Early on April 15, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) carried out a large-scale attack with 11 drones and missiles on several targets in the southern Saudi province of Jizan.

According to Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the group, seven Badir and Saeer missiles targeted a facility of the Saudi oil giant Aramco. At the same time, four Samad-3 and Qasef-2K suicide drones hit a number of MIM-104 Patriot air-defense systems.

“We promise the Saudi regime with larger and wider operations if it continues its aggression and siege on our country,” the spokesman said in a statement.

The Saudi-led coalition claimed that its air-defense means had intercepted five missiles and four drones over Jizan. No evidence to back these claims was presented.

Moreover, footage from the province showed large explosions and massive fires. One video even shows a direct hit by a missile. The footage confirm that the Houthis large attack was successful to some extent.

The attack is the most recent in a series of military developments in Yemen:

  • The Liaison and Coordination Officers’ Operations Room (loyal to Ansar Allah) reported 123 ceasefire violations in al-Hudaydah during the past 24 hours;
  • On April 14, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 5 airstrikes on the Sarwah area;
  • On April 14, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 4 airstrikes on the Madghal area;
  • On April 14, Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted an airstrike on the Zaher area;
  • On April 15, Ansar Allah reportedly attacked an Aramco facility and other sensitive targets in Jizan with 11 missiles and drones;
  • On April 15, Ansar Allah attacked Sahn al-Jinn military camp with two missiles;
  • On April 15, clashes between Ansar Allah and Saudi-led forces continued in the east of Madghal district;

The Houthis’ attack on Jizan will not likely push Saudi Arabia to reconsider its war on Yemen. The Kingdom appears to be determined to go on with its costly war, despite the recent setbacks.

    Only yet another confirmation of a known for a long time, the anti-air defense of the West are suck.

    1. Well their oil installations are pretty good intercept systems, we have to give them that

      1. Lone Ranger says:

        Also nothing has a higher hit ratio than an Arleigh Burke class guided missile cruiser against container ships…

          The guided missile destroyer USS John S McCain use kamikaze mode against tankers. Very effective mode.

    2. viktor ziv says:

      Nope mate, those do work. For many years I thought MiM’s are firing missiles to shutdown drones but no, it’s the oposite, MiM’s attract drones and missiles to itself. The only drawback is the number of the MiMs. :)

  2. Jihadi Colin says:

    Why target Patriots? Let them be fired at your drones, they’ll fall on the enemy and do your work for you.

    1. Selbstdenker says:

      Actually, this was the plan. But as the system seems to be so immature, it didn’t even fire…

    2. John Brown says:

      To humiliate the USSA showing Patriots can’t even protect themselves and to strike fear into the Saudis.

    3. Not a fan of Israel says:

      The Russians built point defenses while the Yanks figured they didn’t need defense. LOL.

  3. Emad Irani says:

    this time Ansarallah brothers went straight to the Patriot Systems hahaha

    1. Frank says:

      The US junk PAC 3 was totally destroyed.

  4. Boycott-Saudi!!! says:

    Saudi-Wahabi-Scum gotta step up their move if they seriously thinking gonna conquer Yemen sooner before Houthis turn them into dust first, probably they should considering order a dozen of minutemen missiles from Biden. That gonna be all hell breaks loose for anyone, including the anti-christ regime in Hell Aviv.

  5. verner says:

    probably better for mohammed bin salman to make peace with the houthis and break with the jews who so far as advisers to the clown prince have failed in every instance and the clown prince has failed to see that while the jews have improved their positions vis a vis Iran, his own positions vis a vis the houthis are getting worse by the minute. he’s probably to stupid and vain to see what is written in large letters but the best advise is to leave any cooperation with the jews and forget he was taken in by the prime slime, jared kushner. but and again he’s most likely to vain but it’s never too late to correct your earlier mistakes.

    1. Faisal al Al-Mahdi of Iraq says:

      lol. clown prince may not be stupid, but he is very evil. He is confirmed by Imam Mahdi (AS) as a key end of times character and is a satanic follower. Let the fire from Yemen burn Arabia, the traitor arabs who follow the satanic Zionists.Vengeance for Imam Hussein (AS) aginst the forces of Satan.

    2. Not a fan of Israel says:

      Nah. The Houthis should take the fight into Saudi and let them know that they should NEVER have started a war with Yemen.

      Flatten Saudi Arabia. No ceasefires, flatten it.

      No let up till the Saudi people cut the House of Saud to ribbons.

  6. Assad must stay says:

    very nice houthis, i hope it really hurt the suadi scumshits

  7. Blas de Lezo says:

    Couldn’t have happened to nicer Wahhabis.

    1. Not a fan of Israel says:

      Cut them inta itty bitty pieces, eh? Mbs should take note. LOL.

  8. Icarus Tanović says:

    I just waited for this to happens, drone attack on Patriot batteries.

    Karma does work!
