On September 6, the Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had launched two Badir-1 “ballistic missiles” at the international airport in the southwestern Saudi province of Jizan.
“The two missiles hit their target accurately … air traffic was halted at Jizan airport after being targeted,” a source of the Yemeni Missiles Force told the al-Masirah TV.
From its side, the Saudi-led coalition announced that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RSAD) tracked and intercepted a “ballistic missile” of the Houthis, which was heading towards Jizan. This means that the second Badir-1 “missile” had reached its target.
This was the second “missile” strike of the Houthis on Jizan within the last 48 hours. A day earlier, the Yemeni Missiles Force launched four Badir-1 “ballistic missiles” at a refinery of the Saudi Aramco oil company and several petrochemical factories in the southwestern province.
This increase in the Yemeni Missile Forces attacks indicates that the Houthis are now producing more missiles and rockets, such as the Badir-1, which is a copy of the Iranian-made solid fuel artillery rocket, Fajir-3, according to experts.
