Breaking The Siege 3: Houthis Share Details Of Large-Scale Attack On Saudi Arabia

The Houthis (Ansar Allah) have claimed responsibility for the large-scale drone and missile attack that targeted Saudi Arabia on March 25.

In a statement, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said that the large-scale attack, codenamed “Operation Breaking the Siege 3,” was a response to the Saudi-led coalition’s continuous siege on Yemen.

During the operation suicide drones, cruise and ballistic missiles were launched at vital targets and facilities of Saudi oil giant, Armaco, in the Kingdom’s capital, Riyadh, as well as in the western cities of Jeddah and Rabigh, the eastern city of Ras Tanura and the southern cities of Jizan, Najran, Dhahran, Khamis Mushait and Abha.

“The armed forces will carry out more qualitative strikes … to break the siege,” Brig. Gen. Sari said, “and it will not hesitate to expand its military operations until the aggression stops and the siege is lifted.”

The Saudi-led coalition said in a series of statements that its forces had intercepted 12 suicide drones and a ballistic missile.

“Today’s hostile attacks were launched from Sana’a International Airport [in central Yemen] and the [western Yemeni] province of al-Hudaydah,” the coalition’s last statement reads.

Despite some successful interceptions, Saudi Arabia acknowledged that a number of vital facilities, including an oil storage facility of Aramco in Jeddah, were struck. However, the kingdom didn’t report any casualties.

This was the third large-scale attack by the Houthis on Saudi Arabia in less than a month. Between March 9 and 10, the group carried out “Operation Breaking the Siege 1,” and between March 19 and 20, “Operation Breaking the Siege 2” was conducted.

The Saudi-led coalition has not responded to the Houthis’ recent attacks yet, supposedly to facilitate a new peace initiative for Yemen led by the Kingdom.

It makes for nice PR but I don’t think the Houthis can inflict much damage to Saudi oil facilities to make it hurt for the kingdom. What they have is fairly low tech and fairly inaccurate. Of the kind that would, like in WW2, require a large scale saturation attack to ensure that at least some drones were to come near the target to destroy it. A capability the Houthis sadly don’t have. I even wonder if they should waste resources on such attacks and instead use those resources to strike at Saudi forces and mercenaries in Yemen itself.

Drone and missile strikes won’t turn the tide on the battlefield. An increase in Brent crude prices and an angry phone call from London or Washington will.

Lawrence of Arabia

Yes, but the technology and capability of these missiles will increase as Iranian technical assistance to the Houthis grows. If the Saudis have a working brain, they will see the handwriting on the wall, and make peace now….

Believe me the Saudis do not like the attacks coming from Yemen. For a country like Saudi Arabia even a stone let alone a Yemeni missile or drone attack is seen as a big problem and humiliation. Being targeted by an enemy that you despise is not easy to deal with. The Saudi master feels as if he is being slapped on the face by his servant.

The attack continues. Very extensive.
