Spokesman of the Armed Forces of Yemen, Brigadier-General Sharaf Luqman, has stated that the year 2018 will bring about a remarkable evolution in Yemen’s military capacities, both in the fields of air defence and the missile programme.
General Luqman said this during a press conference on Wednesday, in which he further stated that the coming year would also see a high level of further improvement of both technical and manufacturing capabilities of the Yemeni military in all fields. He added that the strength of the Yemeni defence will be of a level unseen ever before in previous years.
As an example of Yemen’s increased military prowess, Sharaf Luqman hinted that the latest Qaher M-2 missile strike on a gathering of Saudi-paid mercenaries in the al-Khayami camp in Taiz, which killed dozens of heavily-armed Saudi troops, was just a small taste of what Yemen is capable of. He added that this operation was the result of a highly successful and unique military and intelligence operation conducted completely by Yemeni forces.
