Al Manar reported:

The rocketry force of the Yemeni army announced launching a ballistic missile (Borkan 1) onto the Saudi interior front.

Yemeni sources reported that Borkan 1 is a Russian Scud missile which has been developed by Yemeni military experts and that it covers a distance range of 800 kilometers.

The sources asserted that the rocket hit a Saudi military target in Taif city.

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

Riyadh launched the campaign against Ansarullah revolutionaries (known as Houthis) in a bid to restore power to fugitive ex-president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.

Shoebat has video of the Scud launch.
