Yemeni revolutionaries carried out large-scale attack deep in Saudi Arabia late Monday, hitting several targets across the Kingdom.
Al Masirah television announced the attack early Tuesday, with Saudi Press Agency claiming earlier on Monday night that Saudi air defenses intercepted at least four ballistic missiles launched by Houthi rebels at Riyadh, Najran and Jazan, and also destroyed eight explosives-laden drones.
Later on Tuesday, Yemeni Army Spoeksman Brigadier General Yahya Saree described the attack as the largest ever on the Saudi capital.
“Yemeni Army carried out the largest attack ever on the Saudi capital, ‘Balance of Deterrence-4 Op’,” Saree said in a press conference.
He said that a large number of ballistic and winged missiles hit Saudi Defense Ministry, Intelligence Ministry, Salman airbase along with other military targets in Riyadh, Jizan and Najran.
Drones laden with explosives also took place in the operation, the spokesman announced, adding that the operation “comes in retaliation to Saudi-led aggression and blockade on Yemen.”
