Houthis Hit Saudi-led Coalition Troops With Badir-1P Rocket And Target Saudi Airbase With Qasef-1 UAV (Video)

Donate

On November 3, the Yemeni Missiles Forces, which is an ally of the Houthis, announced that it had launched a Badir-1P guided artillery rocket at a gathering of Saudi-led coalition troops on the western coast of Yemen.

“The rocket, which has an accuracy of 3meters and uses smart technology, hit its target accurately injuring and killing many [Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters],” the Yemeni al-Masirah TV quoted a source in the Yemeni Missiles Forces as saying.

The media wing of the Houthis released a video, taken by a mini drone. The video shows how the rocket hit a convoy of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies with high accuracy. Experts believe that the Badir-1P is a locally-made copy of the Iranian Fajir-5C guided artillery rocket.

Hours after the rocket attack, a Qasef-1 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of the Yemeni Air Force, which is also an ally of the Houthis, carried out a series of airstrikes on the King Khalid Air Base in the southwestern Saudi province of Asir.

“The aerial attack resulted in accurate hits in the Saudi air base, which hosts warplanes of the enemy,” a source in the Yemeni Air Force told al-Masirah.

The Qasef-1 is a copy of the Iranian-made “Ababil-2”, according to a report of the Conflict Armament Research (CAR) group. The Houthis used Qasef-1 as a suicide UAV when it was first introduced in 2017. However, the UAV was modified later to carry and drop small-diameter projectiles.

The Houthis didn’t release a video of the UAV attack. However, Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the Yemeni Air Force claims so far, which indicates that the attack was likely successful.

These new attacks were a clear response by the Houthis to the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on the al-Daylami airbase near the Yemeni capital of Sanaa two days ago. Back then, the coalition falsely claimed that the airstrikes destroyed most of the UAV and missile capabilities of the Houthis.

    Looks like a large number of vehicles were disabled.

      70% of Saudi armor and transport has been chewed up in Yemen and that is why they have signed over $30 billion replacement contracts with US, Canada, Germany and France masters.

      • Hisham Saber

        Not really. Most of Saudi Arabia’s armor and best units are strategically placed around the capital and other main cities.

        Just in case of a coup or popular uprising in the Kingdom.

        Its more like the Saudi’s are using 25% of their ground forces, a sizable number of mercs, from Sudan and Columbia, among other places, and they are using about all their experienced air force pilots and planes. Simply put, the terrain between Yemen and Saudi is unforgiving.

        The Saudi’s are getting lots of help from the U.S., Britain and France for fighting the Houthi’s, including satellite imagery and other help.

    In Holland Edward Lemon is more or less trying to blame Russia for ISIS in Tajikistan…

      fortiter in re, suaviter in modo

  • World_Eye

    Well they missed the convoy by a lot maybe by 20-30m+. If that rocket hit those cars directly that was going to be very high impact though. This was pieces and shrapnels from the rocket itself probably did the damage.

    • PZIVJ

      Not a big bang, but for sure some shrapnel damage. Live fire testing. LOL
      And the Houthi’s have a nice video of it.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The 10,000 Saudi mercenaries around Hudayah are mostly Sudanese and they are suffering horrendous casualties. The puppet corrupt Sudanese government has imposed a ban on reporting casualties but reports do trickle in and now the Saudis are paying the dead mercenaries families $500 to remain quiet and accept the fact that their relatives bodies have been left to rot in Yemen. There are also reports that the Saudis have shot wounded mercenaries as medical care is unavailable and expensive. Over 3,000 Sudanese have been killed, wounded, captured or maimed in Yemen.

      • Sinbad2

        The destruction and partition of Sudan was another American operation.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Very astute observation. South Sudan has OIL and most western companies have taken over. The idiot Bashir in Khartoum is a CIA puppet.

    • Icarus Tanović

      In military this is considered as a direct hit.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The accuracy of Ansarollah missiles is getting better and even Sudanese controlled media is reporting extreme demoralization in the mercenaries as the casualties are very high. Every time the moronic Saudi scum gather their pathetic mercenaries for an attack on al-Hudayah port the get hit and that is the reason that for 4 months the Saudi “offensive” has stalled.The Ansarollah have reinforced and dug in the urban environment of Hudayah and saturated it with Hezbollah style light ATGM hunter killer teams that will chew up the Saudi mercenaries as airpower on urban rubble does not work.

    • Hisham Saber

      Yes, Hezbollah and the IRGC have long since dispatched military advisors to help the AnsurAllah and Houthi’s out. Hudayah will hold. The defenders always have the advantage in this type of warfare.

      Btw, the UAE is also losing lots of money, equipment, prestige and even their main airport in Dubai is coming under missile bombardment.

  • Sinbad2

    On to Riyadh, put Salman’s head in a box and post it to Trump.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      There is internal al-Saud mafia family problems happening in Riyadh as the senile king’s brother has returned from Spain and the Sudeiri clan is pushing for him as replacement for the headchopper MBS, the CIA is propping up their man though. This is the first time the al-Saud headchoppers are in internal conflict.

  • Icarus Tanović

    Wow! In military doctrine this is considered as a direct hit! Bravo! This freeze their blood.

  • Joaquin

    Keep going Houthis !!

  • Ivan Freely

    Nice. I wish it was a direct hit on the convoy. Hopefully shrapnel took out the majority of them.

  • hvaiallverden

    Good one, and not bad at all, what, 30m maybe, but never the less an good hit.

    You see, that, they never learn do they, create wars, to feed their own corpoRats with ever more resources, and this war is as meaningless and the others apart from, the ugly truth.
    Yeah, when robbing Peter, and lets this benefit, Paul, you can always be certain of the suport of Paul.

    Yeah, the shameless Brits whines about Russia, drools something about disrespect of humanism etc, but then comes the Yemen was and the Birts droool something about cant stop that, because we make an ton of moooney of it, yeah, we are the victims arent we, Brits, and sends AID, witch is then burned, nor bombed by the same sorce, an cash founded perpetum mobile, nice one, right Trump.

    But the worst thing is the MSM, the same scums that our stupid politicians feeds their ignorance from the very same MSM that lies about everything, all the time, like Libya, etc and now Yemen and Syria.
    The western MSM is the enemy of man, and in the banana republic, CNN even advocated genoicde on white males, and thats not even hate speache.
    Nice, isnt it.
    What could possibly go wrong.

    peace

    Interesting that Houthi/Yemeni Republican Guard are still quite capable of launching intermediate rocket artillery and missiles at Saudi’s and their proxies – because even the US mainstream and specialist military media are now reporting that US Green Berets have been secretly operating in Yemen for some time, specifically tasked to with attempting to locate and destroy the launchers and storage sites.
