UK missile test failure 'covered up' by government

The government "covered up" a malfunctioned unarmed test of Britain's Trident missile system, The Sunday Times reported.

The Trident II D5 ballistic missiles are carried by Britain's four Vanguard-class submarines, and they are able to deliver thermonuclear warheads from multiple independently-targetable re-entry vehicles (MIRVs).

In a front page article, the newspaper says that the failed test took place shortly before Theresa May became prime minister, "but she omitted any mention of the failed test when she persuaded parliament to spend 40 billion pounds on new Trident submarines in her first big Commons speech on July 18."

During the test, the unarmed missile "may have veered off in the wrong direction towards America" after being launched from a British submarine off the coast of Florida in June last year, according to the article.

However, Sky News quoted its Defence Correspondent Alistair Bunkall as saying that he had been told that the earlier report about the missile veering towards the United States is not true.

The revelation of the missile test failure has put pressure on May's government. But the prime minister did not directly respond to the issue when she was questioned by BBC.

She told BBC that she had "absolute faith" in Britain's nuclear weapons system despite reports about the failed missile test.

Yemen launches major offensive on Saudi bases

Yemeni army soldiers, backed by fighters from Popular Committees, have launched heavy missile and artillery attacks against several Saudi border military bases, inflicting significant casualties and damage on them, a report says.

According to a report by Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network, the Yemeni forces on Sunday carried out a major offensive against Tabat al-Hamrah, al-Qamamah, Qaem Zabid, al-Shabaka, al-Kers bases and the strategic al-Ghavieh military camp, destroying or damaging many armored vehicles and military equipment.

The surprise attacks also killed and wounded dozens of Saudi troops, it further said, adding that a number of senior Saudi military officials were also slain in the offensive. The operation forced the remaining Saudi troops to flee their bases, leave behind some burning arsenals and taking refuge in the town of al-Khobe in the kingdom’s southwestern province of Jizan.

The Yemeni forces, however, managed to seize a considerable amount of weapons from the bases during the attacks, which lasted from early morning to the afternoon.

The Yemeni forces also killed at least 14 Saudi mercenaries and injured 22 more during a battle near the strategic Bab al-Mandab strait, in southwest Yemen.

Syrian forces liberate 4 villages east of Aleppo

Syrian army soldiers and fighters from allied popular defense groups have made more gains against members of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the country’s northwestern province of Aleppo, pushing terrorists out of four villages.

The media bureau of operations command for the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement announced in a statement on Sunday that Syrian soldiers and their allies had captured the villages of Sora, Moran, Surja al-Saghira and Surja al-Kabira, located about 16 kilometers southwest of al-Bab town, where Turkish-backed Takfiri militants are active.

On August 24, 2016, the Turkish air force and special ground forces kicked off Operation Euphrates Shield inside Syria in a purported bid to support the Free Syrian Army militants and rid the border area of Daesh terrorists and fighters from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Democratic Union Party (PYD).

The offensive was launched in coordination with the US-led military coalition, which has purportedly been fighting Daesh extremists since 2014.
