Houthis Target Saudi-Backed Forces In Southern Yemen With Medium-Range Ballistic Missile

The Houthis announced on April 8 that they had targeted a large camp of Saudi-backed forces in the southern Yemeni province of Abyan with a “ballistic missile.”

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said the al-Ajarish camp, in the district of Lawdar, was struck with a Qassim “ballistic missile,” claiming that dozens of Saudi-backed fighters were killed or injured.

“Enemy forces in the al-Ajarish camp in Abyan were targeted in the morning as they were preparing to launch an attack in the direction of the province of al-Bayda’,” the spokesman said.

According to the spokesman, the missile strike was a response to the recent escalation by the Saudi-led coalition in al-Bayda. Coalition warplanes carried out dozens of airstrikes on different parts of the province over the last few days.

Several sources confirmed that the al-Ajarish camp was struck. Locals claimed that at least ten Saudi-backed fighters were killed or injured. These claims are yet to be verified.

Qassim is reportedly a precision-guided medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM). It was first used by the Houthis back in August of 2019. However, the Yemeni group is yet to release any details about it.

The missile strike on the al-Ajarish camp confirms that the Houthis’ offensive capabilities are still growing, despite the immense pressure by the Saudi-led coalition and even the U.S.

    sooner or later the houthis will be in a position to string mohammed bin salman up in a lamp post and televise the whole thing for the world to see. like the yankeetwats did with Saddam. and once there it will be time to finish off the thieving murdering and lying jews occupying Palestine – the alliance ‘Iron doooom’ will make that a certainty so the jews better have some good rafts and life-vests if they wan’t to get out of the country they almost succeeded stealing while the world was mum – 6 million in the holocaust- yeahhhhh sure as a klucking bell!

    Good news out of Syria: Russian AF launched its largest aerial reconnaissance of Idlib since last March before the ceasfire. 10 fighter jets including SU-34’s, Su-24M2’s, and SU-35’s circled over the entire Idlib province for at least an hour seeking out and locating lots of Turkish/al-qaeda targets. Very likely they located the recently deployed turkish mim-23 HawK air defense systems and Koral jamming devices. Will have to destroy them if they pose a threat 😉

    P.s, Syrian Airforce SU-22 and SU-24 also accompanied Russian Airforce during these recent recon flights. STRONK ottoman air defense said “not 1 single regime airplane in idlib sky” haha
