2 Other Saudi Warships Were Destroyed by Yemen's Forces

The Saudi warships were reportedly two destroyers and were targeted by the Yemeni army missiles in the Al-Mukha coastal waters in the province of Ta’iz on Tuesday.

According to the Yemeni popular forces the sunken ships had repeatedly fired rockets at the residential areas in Ta’iz province, causing casualties and destruction there.

So far the Yemen’s army has destroyed ten warships of the Saudi-led coalition forces in Bab al-Mandab Strait in the last several months. Other Saudi battleships that were approaching Yemen’s coasts retreated fast following the attack.

For several months now the Saudi-led forces have been trying to win control over the coastal regions near the waterway. The developinf of the battle is as follows:

  • On December 11, the Yemeni forces destroyed a Saudi warship in the Bab-Mandab Strait.
  • On December 5, the Yemeni forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait.
  • On November 25, the Yemeni forces targeted and destroyed a Saudi warship in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait.
  • On November 15, Yemeni forces destroyed a Saudi-led coalition warship al-Mukha coast.
  • On November 7, Yemeni forces fired rockets at a Saudi-led coalition warship and destroyed it near al-Mukha coast.
  • On October 25, the Yemeni forces hit and destroyed another Saudi warship in Bab al-Mandab Strait
  • On October 11, another ship which belonged to the Egyptian army and named al-Mahrousa was destroyed by Yemeni missiles in the coastal waters near al-Mukha coast.
  • On October 9, Yemeni army and popular forces also fired missiles at a Saudi warship, and destroyed it in Bab al-Mandab Strait.

The warship was wrecked off the Southwestern coast of Yemen, in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, which makes the connection between the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

Illustrates how vulnerable to missiles surface ships are. These are not even your top notch hyper speed missiles.

It only ilustrates that it’s easy to spread nonsense on the web.


I was commenting on the potency of missiles and their threat to warships not the veracity of the numbers. The Israelis suffered damage to a surface ship from a missile and a number of sources suggest that a number of Saudi vessels have been damaged.

That Israeli gun boat was heavily damaged and many of its crew went “missing” Good job Hezbollah.

John LaRochelle

Whose side are you on?

Ondrej Nekola

The “don’t spread bullshit” one.

– there is no such a think as a battleship any more – no details and unbelievable number of ships destroyed with no details and no verification

Roasted Piglet

Probably a non-native English speaker using the term “battleship” for “warship”.

Garron Garron

The article reads “destroyers”. The picture could be a destroyer, at least a corvette or frigate sized ship. In either case I cheer the sinking of the Saudi terrorist ship. Good job Yemen.

Ondrej Nekola

Once more – the image is no proof of sinking of an Saudi ship. It’s an old image stolen from dailymail.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
