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.
