Houthis Launch “Ballistic Missile” At Key Saudi Oil Facility. Patriot Defense Systems Intercept It (Video)

Donate

On March 29, the Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had targeted a key oil facility of the Saudi Aramco oil company in the Saudi southern province of Jizan with a Badir-1 “ballistic missile”. The same facility was targeted with the same weapon on March 22.

While the Yemeni Missile Forces claim that Badir-1 is a “ballistic missile”, experts believe that the projectile is a locally-made copy of the Iranian-made solid fuel artillery rocket, Fajir-3.

Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition announced that one of its MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile systems had successfully intercepted a rocket over Jizan province. Later, Saudi activists published a video, on social networks, that proved the coalition claim.

The Houthis have stepped up their missile and rocket attacks against the Saudi-led coalition since the beginning of 2018. On March 25 alone, the Houthis shelled four airports and several other targets inside Saudi Arabia with seven missiles and rockets.
