Houthis Strike Saudi Airport, Airbase With Artillery Rockets & Suicide Drones

The Houthis struck on September 5 an airport and a key airbase in Saudi Arabia’s southern region with artillery rockets and suicide drones.

A spokesman for the Yemeni group, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, said that several Badir-1 artillery rockets were fired at Najran Regional Airport. The spokesman claimed that the rockets targeted many military installations in the airport, including warplanes’ shelters.

“The missiles’ strikes, thanks to God, were precise and placed the airport out of service,” Brig. Gen. Sari said.

The second attack, that was carried out with several Qasef-2K suicide unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), targeted King Khalid Air Base. Brig. Gen. Sari claimed that the attack was successful, without providing any additional information.

There was no immediate comment from the Saudi-led coalition on the Houthis’ claims. Usually, the coalition doesn’t comment on successful attacks.

These rockets and drones strikes on Najran Regional Airport and King Khalid Air Base demonstrate the Houthis’ ability to carry out coordinated attacks on sensitive targets deep inside Saudi Arabia.

    While this is very nice wouldn’t it make more sense to kick the Saudi troops out of Yemen first?

      This is underway as the STC, having taken control of Aden, are kicking out Saudi backed Hadi supporters and so successfully,Saudi Arabia is requesting negotiations as per this SF article
      https://southfront.org/military-situation-in-yemen-on-september-5-2019-map-update/

      I wrote a parody on my take of the SF article update on Yemen:

      “Aidarus al-Zoubaidi, the STC’s leader, invited by Saudi Kingdom to hold negotiations with the Mansour Hadi government” – quote from article https://southfront.org/military-situation-in-yemen-on-september-5-2019-map-update/

      Location: Saudi Consulate, Istanbul

      Saudi delegation: 15 representatives headed by Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb

      STC delegation invited: Aidarus al-Zoubaidi. If fiance comes she will have to wait outside.

      Hadi delegation: Anyone for appearances, although experience with dismemberment is an asset.

      Aidarus al-Zoubaidi is given a personal guarantee for his safety by MbS himself (see footnote)

      Footnote. This initiative is without the permission or knowledge of MbS and there will be no phone call to MbS from the consulate once the deed is done, I mean once negotiations have concluded.

      Attacking targets inside of Saudi Arabia itself is also the way to do it!
      Also “kick the Saudi troops out of Yemen first” well that would be the wrong order of doing it. :P What’s the point of attacking Saudis if they aren’t invading Yemen? The whole point of attacking Saudis inside of their country is to punish them for invading Yemen.
