Yemeni army and allied forces have launched a missile attack against a military base in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern Jizan region, inflicting casualties on Sudanese mercenaries there.

Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported that a medium-range Qaher M-2 ballistic missile had precisely hit the al-Mosem base in Jizan on Saturday.

A military source told al-Masirah that many Sundanese mercenaries, who were present at the base, were killed and injured in the missile strike.

The al-Mosem military base had come under a similar Yemeni missile attack on Friday.

Yemeni forces also targeted other areas in Jizan, among them areas in the vicinity of the al-Tawal border crossing.

Yemen has witnessed a deadly Saudi-led war since March 2015 to eliminate the Houthi Ansarullah movement and reinstall a Riyadh-friendly former regime.
