TEHRAN, Jun 12 - Rocketry Force of the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees announced, at dawn on Wednesday, the launch of a cruise missile at Abha International Airport.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - A source in the Rocketry Force confirmed that the missile hit its target accurately, asserting that air traffic has been halted around the airport.

Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare'e has called on Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to put an immediate end to their military aggression against Yemen, or embrace for major surprises.

In mid-May, the 9th of Ramadan, seven Yemeni drones crossed the Saudi border and traveled for hundreds of kilometers to launch a major operation against the strategic oil facility in Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s devastating military aggression and siege of the country. Following the attack, Saudi Arabia stopped pumping crude oil on the major pipeline across the country.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement.

The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the Saudi-led war has claimed the lives of over 60,000 Yemenis since January 2016.

The war has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. The UN says over 24 million Yemenis are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including 10 million suffering from extreme levels of hunger.
