Saudi Apache helicopters on Thursday night bombed military sites in the Yemeni mountains of Tawr al-Hashim that are under the control of Houthi militias and fighters allied to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The militias had situated themselves in these mountains to carry out military attacks on the Saudi border town of Najran.

Military sources reported that the militias began their attack by launching thermal missiles as well as mortars on Saudi military sites and some populated areas.

Saudi Arabia has around 92 AHD64 Apache helicopters.

The Apache can target more than 128 precise targets within one minute. Enemies won’t be able to spot the aircraft at night during an operation.

It has the ability to hit targets with extreme precision; it reacts quickly and can attack from close range to destroy and undermine the enemy forces.
