SANA'A, Dec. 14 (Saba) – The missile force of the army fired on Monday a Tochka missile at the enemy operations center in Bab al-Mandab in Taiz province, killing hundreds of the enemy soldiers.

The official spokesman of the armed forces Sharaf Luqman confirmed to Saba that the rocket hit his target with high accuracy causing large losses in lives and gear to the Saudi-led coalition forces.

"The preliminary information affirmed the death and injury of hundreds of the enemy soldiers and mercenaries in Bab al-Mandab, including foreigners," the spokesman said.

Nearly 146 bodies mostly charred were transferred to Aden city and Amran camp, and a medical ship belonging to the aggression coalition reached near the coast of Aden in an attempt to help the evacuation and treatment of the injured, Luqman added.

The initial toll of the targeting of the enemy command in Bab al-Mandab among the Blackwater company forces is 42 dead and 12 military and armored vehicles of the company were damaged, as well as the destruction of the coalition command buildings, two Patriot systems, three Apaches, and 40 military vehicles, he elaborated.

A Qahir 1 rocket was launched also on Jizan Regional Airport, Luqman said.

Targeting the enemy operations command in Bab al-Mandab and Jizan Regional Airport comes in less than 24 hours from targeting Khalid Bin Abdul-Aziz Air Base in Khamis Mushayt with Qahir 1 missile, which entered the service for the first time after it was improved locally.
