Houthis Launch At Least 8 Ballistic Missiles At Saudi Arabia (Video)

A screenshot from the video

UPDATE: Saudi sources claim that four missiles were intercepted.

On April 28, Yemen’s Houthis launched at least 8 Badr-1 ballistic missiles at “economic and vital targets” in the southwestern Saudi province of Jizan, according to the pro-Houthis al-Masirah television network.

Al-Masirah added that all the missiles had hit their targets. However, no details were provided on on the exact locations of the targets and the possible casualties and the extent of damage caused.

The Houthis has recently vowed to avenge the killing of one of their top leaders, Saleh al-Samad, in a Saudi airstrike last week. The April 28 missile strike may be considered as one of the actions carried out in response to the death of Saleh al-Samad.

On April 23, the Houthis launched two Badr 1-type ballistic missiles at oil facilities belong to Saudi Arabia’s energy giant Aramco in Jizan. The missile strike followed Saudi-led coalition strikes on a wedding ceremony in Yemen’s Hajjah on April 22. These strikes killed about 30-40 civilians, including women and children.

    Hitting the Saudi oil terminals would be good:)

      more than good

      Ballistic Missiles” ? ..
      C’mon they are the old Soviet long-range SAMs called SAM-2 from the ’60s. ( The kind that took down one U-2 espionage-plane over USSR and one over Cuba as that Crisis was ignited),

      Only that they are a little modified.
      SADDAM HAD THE OLD SCUD. That were missiles for such a job, like hitting the Saudi OIL-facilities

      • Toni Liu

        They had a SCUD one like the one they launch to riyadh last month, but its longe range make it special compare that sam 2 upgrade, but this sam 2 upgrade more cheaper and still had range to jizan aramco oil facilities so why they dont use that, if they got Soviet SS 23 tochka or SS 21 thats more better choice cause it can penetrate patriot more better that all this upgrade they had

      • Barba_Papa

        Saddam’s Scuds were utter shite though. As terrible at hitting their targets as the defending Patriots were at bringing them down. They only served a political purpose for Saddam to hit Israel with to bring them into the war in the hope that it would make the US/Arab coalition fall apart. I doubt that the Houthis have made them that much more efficient at actually hitting a target. It’s just about the symbolic act of hitting anything inside Saudi Arabia.

      The right resolution Article 51 of the UN charter resolution – 3324 from 29th November 1978 and the General Assembly resolution 3246 from 29th November 1974 reaffirm the legitimacy of the people struggle for the liberation from colonial and foreign domination and alien subjugation by all available means including arm struggle. So UN allows Syrian, Palestinians and Yemenis to obtain all effective weapons and support from Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan etc and free themselves from US, UK, France, Israel, Saudis Wahabis and from their proxies. A 1% mindful person will never tolerate brutality on small kids and womens that now living in graveyards homeless.

    • Merijn

      Give the Houthis all the Missiles they need….and some birdhunting equipment would be nice too…

      • Icarus Tanović

        Hahahahaha! You nailed it!

    • Nigel Maund

      Agreed! The aim would be to smash up the oil terminal delivery systems to the port city of Dammam and the oil pipelines between the major oil fields, refineries and port.

    • Tom Tom

      Ok, now that’s a good one.

  • The Latin Mass

    Anywhere there are civilians, Saudis will bomb: markets, weddings, homes, towns, villages and cities.

    • Siegfried

      They Saudi camel-dvngs do it anyway, don’t you see?

      Some SCUD-missiles would be good to kick into the Kings palace.
      Maybe they could get the pYg on the toilet, so that we can say “What a mess! ” ;)

      • You can call me Al

        Does v = u which makes it “dungs” & Y=I, which makes it “pig”….if so, why don’t you just say so ?

            Cheers, as I should have known that, as I have also been censored by them all.

      • Icarus Tanović

        SCUDS are on their way, believe it or not to Yemeni forces.
        Those are gonna inject a bit mindfulness into Wahhabie head chopping, liver eating, human baking minds.

      The American Way…it’s just Collateral Damage

  • Jozsef Osztronkovics

    We wish that Russia and Iran would be involved I Yemen ///the peace would be sooner a reality

    • Siegfried

      The Russians would be TOO stretched… and I suppose that THIS IS also a wish of the Americans, to make the Russians lose time, money and Military in Yemen and to have difficulties with the LOGISTIC thru Suez and Persian GULF, “dribbling” the US-Navy..
      THE CHINESE COULD DO IT EASIER and besides the Chinese are ALREADY THERE somewhere, 200 Chinese soldiers landed and evacuated on CHINESE SHIPS their men, the Russians and the Western Embassies in Yemen, as the Civil-War started in the Capital

      • wrong , it is the US military thats been overstretched for decades , they are embroiled in conflicts all over the world , so much so that their weapons procurement is a mess focused on low intensity conflict that useless in real war.. the demise of US smart weapons during their assault in syria was a ominous sign that US been neglecting their weapon system upgrades to counter excellent russian A2/AD and EW

        the gigantic US military budget are spent on propping foreign bases (cover and overt) and listening posts and to play soldiers in countless brushfire wars with their specops troops kicking in doors..

        then again , we all saw how useless these go-fast specops troops when they are left with no firesupport .. witness the superbly equipped specops unit got slaughtered in Niger Ambush by mere sandal wearing insurgets with rifles and RPG..

        • as

          Lack of sophistication is the words. All of their recent invention geared towards anti insurgency and power projection.
          Fighting peers adversary using such mindset just wouldn’t work.

      • Why would the Russians have trouble at Suez? Suez is Egyptian, not NATO or Israeli.

      • Bob

        Do you have a form of Caps Lock epilepsy?

    • Rob

      Russia can use the CPEC road and rail in Pakistan to reach to Yemen. The protection of Yemen small kids and women is the responsibility of every human…..

      • wrong , CPEC connected to china not russia , and if russ want to get involved in yemen they can use iranian ports / airfield as jumping off point

        • Rob

          Pakistani government have already welcomed Russian brothers that you can use CPEC roads and rail to reach to Middle East.

          • wrong again, CPEC connect china to pakistani sea ports , not conneti9n to middle east by rail

          • Rob

            Russia through Kazekhestan and CPEC can access to Gwadar sea port and then from Gwadar port to Yemen ports.

          • russia can get to middle east faster from it’s own ports than going via CPEC

      • Icarus Tanović

        Well said brother, well said.

    • Merijn

      Mo’ Missiles…Tor-M2 surface-to-air-systems are very nice too…to keep Wahhabi-Choppers away…

      • You can call me Al

        If the Wahhabi-“head Choppers” actually knew which button to press, to switch on their Yank built shite on, they would be safe of these 30 year old missile designs.

        Maybe instead of acting like total dumb, inbred, bullying, rag heads – they should have gone to school.. (https://photius.com/rankings/national_iq_scores_country_ranks.html)

        Anyway, I don’t care who will support the Houthis, I will support any supporter and in the future, I want them attacking military bases, cities, ports, oil facilities and….

        PS Sorry I will stop now.

        • Icarus Tanović

          … And Riyadh. Can I continue?

          • You can call me Al

            Please feel free…..it is good when you let it all out.

    • Nigel Maund

      Russia is unfortunately too involved with Syria and Armenia in preventing colour revolutions funded by the CIA and Soros. If I were Russia I’d take Soros out

  • Rob

    The estate agent Trump creates lots of problems in the world. Total chaos in the whole world. Trump is absolutely evil. The Anglo Zionists of US, UK and France have injected Israeli migrants and ISIS in the Middle East and have hired AQ. Now all Muslim nations should prepare themselves for a final war.

    • You can call me Al

      I know that is the common thought, but believe it or not, the UK really isn’t involved but are bullied into the minimal input…..I know, I know what you are going to say……but.

      • Icarus Tanović

        UK had a choise, because of German blackmail, whether to become a German slave, just like Greece, because UK economy is taking appart on the seems, because they took so much money from the Brisel EU bank, that’s controlled by Germany… OR to obey barbarians from USA, and to do what America wants them to do.
        UK would like to impose its own will and business (just like when Germans wanted that island to buy from Greece), but all we know that UK, especially England utterly hates Germany.
        But, Germany have time to wait, and UK is not in position to impose its will to anyone.
        Maybe to Belize and to Virgin Islands. And maybe Maldivi too.

        • You can call me Al

          Sorry, I was meaning the bullying by the US.

    • Steve Bell

      Trump probably has no choice, given that the FBI raid on his lawyer occurred just after he said the U.S. military would leave Syria… lest he ends up as another Kennedy.

    • klove and light

      love that one ..moslem nations..lol like egypt..fuck uped society(practically in civil war since the 1950´s)…saudi arabia (british birth, british controlled) Bahrain,Kuwait,Qatar,United arab emirates….countries?nations?yeah belive maybe on lsd crack and heroin…otherwise youéd know these are british protectorates.Algeria.haha civil war since beforeeeeee its independace, if u wanna call it that….marocco???great country..all high on drugs..n1. country of the world in cannabis(hash there) drug production..its a paradise for criminals right now….Indonesia..civil war+genocide since 1960´s..a crime rate thats mind boggeling..south thailand..civil war…southern philippines…civil war…myanmar..civil war+genocide

      Forget the so called moselm countries..they have been hyjacked if u will.each and every leader of those countries (exept for duterte..im not a friend of him, but to hes defence..he is not part of the so called program) is a stooge for the anglo-zionist agenda.
      All alone now in the wind is Persia with its allies in Syria and lebanon and Jemen.The weakest points are attacked before the main strike on the mother Persia.Jemen and Syria and Lebanon.
      They failed in Lebanon.They are failing in Jemen.They are failing in Syria.
      So a conventional war with Persia is OFF the table already.They cannot win by a long shot.It has to be nuclear.Only 2 problems.
      1.russia..putin quote” anybody who attacks us or our allies(iran) with nuclear weapons will be attacked back by nuclear weapons”
      2.The conventional Backlash of Persia,Hezbollah,SAA on Israel and Nato targets around the middle east..would be davastating..Israel is tiny..the nato bases are tiny(in compared to vast area of IRAN,SYRIA and LEBANON combined)..even if attacked with nukes…they could utterly destroy israels cities ports airports etc…not to mentioned the bases of nato.
      The plan changed slightly now in that the anglo-zionist agenda will use stooges to carry out the nucleat attack on Persia.On the forefront Saudi Arabia.Bin Salman has already said it not on one, but on numerous occasions including live interview on US media.”We will go nuclear if the JCOP nuclear agreement is not working less to say scrapped”.
      It will be Saudi Arabia attacking Persia with nuclear weapons.Thats the plan for the anglo-zionist agenda., right now after failing to implement their plans for Lebanon,Syria and Jemen.

  • Andrei

    Hi there. I am sorry to disturb,may I as

  • Andrei

    Hi there, my I ask why almost everybody here want to attack to fight? PEACE is the most wonderful think EVER.

    • goingbrokes

      Because Saudi alliance (includes US, UK, and Israel too) have been attacking Yemen relentlessly for several years.

    • Rob

      There is just one group of criminals, thugs called US, UK, France, they have injected Israel and ISIS in Middle East and attack Muslim states. They are big threat to Muslims in Middle East.

  • Andrei

    Military actions are not always good, it doesn’t work always. You have to convince the people of the country that what you want it will have a positive impact in their life and then only then you will have a upper hand.

    Thanks

  • Icarus Tanović

    This is such a beautiful sight! I wish they listen to ‘Rock the Casbah’ song while firing missiles.
    I would likw to see such fire, explosion, combustion and flames from some of their oil fields. Just lime that huge expolsions in Beijing or Mexico.
    Oh, how I, wish to se that. Fire eats its way.

  • Tom Tom

    …all the missiles had hit their targets.”

    See? THIS is how you do it. Fire a lot of missiles in the same area. Not one at at time. Time to launch a couple dozen on Riyadh.

  • northerntruthseeker .

    Bravo to the Houthis!!! But like everyone else, i do wonder why the Houthis are not targeting Saudi Oil installations? Hit them where it really does hurt should be their first priority..

    That may be due to the inaccuracy of these missiles….

  • If the Houthis had plenty of Silkworm missiles they could close the Red Sea to shipping of hostile powers!

    • goingbrokes

      That is precisely what the attack on Yemen is about – partly. Israeli subs from Red Sea have to pass a hostile strait, and they can’t stand it. They want to be able to use a sea launched missile attack against Iran. But the Houthis still control the strait of al Bab enough to cause problems. Unless the Saudis win quickly the future doesn’t look that good either, for the Israelis that is.

      • Until 1967, UK held Perim island in the strait for over 100 years, Like they have done with Gibraltar. In 1973 Yemeni forces with Egyptian aid enforced a blockade on Israeli shipping there. NATO’s control of Djibouti would complicate anti-submarine warfare, but missiles would definitely close the strait to surface traffic.
