The spokesman of the Armed Forces of Houthis Brigadier General Yahya Saree said:“The missile Force launched a ballistic missile, Badr-F, on a recently constructed camp for the Saudi army and mercenaries south of Saqam off Najran,”.
"The ballistic missile hit its target accurately, pointing out that this strike came after a precise intelligence operation of their gatherings," Saree confirmed.
He pointed out that the strike caused dozens of deaths and injuries among the Saudi soldiers and mercenaries, causing a state of confusion in their side, noting that the wounded and dead were transferred to hospitals in Najran.
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 (Ansar Allah) group.
Since mid-May, Houthis have intensified firing ballistic missiles and launching drone attacks on Saudi territory "in reply to coalition airstrikes that target Yemeni civilians and infrastructure."
Last May, Houthis said they had a "bank of 300 vital targets in Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates."
