Houthis Strike Two Airports In Southern Saudi Arabia With Suicide Drones

The Houthis’ Qasef-1 multirole UAV

The southern Saudi airports of Abha and Jizan were targeted by suicide drones in the late hours of June 15 in a coordinated attack by the Houthis.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said that several Qasef-2K suicide unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) struck a drone command and control center in Jizan airport and Abha airport’s main fuel station.

“The operations achieved their goals with high precision, thanks God, rendering both airports out of service,” the al-Masirah TV quoted the Houthis’ spokesman as saying.

The Qasef-2k is a slightly upgraded variant of the Qasef-1 UAV, which is a copy of the Iranian Ababil-2. The new suicide UAV is armed with a heavy high-explosive fragmentation (HE-FRAG) warhead that explodes 20m over the target.

From its side, the Saudi-led coalition said that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RSADF) had intercepted a “ballistic missile” over the Kingdom’s southern region. The coalition didn’t comment on the drone attack, which usually means that it was successful.

AThe bha airport was attacked twice by the Houthis earlier this week. The first attack was carried out with what the Yemeni group described as a “cruise missile”, while five suicide drones were used in the second attack.

The repeated attacks by the Houthis on Saudi Arabia’s airports are a clear example of the Yemeni group’s growing offensive capabilities.

          • LR captain

            honestly there is nothing that only Canadians would know and that non-Canadians would not know.

            Keep in mind that as alternative media become more popular, their attitudes will change.

      • Bob

        The Gestapo were a totalitarian, parallel, police institution in Nazi Germany, from 1933-1945. Clearly, neither history or geography are your strong point.

        Piss of Hasbarat…

    • d’Artagnan

      Shiaism is the most enlightened and moderate form of hybrid Islam. The European colonial powers have always propped by the extremist Wahhabi and Salafist foreign imposed versions as they have have been easy to corrupt. The exploitation of Wahhabi backwardness and ignorance has played into UK and later US hands. The Wahhabi Bedouin were fostered by the British imperialists in the Arabian peninsula to act as proxies against the Ottomans, much like today, they are being used to fan terrorism against the Shia and secular regimes in the Muslim world. Saudi Arabia is the source of Wahhabi terror, dating back to the Afghan war and USSR era.

    • Hasbara Hunter

      Good to see you back in here…How you’re doin’ Bro…:)

      • US-Navy Revert Shia

        Salaam,
        Been around, every thing is good brother.

  • ColinNZ

    If the Resistance wants to push the anglozionists, KSA et al. back then I think it should step up attacks like this and it should have done so a long time ago. The only way the hegemon and it’s vassals will back off is if you hit them in the pocket … they fear a fired up conflict in the region because it will cause them economic armageddon … so why not give it to them.

    • omrizkiblog

      It’s interesting to see such “Economic Armageddon” hit rich gulf countries, ultimately KSA, along with UEA, Bahrain, Qatar, but If it happened then I think Iran would get affected too. Also, we still had no idea how big Houthi forces is in term of armaments, supply systems (weapons & foods!) & money support (are they ready to fight NATO & US at the same time? Knowing well they could simply carpet-bombing them like they did to Yugoslavia). There will be a lot of casualties from both sides.

      So, I honestly don’t think they could go that far for now, but if they don’t march right now, they would probably lose the momentum. Yes, hit where it hurts, the pocket!

      • Selbstdenker

        I was traveling Iran for business several years. Carpet bombing will not be possible if you take their air defense into consideration. They have more AD sites then you may imagine, and an own development program, which produces systems noone outside Iran knows their numbers.

        • omrizkiblog

          Carpet bombing yemen, not Iran.

  • d’Artagnan

    The Saudis and their impulsive usurper MBS started this unnecessary conflict in Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest nation with full backing, support and military assistance from US, UK, France and most of NATO. However, they failed to understand the intricate tribal alliance system of Yemen and its modern demography where the Shia now hold sway. The Saudi aim was neo-colonial, to impose a quisling Wahhabi regime led by an doddering vassal Hadi, the Yemenis who have been fiercely independent since pre-biblical era, dating back to the Queen of Sheba, simply did not cotton to Saudi dictates and resisted. The Saudis like all arrogant cowards, in sheer frustration made the fatal mistake of attacking Yemen’s civilians and infrastructure when their war effort failed. Now the Yemenis have had a chance to organize themselves and hit back. The situation for Saudi Arabia and UAE will get worse if they do not stop this totally wasteful and futile conflict, which borders on wilful genocide. In any asymmetrical war, if the resistance forces can withstand the initial onslaught from superior firepower and survive, they have won. There is a good lesson for US in the Yemen war too, if Bolton’s unlimited insanity leads to a suicidal attack on Iran, the outcome will be far worse. In any case, respect and kudos to the tenacious Ansarallah and their Yemeni military allies for their extraordinary fighting capacity, despite all odds. The Saudis have opened up a Pandora’s technology box in Yemen, where new deadly regional weaponry is coming into play with devastating effects on the Saudi aggressors.

    anything that hurts saudi and the laugh of the month Mohammed bin salman of leonardo da vinci fame (hohohohoho) is good and should be repeated ad infinitum till the day they, the houthis, can knock on the door of the crown prince’s chambers and take him for a ride to have his head lopped off, saudi style,
    . meanwhile enjoy the fact that the retard bought a fake leonardi da vinci and paid 450million $$ for it whereas the actual value tends towards 1.5 million $$. now isn’t that funny.

    • Selbstdenker

      I am pretty sure the piture he baught was a Beltracci. Meanwhile the prices for these forgeries by Beltracci are rising…

      • verner

        close to 450million bucks or thereabouts yet?

  • Icarus Tanović

    Shia/Sunni, there’s no much of the diffference, but don’t confuse wahhabis with sunnis or Islam at all. They are NOT Muslim in any segment.
