Dozens of Saudi troops have
reportedly been killed and injured in a retaliatory ballistic missile
attack by against a military base in ’s southwestern
region of Jizan.

The Yemeni army and Popular Committees
launched a Tochka ballistic missile at the military camp in the Ahd
al-Masarha district of Jizan on Monday morning, Yemen’s al-Massira
television quoted a military source as saying.
The military source
said anonymously that the camp housed command centers, a pad for Apache
helicopters and scores of vehicles and trucks loaded with munitions.
According
to the report, the rocket successfully hit the target, destroying the
camp and leaving scores of Saudi troops dead and injured.
Saudi
Arabia launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26, 2015,
in a bid to bring Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi — who has resigned as Yemen’s
president — back to power.
More than 9,400 people have been killed and at least 16,000 others injured since the onset of the aggression.
The
Saudi strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the country’s facilities
and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.
Meanwhile,
UN-brokered peace talks continue between Houthi Ansarullah fighters and
their allies on the one side and loyalists to Hadi on the other.
The
first round of the peace talks on Yemen started on April 21 in Kuwait,
and was held against the backdrop of a shaky ceasefire that had taken
effect on April 10.
