  •  Yemen says fired batch of ballistic missiles into Israeli-occupied territories in support of Gaza

Yemen’s Army says it has fired a batch of ballistic missiles at Israeli military positions in support of Gaza’s resistance.

Yemen’s Armed Forces said in a statement on Wednesday they targeted Umm al-Rashrash city in the southern part of the occupied Palestine.

The statement vowed Yemen will continue military operations against the occupied territories until the aggression against Gaza stops.

It said they’ll also keep preventing Israeli ships from navigating in the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea.

Earlier, the Israeli regime said it had shot down one ballistic missile over the Red Sea using the Arrow air system.

Media reports said the incident set off sirens in Umm al-Rashrash, called Eilat by the regime, though it said the missile did not enter the occupied territories' airspace.

Yemeni forces have launched several ballistic missiles and drones at the Israeli-occupied territories since the beginning of the Israeli war on Gaza in October.

The Yemeni armed forces said last Sunday that they fired missiles at two Israeli ships in the Red Sea.
