For Second Day In Row: Houthis Target Saudi-led Coalition Troops In Western Yemen With New “Ballistic” Missile

Illustrative image

On June 30, the Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had launched a new short range “ballistic missile” at a gathering of Saudi-led coalition troops on the western coast of Yemen. A day earlier, coalition forcers were targeted with a missile of the very same type.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on both missile strikes yet. Furthermore, no hits or interceptions have been reported by any Yemeni source.

The Yemeni al-Masirah TV reported that the Yemeni Missile Force will reveal the new short range “ballistic missile” in the upcoming days. According to the pro-Houthis TV channel, the new missile was developed with “pure Yemeni experiences.”

On March 22, the Yemeni Missile Forces revealed a “short range ballistic missile” named Bader-1. Later experts determined that the Badr-1 is a copy of the Iranian Fajr-3 artillery rocket as both rockets appear to have similar diameter and length.

The new Yemeni “ballistic missile” may be an upgraded variety of Badr-1 with a heaver warhead and a shorter range – Badr-1 range is over 40km – or even a copy of the more modern Iranian Fajr-5 artillery rocket.

    Saudis and UAEs cannot impose their puppet on Yemen nation.

    Another positive component to this news, there’s no way to aim a short range missile north of Yemen and miss.

    Hello Admin, there is a problem with this site. I have just installed a business level Deep Packet Inspection product with duel fire wall and a host of other business level security features in my home for better security.
    Anyway as I just started my PC, and opened my browser. The first and (only) site I have just opened is this site SouthFront. Upon opening it I got a warning that this site is running in the background a process at -(http://counter.yadro.ru)- that is categorized as Spyware and Adware
    I was wondering is this deliberate? Or is it from some advertisement?
    Or is this some intelligence agency trying to gather information about all visitors?
    I just wanted to share this information to help inform those who run this site as I care about security for everyone.

      And here is some of what they said about this…
      – “This is not a browser redirect virus. It’s infected to web servers and occasionally infected domains will be redirected to this domain counter.yadro.ru by injecting parasite code (Java script/Php etc etc). Does not seem to be a local pc infection.”

      You can do nothing on it since its in a remote web server that is redirected.

    This is exactly the type of weapon the Houthis need. They need to be able to fire at the coalition forces on the narrow coastline from a safe distance to avoid air strikes.
