Insurgent spokesman Yahya Saria said the Riyadh attacks were a response from the Hussites to the constant attacks and the prolonged blockade of the country.
Yemeni Husite insurgents launched a bomb and missile attack on Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. The official spokesman for the rebels, Yahya Saria, stated that the attacks on Riyadh were the response of the Hussites to the constant attacks and the prolonged blockade of the country.
He promised more attacks if Saudi Arabia continued its aggression against Yemen. According to the militants’ speaker, they managed to hit a very important target in the city.
Three Samad3 drones and a Dul-Faqqar ballistic missile were used for the attack.
The Hussites took over the Yemeni capital Sanah and most cities in 2014 after overthrowing the Saudi-backed Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi government.
A Western-backed coalition led by Saudi Arabia intervened in an effort to bring Hadi back to power, but the war, which claimed 100,000 lives, lasted for years.
Earlier, supporters of Yemen’s Ansar Allah movement, the so-called Hussites, fired a rocket at the airport of the city of Abkhaz in Saudi Arabia, wounding 26 people.
