The Houthis launched early on August 25 a new “ballistic missile,” dubbed Nakal, at a gathering of the Saudi military in the Kingdom’s southern province of Najran.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said that the new missile stuck its target, killing and injuring “dozens” of personnel of the Saudi-led coalition.

“A number of ambulances were seen rushing to the scene to transport the dead and wounded,” the spokesman said.

Nakal was first used on August 19 in an attack on a gathering of Saudi-backed forces in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib. The Houthis have not released any information on the new missile, so far.

The missile attack on Najran came a few hours after an aerial strike on the King Khalid Air Base and Abha International Airport in the southern Saudi province of ‘Asir. The Houthis said that the strike was carried out with Qasef-2K suicide unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

These repeated attacks on sensitive Saudi positions are an example of the high coordination between the Houthis’ air force and missile force.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The AnsarAllah and Yemenis are in a class of their own, and let’s hope one day the Iranians and Hezbollah retaliate against the Zionist murderous monkeys who have been killing them with impunity for years.

    • FlorianGeyer

      It will be a day of great rejoicing when the Zionist monkeys are rounded up and given the same treatment as they have done to so many across the globe.

      There is an advantage of being part of a ruthless cult when the cult has a dominant position.

      However history shows us that when a weakened cult is exposed as an amoral collection of charlatans and thieves, such a cult is hunted down and eradicated.

        You put this very well. This stands 100% for Wahhabis and theirs satanistic-spiritualistic cult.

          You are correct and that day is not too far away I suspect.
          In one part of Africa today, Boko Haram are now being hunted and killed by the local population.

          • Icarus Tanović

            I think that Boko is also American creation. They are already hunted down in Somalia, that’s why they have American bases all around just to protect them from Muslims, Somalis.

    The only ‘sensitive Saudi position’ is its finances – and oil feeds that beast. The Houthis are not going to make the Saudis back down by eternally grinding away at it’s military. The Houthis are amazingly good at it, but it does little in the long run for Yemen. Want to kick the financially-strapped Saudi bullies in the nuts? How about making investors think twice about the ARAMCO IPO – that’s worth about $100 billion to the Saudis.

    If Houthis really want to ground Saudi jets, then they should stop wasting missiles on King Khalid Air Base (which seem to have little effect, anyway). Put a missile in the middle of ARAMCO’s $9 billion Jizan refinery or the oil terminal and port. Maybe target the Jizan gasification JV: $8 billion. Putting that one small drone into the Shaybah NGL plant riled up the Saudis and ARAMCO far more than the 100’s of ‘yet another Houthi victory’ in southwest Saudi Arabia or the drone/missile attacks on Saudi military. Saudis bombed plenty of Yemeni ports, water wells and sewage treatment plants to punish Yemenis – I think their oil infrastructure is fair game in return. The Saudis couldn’t cover up a successful attack on Ras Tanura if was in flames for a few days. The Saudis wouldn’t want to pay that kind of price just to re-install Hadi. Same with the almost-broke UAE.

    • Joaquin

      I think the Houthis strategy is to soften up their capabilities to bomb Yemen, while keep getting knowledge and improving capabilities to make coordinated attacks so when the time arrives they can send a devastating blowto this infraestructure at once

    • Joaquin

      Remember that Houthis keep saying that new surprises are coming

    • Boycott-Israel!

      I guess, if there’s ultimate attack to put Saudi’s oil production close to zero, will almost certainly collapse the entire world, i think that number close to 50%. A lot of things going on and we do not know which one that’s going to set the world on the fast lane to the end.

    • Icarus Tanović

      They already started with oil refinery attacking program. In case you missed, one just happen few days ago.
      Also, they should cruise missiled that whateva Al Burj building in Emirates in the middle of the sea, that famous drug dealing hotel.

  • Boycott-Israel!

    This war has been a long battle for Yemen. Humanitarian criris has just become worst and worst, which endanger future generation. Unless the food & water shortage can be overcome, in essence, they yemeni are finally able to produce sufficient food for themselves, then we can assume Yemeni fighter (Houthi) will be here for at least the next 5 years, not just wander around and scratch Saudi’s face but really hit them hard where it hurts. And finally, put an end to this battle.

    • Icarus Tanović

      Believe it or not, this in longer run can ment end of Saudi kingdom.

  • zman

    I just imagine there are a whole lot of soft safe at home Emirs that are taking notice of these events, muttering to themselves; ‘but they had Patriots”. Imagine the look on their face if they get notified their palace made the list. UAE may be getting the message already.
