RNA - The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said late on Monday that the country’s forces had launched a military operation against Saudi troops and their allies in Mukha port in Yemen’s Southern province of Ta'iz, according to Yemen's Al-Masirah news website.
Saree added that the Yemeni forces used nine ballistic missiles and more than 20 drones to target Saudi forces.
The Yemeni general stated that some 350 Saudi forces and their mercenaries were either killed or wounded in the operation and a large number of Saudi armored vehicles and weapons were also confiscated.
"The operations of our forces came in response to the violations of aggression in the West coast," the armed forces spokesman added, noting that the number of ceasefire breaches had reached more than 30,000 cases.
"We will not stand idly by and we will respond strongly to the aggression, violations and violations of the enemy," al-Masirah news website quoted Saree as saying.
According to Fars News Agency, the operation was the latest in what the Yemenis call retaliatory attacks against Saudi Arabia over its years-long war on their country.
Yemen, the poorest country on the Arabian Peninsula, has been battered by what the UN describes as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, which has resulted from a devastating campaign launched by Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies in March 2015.
