Yemen’s Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e has the revealed details of the Yemeni missile attack that caused significant damage to Abha International Airport in Asir region, southwestern Saudi Arabia in the early hours of Wednesday.

The Missile Forces launched a winged cruise missile, which hit its target with high accuracy, Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said in a press statement.

The cruise missile is of a, unknown and highly advanced type that has never been seen in action before, and has never even been officially revealed during its testing phase before. While Yemeni forces have released an infographic about their new missile weapon after the attack, so far the name of the model is still unknown.

Yahya Sare’e further confirmed that the missile completely slipped past all US-made detection and air defence systems that Saudi Arabia used.

“The winged missile hit the control tower of the airport directly, causing its destruction and putting it out of service,” the spokespman of the Armed Forces stated.

This strike reportedly caused a widespread state of fear and panic among the Saudis, as well as causing a great confusion in their ranks.

The missile attack comes in retaliation for the continued Saudi crimes and unjust blockade imposed against the Yemeni people. The fact that a wholly new, never before seen and highly advanced cruise missile was used, comes as proof of earlier promises by Yemen that retaliatory strikes against the Saudi-led coalition will only get worse.

Yahya Sare’e vowed that even more painful strikes will be directed at the Saudi-led coalition, stating that: “Even greater is coming”.

US defense system couldn’t intercept missile fired at Saudi Abha airport: Yemeni Army

The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces says US-built surface-to-air missile defense systems stationed at Abha International Airport in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern province of Asir could not intercept the cruise missile fired by army troopers and allied fighters from Popular Committees at the strategic facility.

Speaking during a press conference in the capital Sana’a on Wednesday, Brigadier General Yahya Saree said the winged projectile had hit the designated target with great precision.

He noted that the missile hit the observation tower in the airport, which is about 200 kilometers north of the border with Yemen and serves domestic and regional routes, causing significant disruption to air travel.

Saree pointed out that the missile attack on Abha airport is part of retaliatory measures by Yemeni soldiers and their allies in the face of the Saudi-led coalition’s crimes against Yemeni people.

Meanwhile, the alliance said in a statement that it would make a firm response to the missile attack by Yemeni forces on Abha airport in southern Saudi Arabia, which wounded 26 people.

The statement went on to say that the projectile hit the arrivals hall at the airport, causing material damage.

Three women and two children were among the wounded, who were of Saudi, Yemeni and Indian nationalities, it said. Eight people were taken to hospital while most were treated on site.

On Tuesday, Saree 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.

“Thank God, we are capable of carrying out more than one operation at the same time,” he said, adding that Yemeni forces’ “list of targets is increasing day by day.”

The high-ranking Yemeni military official stressed that the Yemeni forces’ operation is well documented with photos and videos.

“Our surprises will be uncovered soon. God willing we will adopt the equation of an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” Saree pointed out.

On Sunday, the spokesman for Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement said the airports of countries involved in the devastating military aggression and blockade against his impoverished homeland would be targeted as long as the embargo imposed by the Saudi-led coalition on Sana’a International Airport remains in place.

“We had repeatedly informed the United Nations about the health condition of [the Secretary-General of the Union of Popular Forces] Mohamed Abdel Rahman al-Rubai, who required treatment abroad. Unfortunately, the world body gave in to Saudi Arabia’s demands, and could not do anything to lift the siege on Sana’a Airport,” Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network cited Mohammed Abdul-Salam as writing on his official Twitter page.

The Houthi spokesman added, “This is something that cannot be tolerated at all.”

“Given the criminal siege on Sana’a International Airport and the failure of the UN to take proper measures [aimed at resolution of the issue]…, the countries of the (Saudi-led) aggression must know that their airports are within our firing range as the attacks would be the most efficient way to end the blockade,” Abdul-Salam pointed out.

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.
