SANAA (Dispatches) – The Yemeni army will further surprise Saudi Arabia and the UAE in case they continue attacks against the impoverished Arab country, the spokesman for Yemen's Armed Forces has warned.
The remarks by Brigadier General Yahya Saree came after drone operations by Houthi Ansarullah fighters against Malik Khalid airbase and Khamis Mashit region in Saudi Arabia's Assir region targeted the airbase's advanced radars and remote-control rooms.
He also warned the Saudi-led coalition that the Yemeni army is capable of conducting concurrent operations, adding that they are extending the range of their attacks.
"We advise the Saudi and UAE governments to stop attacks. We have many surprises which will be revealed in the next few days," Saree underlined.
Yemen's Armed Forces launched fresh drone attacks on an airport in Saudi Arabia’s Southwestern Jizan region.
"Qasif-K2 combat drones targeted drone bunkers and stations at the Jizan airport after collecting intelligence on the sites," Yemen’s al-Masirah TV channel reported on Sunday.
Al-Masirah quoted a military source as saying that Saudi Arabia had converted the Jizan airport into a military base.
The Yemeni Army and popular forces have carried out several drone attacks on Jizan and Najran airports over the past few weeks to retaliate for the war that Saudi Arabia has been leading on Yemen since March 2015.
Last month, a Yemeni drone targeted a major oil pumping station deep inside Saudi Arabia, forcing state crude giant Aramco to temporarily shut down pumping operations at the site.
Meantime, Yemen's Ansarullah movement announced late last week that its troops had shot down a US-made drone in the Western region of Yemen.
Also, Yemeni Defense Minister Major-General Mohammad Nasser al-Atifi visited his country's armed forces in Southern Saudi Arabia's Najran region for the first time, a move believed by experts to be a humiliation of Riyadh.
While visiting the Saudi forces, Major-General al-Atifi congratulated the Yemeni Army and popular forces on their high morale to face the Saudi aggressors.
The Yemeni defense minister underlined that the Yemeni Army and popular forces are very close to the city of Najran in Southern Saudi Arabia, and said that more victories are imminent.
"The Yemeni forces are just few kilometers away from Najran city and its airport," al-Atifi said.
The Yemeni defense minister reiterated the Yemeni Army and popular forces will never abandon defending their homeland as they were very close to victory over the Saudi aggressors.
