Yemeni Armed Force

Yemeni Armed Forces have launched massive missile and drone strikes against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia, only a week after they carried out a series of attacks against the UAE in retaliation for its involvement in the devastating US-Saudi aggression on Yemen.

Hawzah News Agency –The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces announced that the Yemeni Rocketry Force and Air Force carried out a large-scale operation, dubbed Yemen Hurricane II (E'sar Al-Yemen 2) , against sensitive targets deep inside the UAE and Saudi Arabia, in response to the escalation of the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression and its crimes against Yemenis.

"Yemeni Army pounded al-Dhafra Air Base [located approximately 32 kilometers south of Abu Dhabi], as well as other designated sites on the outskirts of the Emirati capital with a number of Zulfiqar ballistic missiles," Brigadier General Yahya Sare'e said at a press conference in the capital Sana’a on Monday.

Saree noted that important targets in Dubai were struck with indigenous long-endurance Sammad-3 (Invincible-3) unmanned aerial vehicles.

He added that the Yemeni Armed Forces also used squadrons of Sammad-1 and Qasef-2K combat drones to hit a number of military camps in Sharurah town of Saudi Arabia’s southern region of Najran.

“Additionally, a number of vital targets and strategic sites in [the kingdom’s] Jizan and Asir regions were targeted with several ballistic missiles,” Sare'e said, emphasizing that the designated locations were hit with high precision missiles.

“Yemeni Armed Forces are fully prepared to ramp up their operations in case the enemy raises the ante,” he warned, adding, “We renew our advice to foreign companies and investors in the UAE to leave the country as it has become unsafe.”

“The UAE will be constantly targeted as long as it continues its aggression and siege against the Yemeni nation,” the spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces asserted.

The US-Saudi-Emirati aggression has lately ramped up its airstrikes against various regions across Yemen.

At least 90 people were killed when a US-Saudi strike hit a detention center in the northern province of Sa’adah on Friday, and nearly two dozen were killed in the capital of Sana’a in an operation on Tuesday.

On Friday night, the spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces called on foreign companies to pull out of the UAE following a series of retaliatory strikes against the Persian Gulf country.

“In the aftermath of the crimes committed by the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression against Yemeni people, we advise foreign companies in the Emirates to leave because they have invested in an unsafe country,” Yahya Sare'e said in a statement posted on his Twitter page on Friday night.

He added, “The UAE would grow more insecure as long as its rulers continue their military aggression against Yemen.”

Yemeni forces carried out retaliatory airstrikes against strategic facilities deep inside the UAE on January 17, using domestically-manufactured combat drones and ballistic missiles.

Saudi Arabia launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, leading a military campaign consisting of its regional allies, including the UAE.

The kingdom estimated at the beginning of the war that it would come out victorious within just a few weeks.

However, the war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases there.
