The Houthi group (Ansar Allah) said on Thursday It launched a long-range ballistic missile towards al-Dammam, east of Saudi Arabia, in a remarkable development of Houthi targets inside the Saudi Depth.
There was no comment from the Arab or Saudi coalition forces on what the Houthis said until the time of writing this news.
The military spokesman of Houthis Brigadier General Yahya Saree said in a statement that the missile force of the forces of the group "fired this morning a long-range ballistic missile towards important military targets in the Saudi depth in al-Dammam."
Saree did not specify the "Type" of the rocket but he pointed out that his specifications and details of the operation will be revealed at a press conference soon.
He described the process as "a new and practical experience of the Yemeni missile force," comes in response to the crimes of aggression forces and siege and their persistence in the aggression and the shedding of Yemeni blood "
The military spokesman of the Houthis urged Foreign companies and citizens to stay away from military targets and vital because they have become legitimate targets for their forces and may be targeted at any moment as long as the aggression and the siege are continuing on the Republic of Yemen."
Al-Dammam is the capital of the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia and is characterized as a commercial and residential center and includes administrative bodies of the region and government departments.
Recently, the Houthis group has intensified continuous attacks by drones, ballistic missiles on Saudi and Yemeni forces and vital Saudi targets, most notably airports in Saudi cities near Yemen.
Houthi forces said mid-May they had a target bank of 300 vital and military targets in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis had ousted the internationally-recognized government late in 2014.
Saudi Arabia has been leading a military coalition in Yemen since 26 March 2015, in support of forces loyal to President Hadi to retake areas controlled by Houthi group (Ansar Allah).
