Houthis Strike Warship Of Saudi-led Coalition With Two Anti-Ship Missiles

“al-Mandab 1”

On June 13, the Yemeni Navy [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had targeted a warship of the Saudi-led coalition off the coast of the western city of al-Hudaydah with two anti-ship missiles. The Yemeni al-Masirah TV said that the warship was seen burning, and that boats of the coalition are currently rescuing its crew.

According to the Yemeni Navy, the warship was one of the many participating in the attack on al-Hudaydah, which began few hours ago. Reportedly, the warships were approaching the coast of the western city to land troops of the Saudi-led coalition, but backed off following the “missile” strike.

The Yemeni Navy claims that it used anti-ship missiles to target the Saudi-led coalition warship. The Houthis showcased “locally-manufactured” anti-ship missile called “al-Mandab 1” in late 2017. Back then, experts revealed that the missiles is the Chinese-made C-801 subsonic anti-ship missile, which was imported by Yemen in 1995.

However, the Yemeni Navy usually use water-born improvised explosive devices (WBIEDs) to attack Saudi-led coalition warships. The port of al-Hudaydah itself is known to be the key naval facility of the Houthis and the place were such WBIEDs are assembled by Yemeni and Iranian experts.

On March 23, warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition destroyed two WBIEDs in the port of al-Hudaydah, according to the Emirates News Agency (WMA).

Observers believe that the Yemeni Navy will use all of its remaining assets during the battle of al-Hudaydah because of the importance of this port city for the Yemeni forces.

      Yes, good work indeed. I hope the ship sinks :)

      • Drinas

        Even if it doesn’t sink, it will definitely stink with all those Saudis and UAEs..

    Well done them people following the UN Charter and defending themselves against foreign aggression.

    • Feudalism Victory

      Yup. Fighting with honor and zeal.

  • Stephen

    Well done heroes. Eliminate all these global thieves and child butchers of lands and assets.

  • Starlight

    Of course Putin sold the s-400 to Yemen to help them protect themselves against the wahhabi butchers attacking the nation. Oh wait- no actually Putin sells the s-400 to the nations ATTACKING Yemen, and voted at the UNSC to support Saudi Arabia and ban all weapon supplies to the people of Yemen.

    Putin the zionist appeaser is 100% responsible for the holocaust in Yemen. Another Deep State war Putin has backed in every way he could (like Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya- all supported by Russian actions, including Russian pro-war votes at the UNSC).

    • LR captain

      give us links to the proof or shut it

      • potcracker2588

        proof? comon lets not be childish here.
        1.russia voted infavor of the attacking coaltion in the united nations security council, and against the defending houthis.thats a fact.look it up on all media sites,or at the unied nations site.Thats no secret.
        2.russia is selling the invading turkish forces(which by the way have now an official agreement with nato about the n. syria including manjib..all over the news including russian) S-400 long range( 250km).now anybody with a little bit of geography and maths in his brain, will tell you that supplying the S-400 with a range of 250km to turkey, an arch enemy of syria and doorway for the various jihadi groups,will have a devastating strategic effect for the SAA.Thats common sense, no?
        AND in contrast, russia would not even supply the S-300,short range of 92km. to the syrian government.not funny to say the least?

        • viktor ziv

          S-400 is AA system, hence not offensive weapon. Further, SAF is no match comparing to TAF. Also, S-125, 200, Pantsir etc. are enough to foil air assault. After 7 years SAA has enough vets to foil any ground assault. Also, we don’t know if S-300 are in the hands of SAA. You don’t show your cards until really needed.

          • Empire’s Frontiers

            One thing we can see even in google maps are s-300 silo trucks deployed throughout Syria. Assuming they’re not inflatable decoys.

            We might only speculate, but it seems prudent for the Russians to train the Syrians on ‘Russian’ units that are unlikely to be targeted like strictly ‘Syrian’ assets might be.

            ‘Learn on ours’, so to speak.

            BINGO !!

          • bonami

            I second your bingo

          • Charlie rad

            Exactly, Syria has become the biggest Proxy war of the 21st century. Russia is testing &/or supplying Syria with every weapon system they have.

        • zman

          Your point #1 is misleading. Russia voted to extend sanctions against arming the Houthis, after vetoing a proposal by UK/Us that blamed Iran for arming the Houthis, for which there is absolutely no proof.
          As for #2, the S400s are to drive a wedge between NATO and Turkey. Why would S400s be a problem for Syria? They are not attacking Turkey and Turkey has no reason to attack Syrian AF. These are customer S400s also. Would they be able to defeat Pantsir system? Everyone KNOWS why Syria was not supplied with S300s, they are not necessary, as the Pantsir system works well against short and medium range missiles, the S300s would be wasted. S300s would be controversial and would risk widening the conflict…which is only desirable for the NATO/Israeli gang. Also there is zero proof that Syria does not have S300s in their inventory, as Assad claimed possession of them years ago. The only thing provable is that they have not used them. As long as the EW systems, S200, Pantsirs and other systems are effective, why give the criminal cabal the justification they seek. How well did those missile attacks by the west work out? Turkeys agreement with the US means nothing in the long run. They will both have to endure a campaign of withering insurgency as long as they stay. What matters is how many body bags the French, Italian and US governments stand.

        • Charlie rad

          you’re an idiot. Never Take anything at FACE VALUE in GEO Politics.
          Your thought process is so simplistic-Elementary. Would take hours to bring you up to speed on each of these “moves”. A Big 3D Chess game. Especially when you’re Heavily outnumbered Like Russia.
          Idiot. So didn’t Russia come in & save Syria while they were on their last legs ? Yes. So why would Putin Surrender Russia’s Most important Port-friend to NATO ?? WAKE-UP. You sound like a progressive distorting things to meet your agenda.

      • Allan Greedspoon

        Personally, I would rather she just shut it . .

    • Garga

      Putin the zionist appeaser is 100% responsible for the holocaust in Yemen.

      No, wrong. It’s unfortunate and a shame that Russia doesn’t support Yemen, but the %100 responsibility for the genocide on Yemen is firmly on the Saudis and their direct and active backers in this aggression, the US, UK, France and other war criminals INCLUDING the Zionists.

      How nice of @Starlight to clear the real butchers (Saudis, Trump, May, Macron and above all, their Zionist handlers) and put the blame on Putin, but again, with her it’s always Putin’s fault.

      Who is this gal trying to fool with her repetitive and misleading rants, I have no idea.

      • SurfaceBook

        everyone. please understand the hasbara agenda and narrative they need to post , these points are what they posted REPEATEDLY in forums all over the internet :

        – russia weak and scared of israel
        – putin bow to netanyahu
        – russia betray iran and syria

        basically , these lies are necessary because they lost the ground war since the FUKUS failed missile attack and the following bombardment of golan heights by 55 Heavy missiles in retaliation of IAF attacks in syria. Note that israeli Irondome failed to stop even one syrian missile and the targets are IDF listening posts and intelligence center , their famous unit 8200. No casualties reported by israeli as usual , but after the bombardment IAF stopped its missile attacks immediately and Israeli Defense Minister said IDF have done enough damage to the iranian troops (fake news) in syria.

        so please tag and report as spam , all posts from these hasbarsas like Starlight , Joe Dirt , Velociraptor , potcracker and those who upvote their comments.

        they used multiple Disqus Id to pretend they here in large numbers , but the style and tone of their post indicate it is one or at most two person doing the sock puppetry game.

    Houthis can you film it next time perhaps?

  • Allan Greedspoon

    The Saudi terrorist state should be learning some valuable lessons from the whole failed charade . .but then again, with average IQ’s similar to the camels that roam the Arabian deserts, they probably haven’t . .

  • Smaug

    I saw this in another news sourse, it needs confirmation because so far the Houthis are the only sourse.

    Great job, Yemen!
