A spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces announced a missile attack on a Saudi airbase in the south of the country.

Iran PressMiddle East: According to Al-Mayadin, Yahya Saree on Thursday night said: "The Yemeni Army and Popular Committees targeted the King Khalid Air Base in Khamis Mushait, Saudi Arabia, with a ballistic missile, which hit its target accurately.

He added: "This attack was carried out in response to the recent increase of attacks by the Saudi coalition on Yemeni soil."

Meanwhile, Al-Masira reported that, following the Saudi coalition airstrikes on Ma'rib province, Saudi fighter jets bombed the city of Sirwah in the province 25 times in the past few hours.

The airstrikes in Ma'rib province came as Yemeni army forces and popular committees took control of the Kofal strategic camp, one of the largest Saudi military bases west of Ma'rib.

Experts believe that the Yemeni militant forces, by taking control of this military camp, are in fact on the verge of taking control of the entire city of Ma'rib, so this military achievement is very important for Yemenis.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in order to bring the country’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crush the Ansarullah movement.

Since then, over 100,000 people have been killed, according to the US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED). 219
