Houthis Launch Two Precision-Guided Badir-1P Rockets At Saudi-led Coalition Bases In Jizan

The Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced on March 20 that they had launched two precision-guided Badir-1P rockets at Saudi-led coalition positions in the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan.

According to the al-Masirah TV, the first rocket hit a training camp of Saudi-backed forces near the al-Nar mount, while the second one targeted a base of the coalition’s 5th Division in the area of al- Khubah.

A military source told al-Masirah that both rockets hit their targets with great accuracy. The source went on to claim that more than 70 personnel of the Saudi-led coalition, including high-ranking commanders, were killed and injured in the strike on the 5th Division base.

The Saudi-led coalition didn’t comment on the Yemeni Missiles Force’s claims, which usually means that the attack was successful.

The Badir-1P, which was revealed on October 27, is an INS\GPS guided version of the Badir-1 solid fuel artillery rocket. Experts believe that the Badir-1 family is derived from the Iranian-made Fajir-5 rocket.

Last week, the Houthis announced that they are locally mass-producing high-precision rockets and warned that they could launch attacks on targets within Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Today’s attack is a clear example of what the Yemeni rebel group is capable of.

    bravo houthis keep it up.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    If true, the Ansarollah and Yemeni military should start taking out major Saudi scums infrastructure like oil and water desalination plants and airports. There is no point advertising weapons and not using them or giving away your game plan.

    Good shooting chaps :)

    houthis need to start using tochkas more! They’ve used tochkas very effectively 5 times already since 2015 – eliminating 1500+ saudi soldiers/UAE arab mercenaries. in one strike alone, houthis eliminated 200 saudi troops and flattened a military base in Jizran

      Not sure if Jaob Wohl with large nose would agree, good to see him gone from this site.
      Houthis do not have many of these missiles, wish they had more.

        Just float your cursor over the icon of “Wraith”!

    And Iran brags about its naval capabilities so much. Maybe they should man up, break the siege of Yemen, and face the Royal Saudi Navy like real men :)

      Nose jobs are us :)

        Hahaha, I like that one.

    Holy shit! hahaha
    AWESOME!
    Go Houthi’s!
    hahaha how awesome is it when a poor and distraught nation can fight back and cause havoc upon the richest nation in the middle east! Houthi’s have endured such amazing hardships and devastation but they know that if they disrupt even a tiny amount of Saudi citizens lifestyles, the Saudi people may revolt against its Monarchy! this is what TERRIFIES Saudi Arabia…. the citizens saying “enough is enough”!
    If any Monarchy deserves to be dragged into the streets and beheaded for overspending and squandering its own people’s resources, its the Saudi monarchy! In fact i think this is the true plan of Iran, disrupt Saudi Arabia’s citizenry so much, that the citizens revolt! Every missile attack that hits a very important target is worth 10,000 times more than if Saudi’s hit a Houthi target!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      On the coast of Red Sea, the Saudi scum have quite exposed infrastructure that needs to be taken out. The Zionists are protecting it and perhaps killing some Zionist scum in the process would be a bonus too. The Zionist port city of Eilat should be in missile range in the Occupied Negev where the Jordanian midget pimp Abdullah gave them 22 sq kms of land near Aqaba to build a second airport to escape Hezbollah missiles.

        missiles are the Houthi’s only hope! They cant make an invasion, they have no logistic support! Only sabotage and Guerrilla warfare tactics! Missiles are the key to their success!
        (and attrition)
        This is hurting the Saudi economy badly!
