On September 2, the Houthis launched a Qaher-M2 ballistic missile on a camp of the Sudanese Army south of al-Mausim area in Jizan province near the Yemeni-Saudi border.

The Both sides didn’t announce any info about causalities caused by the attack.

The Sudanese Army is the third biggest force deployed in Yemen within the Saudi-led coalition (after Saudi Arabia itself and the UAE).

A Qaher-M2 ballistic missile is one of the most advanced missiles in the Houthis’ arsenal. The Houthis claims that Qaher-M2 has a range of 400km with a 350kg warhead. The missile is a modified version of the Soviet-made surface to air missile S-75\V-750.

The Houthis claimed that the missile has a circular error probable (CEP) between 5 and 10 meters. However, it is likely an exaggeration.

Moreover, the Houthis targeted a gathering of the Saudi-bakced pro-Hadi forces north of Midid desert near Jizan with two Zilzal-1 rockets. According to the Yemeni al-Masirah news TV channel, many pro-Hadi fighters were killed or injured in the strikes.

A Zilzal-1 is a locally made improvised rocket-assisted munition (IRAM). The Zilzal-1 range is believed to be no more than few kilometers, up to 10km tops. However, the Zilzal-1 has a heavy warhead of over 100kg at least.

In the last two years, the Houthis has developed a very successful missile program based on technology and experience mainly acquired from Iran.

    Hitting the Saudi oil export terminals would cause a wee bit of upset :)

      I don’t know the range of the nearest terminals / refineries but if they get desperate enough and they are in range that is a definite possibility.

        These Mercenaries they have are incapable of fighting guerilla and light tactical warfare, not many countries in Africa and among the GCC are not able to combat it anyways.

    They actually have of lot of homegrown developers working on Missiles for the government and working on homegrown weapons also. Finding it not difficult to believe they are incapable of reaching ranges beyond 40-250 km with local missiles.
