Rocketry Force in Yemen unveiled a new domestically produced missile, “Somoud” (Steadfastness) which has a high destructive ability.
The move, announced in a statement by the Rocketry Force, is a part of efforts to upgrade Yemen’s arsenal in a bid to confront the Saudi-led aggression against the Arab impoveriched country.
“Somoud” is 4-meter-long and has 300-kg warhead, Yemeni sources said, adding that the missile has a range of 38 kms.
The missile is named “Somoud”, referring to the steadfastness of the Yemeni people, the Rocketry Force said in the statement.
Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
