Saudi-led coalition destroys Scud missile carrier near border
The carrier, belonging to Iran-backed Houthi militia and its ally Saleh forces, was destroyed by the coalition after studying their movements
Saudi-led coalition has destroyed a Scud missile carrier near the Yemeni-Saudi border, Al Arabiya News Channel reported on Sunday.
The carrier, belonging to Iran-backed Houthi militia and its ally deposed Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh forces, was destroyed by the coalition after studying their movements, the channel reported.
It said the carrier was heading towards Saudi but did not specify where.
Meanwhile, Yemeni Popular Resistance forces and those loyal to the internationally recognized President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi made advances in Sirwah west of Maarib city after heavy clashes with Houthi and Saleh militias.
Marib is located about 120 km east of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.
The Houthis militias swept Hadi from power in February. Forces loyal to Hadi have been locked in eight months of civil war with the Houthis who continue to remain in control of Sanaa.
