Houthis Use Missiles And Drones In Coordinated Attack On Millitary Targets In Southern Saudi Arabia

Illustrative image

On September 2, the Yemeni Air Force and the Yemeni Missiles Forces [both loyal to the Houthis] carried out a coordinated attack on several military positions in the southwestern Saudi province of Jizan.

In details, the Yemeni Missiles Forces launched a Badir-1 “ballistic missiles” on a position of the Saudi military in Jizan, while armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) of the Yemeni Air Force bombed several gatherings of Sudanese soldiers in the province.

Later, a spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition, Colonel Turki al-Malaki, said that the Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RSAD) tracked and intercepted a “ballistic missile” of the Houthis, which was heading towards Jizan. According to Col. al-Malaki, the missile was launched from the northern Yemeni province of Saada, which is the homeland of the Houthis.

“The missile was heading towards the city of Jizan and was deliberately launched to target civilian and populated areas. The Royal Saudi Air Defense Force (RAF) managed to intercept and destroy the missile, the interception didn’t result in any casualties” the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) quoted Col. al-Malaki as saying.

The Saudi-led coalition will likely respond to this coordinated attack by targeting positions of the Houthis in Saada, as it has done many times before.

      That’s what they’re doing since day one+++ But it seems Saudi money is infinite.

        The Jewish House of Saud will probably have to face a Coup d’Etat in the near future…..thanks to the Houthis: Warriors on FlipFlops….Wahhabism should End….

          I posted what I believe is the dynamic that has developed to set the stage for the coming coup. You may find the twist quite interesting and perhaps ironic.

      • IMHO

        Saudi money, American weapons.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Don’t forget the British weapons, support technicians and military advisers as well :)

  • IMHO

    Nothing like good ole ingenuity. Keep it up and make them pay dearly for the atrocities they have wrought.

    • You can call me Al

      You mean Houthis, kick the shit and annihilate the Saudis I hope….

        KSA is going to be destroyed as a result of its Syrian and Yemeni adventures. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of head-choppers.

          ..as Maha Shiva does his dance. There must be a plan unfolding from realms afar and beyond, I’m not too sure it has the usual suspects (empire) best interests at heart and maybe not the plan they had desired.

          I pray we make it out of this w/o anything hasty set into motion which will be irreversible once deployed. It is in God’s hands, yes, but not the god of the underworld they were praying (sacrificing) to. Oops!

          Yes, force is the one thing the PTB of the empire respect. We all have the force within us. (((They))) hate us for it. Too bad! Enough of their terror campaign vs humanity!

            My bad. I meant Mahadeva, Lord Shiva. The destroyer of worlds.

        Hey Al, how’s life this wonderful Sunday? Getting ready to head over to my parent’s summer place, catch a live band. Good for the soul. He referenced the term, ‘ingenuity’, I’m not too sure we could attribute that quality to the Saudis. And, stat! I’m so grateful that this monster has finally been and being confronted and a firm, yet dynamic (always on Russia’s terms, of their own volition, asymmetric, etc) response effected.

        This phony terror war bs and associated neo-liberal propaganda and magic tricks that ‘everything is awesome!’ mindfcuk we’ve been slow-motion going through the past several decades post WW2 and post the fall of the USSR, more precisely. I feel very much hopeful and excited, yet with a heavy heart for all the innocents lost or traumatized, injured, life changed forever and still more to come. I understand from Indian Hindu/Vedic texts that we are living through Kali Yuga, the dark age. With shimmers from a time past, and yet to return!

        The golden age, Satya Yuga, may soon be upon us. Some serious spiritual (astral realms) war seems to be playing out on earth. We’ve been here before, sang Crosby, Stills, Nash & (sometimes) Young. Deja vu. Things are moving along, for better or worse; but things are in motion, there is no going back now. The universe is ever changing, sometimes destruction is nec. for rebirth, creation. There is just so much we don’t see or understand. Just in a meditative mood this afternoon. Please pardon my meanderings. ;) Holding Syria and Ukraine in my prayers.

          Kali Yuga began 5,000 years ago and has a duration of 432,000 years. Buckle up, Dorothy. We ain’t in Kansas anymore.

            Meat John Doe, close! Haha giddy with excitement at today’s Russian Aerospace activist commencing. Godspeed!

      • IMHO

        Of course I do.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Its remarkable that the Saudi’s claim to down nearly 100% of the Houthi missiles, yet the Israeli’s who are using the same systems as the Saudi’s have failed to do so :)

        • You can call me Al

          I think it is more “they failed and got shot down”; hush hush, do not say anything about the destruction and loss of life they caused. Well, I hope so anyway.

    • Icarus Tanović

      Absolutely mate. Well said. What do you think, how about to start attacking Dubai and palm island?

      • IMHO

        Yes. They are allied with the Saudis from what I understand.

  • Jim Prendergast

    Go Houthis!

  • S Melanson

    It is increasingly apparent the initiative has decisively shifted to the Houthis as the Coalition can no longer engage in any meaningful offensive. While this is bad, the situation is far worse for the coalition as even the ability to put up any effective defence is in doubt given the video evidence supplied by Houthis.

    It appears that not only are the mercenaries a farce, but the KSA military seems equally farcical. Is this why the Houthis are confident enough to engage several KSA provinces simultaneously including the highly important and strategic Jizan? Yes, but I think it goes further than this. The KSA military is in tacit revolt (insubordination and refusal to fight in the army and officers) and is permissive of a deteriorating situation on the Saudi border with Yemen to undermine MbS – once the rats abandon MbS sinking ship, there will be a coup that I expect will culminate in MsB being summarily executed. Is this assertion half baked? No it is not.

    MbS made many enemies in the military when he arrested key members of the Royal family. Add to this his completely inept handling of the war in Yemen and given he has given himself unprecedented autocratic power, he cannot shift blame as he had done before in Feb. 2018 – sacking the generals to get a fresh new start in Yemen. Well the freshness wore off pretty quickly as setbacks mounted to the point that the Coalition could actually be crushed in the field of battle.

    While the mercenaries do not want to sign up as it is a death sentence, it is also the KSA military that does not want to fight for MsB as giving him any victories will only strengthen his hand. No one wants to fight for this madman and so the defeats will continue until his overthrow. MbS set his bed on fire, and now he must sleep in it.

    • FlorianGeyer

      You make a very logical assessment in what is an illogical war of genocide supported by the US and UK in particular.

      The US and UK Elite have nailed themselves financially to the mast of the Saudi ship that is taking in water.

      Non ideological “Mercenaries (are ) a farce” , they worship money and fully realise that money is of no use when they are dead or crippled.

  • Icarus Tanović

    Annihilation of Wahabistani orcs is on the way.

  • Tom Tom

    THIS is the moment to launch all out attacks with missiles.

  • LR captain

    i’ll just say this ballistic missile to distract air defenses and or hit strategic target.
    Armed drones to strike enemy troops gathering points.
    then use your troops to move on enemy positions.

    not only do houthis now have air support and are using in effectively.
    not only air they making gains into Saudi Arabia.
    not have stopped the saudis from taking their last port.
    not only are they reversing Saudi gains from the previous year.
    But now they are forcing back the Saudi led forces in central Yemen ruining any plans for operations there.

    In my opinion i think houthis are tracking any Saudi troop moments and hitting them with 1-2 punch. With hopes of preventing any major attack.

  • Felix D (TUPPERWARE PARTY)

    The Wahhabistani Orcs routinely target schools, marriage parties, children’s buses, picnics, etc. So how can this murderous Orc, Col. al-Maliki complain about civilians being targeted with any hint of sincerity?

  • Brother Ma

    The Houthis give great hope to the little guys who have to fight against a major power in future. They have effectively rewritten the manual on Guerrila Warfare/conventional war hybrid Warfare.
    As long as you have some conventional defence forces still viable and some external powers not against you ,there is hope. It may take your country back to the Stone Age temporarily but that may change if you win the war.
