Houthis Launch “Ballistic Missile” At Industrial City In Southern Saudi Arabia

On June 10, the Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had launched a Badir-1 “ballistic missile” at the industrial city in the southern Saudi province of Jizan. The same industrial city was targeted by the Yemeni Missiles Force with rockets on April 11 and 12.

The Badir-1, which was first revealed on March 22, is in fact a locally-made copy of the Iranian-made solid fuel artillery rocket, Fajir-3. The rocket has a high accuracy and a speed over 4,5 Mach, according to the Yemeni Missiles Force.

Minutes after the Yemeni Missiles Force announcement, a spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition, Colonel Turki Al-Malaki, said that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RSAD) tracked and intercepted a “ballistic missile” of the Houthis over Jizan. Col. al-Malaki revealed that the missile was launched from the northern Yemeni province of Saada.

“This hostile act by the Iran-backed Houthi militias proves the continuing involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi militias equipped with qualitative capabilities in a flagrant and explicit violation of the two UN resolutions No. 2216 and 2231 aiming to threaten the security of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Col. al-Malaki said commenting on the missile strike, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

This is the second missile strike of the Houthis this week. On June 8, the Yemeni Missiles Force [launched a salvo of “ballistic missiles” at several bases of the Saudi military in the southern Saudi provinces of Najran and Asir.

The Saudi-led coalition will likely intensify its aerial operations against the Houthis in Saada as a response to these strikes as it has  done many times before.

    …… And the Houthi’s chant :

    Death to America !
    Death to Israel !
    Curse on the Jews !
    Victory to Islam !

    They do this every time they make an action, of any kind. Its rather funny, and poetic justice indeed.

    A threadbare force, wearing beach sandals and bedsheets, armed with AK-47’s and a few ATGM , a few missiles made in-house, have literally stumped the Saudi , U.A.E, and Pentagon. Its just too good to be true, but its really happening. They remind me of the equally threadbare Taliban, whom after 17 years, are still putting up a ferocious, vicious fight.

    Somebody please remind this illiterate colonel that UNSC resolution 2231 is related to Iran’s nuclear program vs. economic sanctions and will not be breached if Houthis hit you in the head with missiles for a thousand years.
    And UNSCR 2216 targets Houthis, not Yemen Army, though they’re brilliant enough to produce what they need locally and under all kinds of embargo and aerial threat.

    We entered the age of post-Skripal, where anybody can say anything and not care one bit about consequences, responsibility or evidence, as long as being a member in the Empire of Evil.

    Hopefully (just as the houthis mentioned last week) they will attack Dubai with ballistic missiles.That would send a major message to those universally recognized assholes.

      Columbia gets rewarded with a possible membership into NATO…just in time for an attack on Columbia by Venezuela. The US will have to annihilate Venezuela.

  • zman

    ‘a flagrant and explicit violation of the two UN resolutions’…That’s almost as funny as the Sauds being on the HRC in the UN.
