Houthis Target Millitary Camp In Southern Saudi Arabia With Badir-1 “Ballistic Missile”

Illustrative image

On August 25, the Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had launched a Badir-1 “ballistic missile” at a camp of the Saudi military in the southern kingdom’s province of Najran. According to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV, this strike is a part of the “response and deter” policy of the Houthis and their allies.

The Badir-1, which was first revealed on March 22, is in fact a locally-made copy of the Iranian-made solid fuel artillery rocket, Fajir-3. The rocket has a high accuracy and a speed over 4,5 Mach, according to the Yemeni Missiles Force.

Minutes later, the al-Arabiya TV reported that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RSAD) tracked and intercepted a “ballistic missile” of the Houthis over the southern province of Jizan, west of Najran. According to the UAE-based TV channel, the Houthis have launched 181 “ballistic missiles” at Saudi Arabia since the outbreak of the Yemeni war.

The Saudi-led coalition usually respond to these missile strikes by bombing positions of the Houthis in the northern Yemeni province of Saada. However, this is not enough to stop missile strikes by the Houthis.

    emm.. no. What the article says is true only when the missile doesn’t hit their [always military] target.

    If it hits, they respond by bombing civilians. Go out of their ways to find a target full of women and children. Bomb schools, hospitals, funerals, weddings. Sometimes even come back after the first run to kill the medical and rescue workers. And after all that, whine that Iran gave Houthis missiles to kill us.

    PS. Sen. Johan McCain, an staunch supporter of Saudis’ and Zionists’ crimes and genocide died a few hours ago. Losing one’s family is always hard. That being said, I think the world is a little bit better without him. At least until his [always worse] replacement comes forward. Good riddance.

      Great riddance. Big thanks for the info on McCain.

    • BL

      the kikes already have a replacement for John Mc-Insane. His name is Tom Cotton and he’s an even bigger Zionist whore than Mc-Insane.

        well at least mccain is gone, so theres not as much zionism as there was lol

    • Enlightened Truth Seeker

      I celebrate the death of traitor John McCain!

      May the Houthi’s missiles strike true and kill many Saudis, the lowest of all the races of humanity! They did 9/11- see the 28 pages- and yet my America fights for them. May they all be ground into dust or killed in nuclear fire!

      I am not so sure that McCain is so responsible but rest of what you say is evident and true. Well said man.

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      yes good riddance lol, he did nothing to create peace or harmony in the world or in the country

    They seem to be focusing targeting Saudi bases in Najran with missiles which soften defences. Would love to see the city of Najran fall which will push Salman over the cliff – bye bye….

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      i hope the missiles are actually hitting the defenses tho and not being intercepted

      • FlorianGeyer

        US made missiles do not have a very high success rate and even the brand new and shiny ‘Davids Sling’ made in Israel even failed to shoot down two Katusha type rockets over the Occupied Golan Hight’s a few weeks ago :)

        • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          hahaha pathetic!

      • S Melanson

        As FloriaGeyer says, the system provides a rather poor missile shield. I also point out that the Coalition reports a 100% success rate in interception with no Houthi missiles reaching their targets. Such preposterous claims we can readily dismiss as total BS since:

        (1) Coalition claims imply an effectiveness that far exceeds the effectiveness of any known missile defence system ever built and exceeds even the highly exaggerated estimates given by the US military.

        (2) Despite claims of successful interception, there have been numerous accounts by locals in the vicinity of an intended missile target that contradict such claims – video evidence as well as people reporting hearing/seeing explosions on the ground with smoke and fire readily visible.

        (3) Shortly following each Houthi announcement of a missile strike and the intended target, the Coalition announce successful interception of the missile. If the Coaliion were truly intercepting prior to Missile reaching target, I would expect there would be at least some Coalition reports of interception released PRIOR to Houthi public announcement. That interception is reported in every case only a few minutes after Houthi public announcement is very suspect.

          Would be awesome if houthis could have some guys on the ground with cameras recording the missiles hitting their targets, I saw a video on youtube of KSA patriots trying to intercept houthis missiles, but it seemed like the interceptors would just come right back down lmao
