A ballistic missile attack has targeted a Saudi military base inside Saudi Arabia, killing six soldiers, Press TV reported.

The missile attack killed six Saudi Arabian soldiers at the Al-Shabakah military base, located in southern Saudi Arabia’s Najran region.

This attack follows yesterday’s Houthi sniper attack which killed six Saudi soldiers near the Hajjar province along the Yemen-Saudi border.

The Houthis frequently conduct incursions inside Saudi Arabia, using missiles, snipers and ballistic weapons.

A Saudi-led coalition has used airstrikes to support militias backed by Hadi and international troops to recapture the northern part of the country and stop the Houthi advance to the south.
