Yemeni forces have targeted an Aramco Saudi oil refinery in Yanbu province with a long-range ballistic missile in retaliation for the Saudi-led coalition’s ongoing aggression against Yemen.
According to the Arabic-language al-Masirah television network on Saturday, Yemeni forces used a Scud-type Borkan-2 (Volcano-2) in the attack on the Saudi refinery.
Here is the video Yemeni forces released to prove their claim:
Yemen’s popular forces have long been working on developing their own long-range ballistic missiles called the Borkan H-2 aka “Volcano H-2” which has a range of nearly 900 miles.
Yemen’s resistance has launched other long-range missiles at military targets deep inside Saudi Arabia before. In May, a Yemeni missile targeted Riyadh as a “welcome gift” for Donald Trump’s visit that same day.
Yemeni forces have also successfully struck coalition fighter jets en route to drop bombs and several coalition warships.
The attack on the Saudi oil refinery was carried out at night as to avoid any civilian casualties, according to the Geopolitics Alert website.
In the past 850 days, Saudi Arabia has completely destroyed nearly all civilian infrastructure, massacred thousands of civilians, and triggered a cholera epidemic the likes of which the world has never seen.
Saudi Arabia has been leading the campaign against Yemen to reinstate the former government and crush the Houthi Ansarullah movement.
The campaign has seriously damaged the country’s infrastructure. Local Yemeni sources have put the death toll from the Saudi war at over 12,000, including many women and children.
