Vice-Spokesman of the Yemeni Army Brigadier General Aziz Rashed said that the country’s forces have used an advanced secret weapon in their recent attack on a Saudi-led coalition warship in the Southern waters of Yemen.
Rashed said that the army forces targeted the warship of the Saudi-led coalition carrying Sudanese military men off the coast of Mukha port city, and added, “The Yemeni naval force opened fire at the Saudi-led coalition warship that wanted to enter our waters to transfer Sudanese soldiers to the coast of Mukha port.”
“Our forces used a unique weapon whose details and features are secret,” the brigadier general disclosed.
Rashed further added that the Sudanese military forces were to join the coalition as reinforcement troops.
He pointed out that the Yemeni forces’ missile hit the target (the warship) very precisely.
Military source confirmed on Monday that a Saudi-led coalition warship was targeted by the Yemeni forces off the coast of Mukha port city.
Al-Masireh tv network quoted the military source as saying that the Yemeni navy forces managed to target a warship of the Saudi-led coalition off the coast of Mukha port city in Ta’iz Province.
The sources further added that as Saudi Arabia’s deadly campaign prevented the Yemeni patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, and continued hitting residential areas across Yemen, the Yemeni navy forces, in a retaliatory move, targeted their warship.
More than 10 warships have been hit by the Yemeni army and popular committees since the start of the military operations conducted in reaction to the Riyadh and its allies aggression.
Also over 10 military boats have so far been targeted during the period by the Yemeni forces.
The Yemeni army and Popular Committees last hit a Saudi-led warship in waters off the Southwestern province of Ta’iz in mid-June.
Local military sources announced that the warship was in the Yemeni territorial water, near the port city of Mukha in Ta’iz, when was targeted by the allied forces confronting the Saudi-led aggression on Yemen.
A warship of the Saudi-led forces was also destroyed mid-March after hitting a sea-mine laid by the Yemeni army and popular forces in the coastal waters of Ta’iz province.
“The Saudi-led warship was destroyed in the city of al-Mukha in Ta’iz province in Southwestern Yemen,” a Yemeni military source said, adding that all crew members of the warship were killed in the explosion.
