Houthis Attack Saudi-led Coalition Troops With Two Suicide Drones

Qasef-1 suicide UAV

On September 22, two Qasef-1 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of the Yemeni Air Force [loyal to the Houthis] targeted a gathering of Saudi-backed fighters on the western coast of Yemen and a headquarters of the Saudi-led coalition on the Yemeni island of Seven Brothers in the Red Sea.

A source in the Yemeni Air Force told the Yemeni al-Masirah TV that the attacks were carried out after a “careful observation mission” and stated that the UAVs hit their targets “directly and accurately.”

The Qasef-1 is a copy of the Iranian-made “Ababil-2” UAV armed with 30kg warhead, according to a report of the Conflict Armament Research (CAR) group. The UAV can remain airborne and preform reconnaissance mission or it can dive and destroys its target by hitting it directly.

Since the beginning of this month, the Yemeni Air Force has stepped up its operations on the Saudi-led coalition throughout Yemen. This indicates that the Houthis are now producing more UAVs, likely with help from Iran.

    Same story, different day.

    • That’s how victory is reached. One day at a time. These drones sound very effective, just as in WW2 the Kamikaze was the most feared Japanese weapon. More effective now because the number of trained pilots is not bled away. So I think you are whistling past the graveyard, Dear Smaug. The Wahhabi behemoth army is like King Kong beset with buzzing planes. No matter how many he swats they persist in tormenting him, and eventually he come crashing down!

          For a septic, you are very short-sighted and also in self denial, not to recognise that the BIGGEST occupied country is yours……….. the jolly old US of A…………….. but then again if you lay off the pot and the crack, you might be able to see things clearly in the future.

        • Kamikaze was a success in the amount of damage inflicted. Obviously it failed in affecting the war’s outcome. Just as the ISIS suicide attacks are successful at inflicting numerous casualties but will fail in delivering any war outcome other than their extermination. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamikaze#Main_wave_of_attacks
