

Iran PressMiddle East: Yemeni military units launched a domestically-developed Zelzal-1 (Earthquake-1) ballistic missile, targeting a gathering of Saudi soldiers in Najran and Jizan.

Yemeni forces also targeted Saudi-backed mercenaries in Al-Hamad base and killed and injured a large number of them, according to Yemen's Arabic-language al-Masirah television network.

Meanwhile, United Nations observers have met with representatives of Yemen’s former government, which the Saudi-led invasion seeks to restore, and the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement, which defends the country against the invaders.

According to an agreement reached in Sweden, the two sides must withdraw their forces from the port city of Hudaydah, and hand it over to UN observers.

According to the world body, Yemen is suffering from the most severe famine in more than 100 years.
