Houthis Rain Hell On Military Helicopter Base In Southern Saudi Arabia

Illustrative image, source: the Houthis media wing

On November 28, the Yemeni Missile Force [loyal to the Houthis] launched a “salvo” of Badir-1 artillery rockets on a helicopter base of the Saudi military in the Kingdom’s southern province of Nijan.

This was the first missile attack since the Houthis halted their missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia and UAE territories earlier this month.

The Yemeni Missiles Force said that several Apache attack helicopters of the Saudi military were destroyed in the rocket strike along with an ammo depot. Furthermore, some Saudi pilots were reportedly killed.

According to experts, the Badir-1, which was first revealed on March 22, is copy of the Iranian-made solid fuel artillery rocket, Fajir-5. An INS\GPS guided copy of the rocket, named “Badir-1P,” was presented last month.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the Yemeni Missile Force’s claims so far, which confirms that the rockets hit their targets successfully.

The Houthis decision to resume their attacks on Saudi territory was likely provoked by the recent attacks of the Saudi-led coalition in the Yemeni provinces of Sadaa, Sanaa and Ma’rib.

      Houthis have the strength of the Yemeni people, the strength, hope and prayers of the majority of the people of the World and all greater beings.

      If they can contain this strength (both physically and mentally); what we are seeing could be a World changer ……. some outside help would be nice though.

          That is true, the Shia kids in sandals and chewing Khat are really fearless. They simply walk up in front of Saudi tank and blow it to pieces and then burn the land cruisers by pouring gasoline. It is so funny watching the Saudi and Emirati scum and their mercenaries running off dropping their weapons. The Saudi idiots picked the wrong people to fcuk with.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Actually the Yemenis are pretty smart hard working people. They built Saudi Arabian shithole by their hands. The Yemeni military historically has been dominated by the mountain region Zaidi Shia who have always resented Saudi interference. Ali Abdullah Saleh and his son switched sides back to the Ansarollah even after Saudi bribes. The Yemeni special forces are as good as the SAA and perhaps tougher as Yemen is much poorer country so they have had to improvise with many of the Soviet era weaponry. They have also captured a lot of weapons from the Saudis and Emiratis who are really stuck in a quagmire now as Americunts are not providing unlimited aerial refueling now and Senate has passed a resolution to cut off all military support for Yemen war. There has hardly been any Saudi air activity this week. The Zaidi intelligence is now far better too as the early morning missile attack on a major helo base shows. The Saudi idiots had the Apaches and a few Kiowa’s lined up for refueling and as the video shows the missile set off a major fire.

          The US are playing a dangerous game I think; they want MBS removed so dumping them in the mire – in my view this could backfire badly on the US; oh well, shit happens hey !!.

      FUKUS/UN, not Saudi Arabia, initially called for an immediate ceasefire and ‘someday’ peace talks. That happened just as the Coalition of Saudi-Wahhabi Evil’s latest west coast campaign to take Hodeidah and Saleef was kicking off. The ground part was just UAE-backed ex-al Qaeda mercenary armies from the south. They, of course, made little gain in Hodeidah after a couple of weeks and their supply lines/escape routes were cut once again further south.

      The particularly bizarre condition suggested by FUKUS/UN was that the Saudis would stop aerial bombardment of Yemen if the Yemen stopped drone and rocket attacks on the CoE (= Saudi and Emerati military targets inside those countries). The two operations are not even close in terms of destructive capacity and civilian casualties. Seems like just another worthless US stick and carrot to convince the Saudis to stop their disastrous, ineffective air campaign. Something they can’t say outright because MbS will get upset.

      The only carrot the U.S. could think of was “We’ll get the Houthis to agree to stop firing off missiles and using drones at the Riyadh and Jizan Air Bases”. MbS didn’t even like that insulting suggestion – he want’s the Houthis genocided. And at the very least, any kind of peace – as far as the Saudis are concerned – has already been put forward at the UN and approved (2015): The Houthis are to stop fighting, turn in all their weapons to the Saudi-backed Hadi Mafia government and go home (= leave Sana’a). Basically, give up and trust the crooked, Hadi-led Saudi-puppett government they were trying to overthrow for the last three years. MbS seems confused about the Houthis. It’s like he expects them to have the same fawning, servile, butt-kissing behavior of U.S. politicians.

      Houthi missile/drone attacks are few in number and days apart. It wouldn’t have been a big deal for them to agree to halt them to see what happens, especially if it would stop the Saudi air attacks. Turns out the Saudis were only talking about Hodeidah but were still attacking all their other U.S.-provided targets in Yemen. The Houthis didn’t offer peace (nor did the Saudis). The Houthis just agreed to stop their drone/missile attacks without much conviction that the Saudis would reciprocate, but what the hell.. As expected, the Saudis lied and broke the agreement anyway.

      The separate, mutually-agreed to Hodeidah ground ceasefire didn’t last a day. The intensity of the fighting during the fighting fell off as the UAE merc army hit the Houthi wall of resistance. Pitched battles continue with little enthusiasm or change on either side.

      In yet another previous one-sided deal, the UN wants to run the port to ensure humanitarian aid gets in and distributed. The Houthis are fine with that, but not with the additional condition that they must leave the port and city. Doing so would almost guarantee the UAE orcs would move in at the first opportunity to occupy, and eventually control it. That would be for their Dubai World (manages ports worldwide) masters. The orcs would also laugh off any attempts by the UN or WFP to feed Houthis, Ansarallah or any other northern rebels resisting Saudi/UAE occupation.

        SANAA, Yemen — Yemeni Shia militias say they have
        fired ballistic missiles over the border into Saudi Arabia and hit a major
        air base.

        The Shia forces under the umbrella of Ansarollah ( Partisans of God) said early on Thursday thatthey fired the Badr-1 missiles into the southern Saudi border region of
        Najran. On the previous day, they posted video of a destroyed Apache attack
        helicopters and killed two pilots from the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Ansarollah in Yemeni.

        Saudi authorities were not immediately available for comment as usual as they refuse to acknowledge their losses..

        Yemenis should never promise to leave Hodeidah and trust Un policing it. Same trick was planned for Nicosia Airport in1974. The spanner in the works was that the Greek Commandos could see the Canadian/Swedish Blue Helmet treachery a mile away and refused to leave the airport.That is how Fellow Nato member Turkey did not get their dirty little hands on it.

        • Pave Way IV

          The Houthis were worried about the looming humanitarian disaster, and actually DID agree to let the UN take over the port, itself. That was back in June-July during THAT failed UAE Wahhabi attack. The ‘Saudi Coalition’ insisted that the Houthi had to leave the city as well as the Port of Saleef and Mocha, and then the entire Governorate of Hodeida.

          Of course, that never happened. So the UAE (with the CIA’s blessing) went nuts and recruited even more hard-core al Qaeda fighters (AQAP) from the southern coast tribal areas, including entire units a lot of their commanders. That’s how Aidaroos al-Zubaidi ‘expanded’ the al Amaliqa Giants Brigades to 20,000 before this push. I think the US MSM calls them ‘former or potential future jihadists but now the good guys on our side’.

          The Houthis were always on to their lame-assed scheme, so they have even less intention of walking away from Hodeida in any UN deal -or- trusting their fate to useless UN peacekeepers (bought and paid for by FUKUS/Coaltion of Evil). Too bad the Greek Commandos couldn’t stop by to help kill the Wahhabi invaders.

    A salvo is much better than the normal single rocket.
    Perhaps the Houthis gathered some together during the pause. :)

    • Zionism = EVIL

      As the Syrian terror war winds down, there is a lot of expertise from the Axis of Resistance fighters going to their Ansarollah brothers. Sayyed Nasrollah’s speech last week was very interesting to read about how the regional future will shape up.

    This must be part of the reason the Saudis have requested that UK and Israeli pilots assist with ground attack operations, whoops!, I mean ‘joint training exercises’.

    The UK have sent an extra 200 airmen and an extra x8 Typhoons (good planes by the way). Dont know what Israel are sending, but likely they will just concentrate on the Iranian ‘advisors’ assisting the Houthis and generally do what ever they want, regardless of what the Saudis request:

    Hah! Good job, Houthis!

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Al-Masirah TV wihch is pain for the the Jew Sisi, Saudis, Emirati and Zionist scum has just posted a video showing at least a dozen burning helicopters, hangers and buildings at the base exploding. A lot of dead Saudi scum and perhaps US and Brit support advisors too. The main fuel tank seems to have suffered a direct hit. Well done Ansarollah. It was Badr 1 missile with an HE warhead.

  • v76

    Excellent, this is very good news….. eat a big fcuking dick you saudi scum.

      LMAOROFL (or whatever it is). Very mature and subtle – exactly how I like it; straight to the point.

  • Tommy Jensen

    UNSC should meet and arrange for weapon controle in Yemen in order to provide peace. We cannot go on with these uncontrolled armed attacks on innocent Saudi and UAE officials.

    When all Houthis have laid down their weapons and missiles, Washington and London from the civilised free world will provide guarantees for peace in Yemen………………………………..LOL.

    • Brother Ma

      Yes. Of course just like the UN promised a ceasefire and peace and then Turkey cheated and overan and took over in days what it could not do in over one month. Never trust UN/Nato lies. They are Yanqui -enablers through and through.
