Houthis Launch Another “Missile” At Key Saudi Army Base (VIDEO)

Donate

On April 6, the Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had targeted a strategic base, known as “Quat al-Wajib,” of the Saudi Army in the Saudi southern province of Najran with a Badir-1 “ballistic missile”.

The attack was a response to “the Saudi-led coalition crimes against the civilians,” according to the official statement of the Yemeni Missiles Force.

While the Yemeni Missiles Force claim that Badir-1 is “a ballistic missile,” in reality the projectile is a locally-made copy of the Iranian-made solid fuel artillery rocket, Fajir-3.

Meanwhile, Saudi sources reported that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RSADF) had successfully intercepted the Yemeni rocket with its Patriot surface-to-air missile systems over Najran province. The source also released a video of the successful interception.

The Houthis had conducted five attacks with Badir-1 artillery rockets since it was first revealed on March 22. This indicates that the Houthis are now capable of producing large numbers of these advance rockets inside Yemen. In the near future, the Houthi may even present new versions of the rocket, likely with a higher speed to overcome the Patriot system.

      Each of these rocket attacks is followed by the British RAF (operating from their massive facility in Saudi Arabia) engaging in yet another major bombing campaign of civilian areas in Yemen, murdering hundreds.

      Iran ‘supports’ the Yemen ‘rebels’ for exactly one reason- the belief that while KSA is bogged down in Yemen, it will show zero interest in helping start the Deep State war against Iran.

      Meanwhile, as Southfront NEVER points out, Putin has Russia take every possible action against Yemen ‘rebels’ at the UNSC- while Putin offers Saudi Arabia any Russian weapon systems they care to buy.

      Only an idiot ignores FACTS that makes his/her ‘side’ appear ‘bad’.

      Here’s another very bad fact for all of you. Turkey = NATO. There’s no such thing as a ‘partial’ or ‘reluctant’ member of NATO. And Turkey isn’t even a lesser member of NATO- it is actually a far more important member of NATO than most of the European nations in that organisation.

      NATO used Turkey to funnel most of the major weapon supplies to the West’s wahhabi gangs in Syria.

      Here’s another very bad fact for all of you. The daughter of the ‘poisoned’ spy in the UK was recruited by MI6 years back. While chump Putin acts as if she is going to prove to be a loyal Russian, she is about to confirm the UK government’s (fake) story- a PR disaster for Russia that will ruin the World Cup (half the nations will ban their teams from participating).

      But as the Deep State ensures Russia burns, Southfront will continue to promote pointless distractions about anything that takes your focus from the real issues.

        One fact for You. FSB succesor of KGB, NKVD trained 20. century super spies, we all read about Richard Sorge and Rudolf Ivanovich Abel but less is known about Kuznetsov operating behind enemy lines during WW2 in ocupied Ukraina. He assasined ovet 70 German high ranking officer, he managed to assasin gubernor of Ukraina. Concidering those facts there is no way FSB became so incompetent as as Scripal case attackers were.

        Statement from Yulia Skripal change little to the cases proceeding. They still have to present
        1) the agent samples
        2) how they treated it
        3) evidence linking Russia to both of them.

        Just note that there are no known antidote or ‘miraculous’ treatment’ to victims of most military grade nerve agent because in most cases the poison paralyzing the nerve system far faster than the antidote circulated properly in the system.

    If they could make those rockets carry cluster-type warheads, those could be interesting. When you look at it, all interceptions are within line of sight, few km from target. If those rockets released payload sooner than patriots hit them, as these are somehow short ranged defenses …. remember iraqi ballistic missiles ? They sometimes broke from pressure presenting multiple targets, so even if patriot worked, it cant distinguish between warhead and the rest of the rocket.

    Every time that Saudi clown prince, like a fellow reader here called him, a missile should be launched by the Houthis.

      Me thinks you forgot something:

      “Every time that Saudi clown prince,”……DOES WHAT ?……personally I would go for “breath”.

        :D I forgot to write [say something]. I just felt like smacking his head the day I was writing this, and probably why I didn’t finish or skipped writing [say something].

          With you there mate, with you there.

  • Don’t read butthurt replies

    Why don’t Houthis launch more than one to fool whatever Saudis are using?
