Houthis Attack Targets In Western Yemen And Southern Saudi Arabia With Armed Drones And Heavy Rocket

On September 15, armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of the Yemeni Air Force [loyal to the Houthis] conducted a series of airstrikes on several positions of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemen proxies along the western coast of Yemen, according to the al-Masirah TV.

“The UAVs attack achieved accurate and direct hits on a headquarters of the occupiers [Saudi-led coalition] on the western coast [of Yemen],” a source in the Yemeni Air Force revealed to al-Masirah.

Experts believe that the attack was carried out by locally-made type of suicide UAVs named “Qasef-1”. 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.

Few hours after the UAV attack, the Yemeni Missile Forces, which is also an ally of the Houthis, launched a Badir-1 artillery rocket at a refinery of the Saudi Aramco oil company in the southern Kingdom’s province of Jizan. A military source told al-Masirah that the rocket hit its target “accurately.”

However, few minutes later Colonel Turki al-Malaki, a spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition, announced that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RSAD) tracked and intercepted a “ballistic missile” of the Houthis, which was heading towards Jizan. According to Col. al-Malaki, the interception didn’t result in any casualties.

These attack are likely an attempt by the Houthis to deter the Saudi-led coalition, which is currently attacking the Yemeni city of al-Hudaydah. The coastal city is considered the last major supply route controlled by the Yemeni group.

If really Saudis have intercepted Houthis missiles in Saudi Arabia then Houthis should not waste their Bader-1 missiles on child butchers in Saudi Arabia. Houthis should use them on aggressors inside Yemen with 100% results. Locate them by UAV Drones and then target their gatherings by Badar-1.

But they make them use those expensive Patriots when aiming at the kingdom. And those Patriot sometimes fail!

Rob

At the moment that is not a priority. It is very crucial to liberate their lost areas. If Yemenis succeeded in this then it will be a great success and a great stroke to child butchers. If Yemenis loose Hudayda then this will be not good for Yemenis.

Do you know why the north won the US civil war?

Because the north was funded by Rothschild, and the north stopped the south exporting.

All wars are about money.

What you say gives direct results and Will lower Saudi troops morale even more, but I think its important to keep hitting them periodically in their own house and destroy the most infraestrutcure they can, eventually this could bring KSA into economic trouble I think. But Houthis need to hold Hodeida, no doubt

Destroy the Saudi ability to sell oil, and you destroy their ability to make war.
Wars are extremely expensive, look at American debt levels, all because they are addicted to war.

But, fucking how???

Sinbad2

More and better missiles.
I would also suggest thermite, phosphorus and napalm armed suicide drones.
Fires and oil terminals are a natural tactic.

I’m surprised the Houthis haven’t tried to sneak themselves into Saudi territory to conduct sabotage missions.

Richard M

They have. SouthFront has had several articles detailing Houthi attacks in KSA. Not on a huge scale though.

Good comment Rob, and makes a great deal of sense to me!

Rob

Thanks.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

Rob

They should do both, if they can.
