Several Saudi-backed militants killed in Yemen’s retaliatory drone raid

Yemeni armed forces, led by the Houthi Ansarullah movement, have launched a retaliatory drone attack against a gathering of Saudi-backed militants loyal to the ex-regime in the country’s southern province of Lahej, killing several of them.

Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network said the attack targeted “the leadership of the invaders” on Thursday. It said several militants were killed in the raid, without specifying the number.

Saudi-owned broadcaster Al-Arabiya said five were killed and several others injured when the combat drone struck a military base in al-Anad district, where a military parade was taking place.

Some 12 more Saudi-backed forces were also wounded in the retaliatory attack, according to the report.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the former Riyadh-backed government back to power.

The invaders have, however, failed to achieve their objective in the face of strong resistance by Yemeni Houthi fighters and allied armed forces.
