In Video: Saudi-led Coalition Warplanes Intercept Houthi Suicide Drones Heading To Riyadh

Support SouthFront

On September 11, the Saudi-led coalition released a video showing the interception of Houthi suicide drones heading to the Kingdom.

A day earlier, the Houthis announced that they had attacked a “high-value target” in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, with three Samad-3 suicide drones a Zulfiqar ballistic missile. The attack was a response to the Saudi siege on Yemen and recent coalition airstrikes.

The Saudi-led coalition’s video proves that all three Houthi drones were shot down by Saudi warplanes before reaching their designated target.

Usually, Houthi drones are intercepted by F-15 warplanes of the Royal Saudi Air Force armed with air-to-air missiles like the AIM-120 AMRAAM and the AIM-9 Sidewinder.

The coalition is yet to provide an evidence that the Zulfiqar ballistic missile was also interpreted. This may mean that the missile managed to hit its target in the Saudi capital. The upcoming few days will likely reveal more information on the attack.

The Houthis are once again stepping up their drone and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia. The Saudi-led coalition may escalate its operations in Yemen in response.

Russia, China, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey axis emerging in Asia
Reports circulating on international media indicate that there is an
emerging alliance between the states of Russia, China, Pakistan, Iran
and Turkey. A tweet sheds light on the reasons behind this emerging
alliance, it states, “According to Russian defense analyst Michael
Boris, due to the policies of the Indian Prime Minister, a mutual
alliance of Russia, China, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey is emerging in Asia
and India is becoming isolated in its neighboring countries.”

World_Eye

Did u just Copy and Past all this.

PZIVJ

He posted the link at bottom, source zeroheddge.com
If it was HiaNd material, you would see a lot more anger and bold font. :)

HiaNd

You know me so well that is embarrassing :)

The problem is that I am getting tired of myself and the others

All this “conversations” with so little credible sources, suppositions, weird theories and what not, is just looking like giant waste of time.
Secrets are meant to be secret and we know jack shit most of the time so we are in business of guessing mixed with incompetence which gives that specific quality to our analysis and conclusions.

HiaNd

There is link underneath.
Doesn’t it look like an article?

George King

He wrote “Reports circulating on international media” and then went on to name and credit each with the original statements and then of course left a reference link to the material/s. A good article inside a comment, well written and there is nothing wrong with quoting sources accurately, this is not plagiarism but good reporting.

Paul

Stop your Russian proponganda.Russians are getting fucked in Ukraine and Syria.Pakistan and Iran are dead broke.Turkey will never make an alliance with Russia as it hates Russia.

HiaNd

It is not my “propaganda” but article linked to the other similar article.
So I find it interesting because it is different from what we can see every day.

Russians are not “getting fucked” anywhere despite the fact that their military is opposed to NATO and many other enemies..
Your India despite all your population is 2nd rate power comparing to Russia so do not get carried away.
You are person with issues and one hardly can get decent comment from you ever.

occupybacon

Upvote for not getting hysterical :)

HiaNd

Down voted because

no matter what
you stay a bot.

occupybacon

I’m not a simple bot, I’m a fuck machine

HiaNd

You don’t have to brag about being everybody’s bitch…but than, whatever makes you happy…

cechas vodobenikov

your stupidity is tiresome
India economy contracted by 25% in only 6 months

cechas vodobenikov

possible
Turkey Russia trade is enormous
Difficult to predict

occupybacon

Enormous if you live in Burkina Faso

HiaNd

Burkina Faso is still above Ukraine.

occupybacon

If Turkish drones bought by Ukraine, will suddenly stop working, there will be other NATO countries that can sell new drones :)

Антон С

Burkina Faso in translation is the land of good people. So yes, they far above bad hohols.)

HiaNd

“Difficult to predict” is best estimation so far with which I agree 100%.
Turks are opportunists, today “allay” tomorrow enemy.

Антон С

Looks like absurd and hoax. If you want, I’ll try to explain with details.

HiaNd

No …what is to explain?!

I have just posted because different article.
Russia-China-Iran is reality already and Pakistan is some bizarre allay of China also.
Only Turkey…that is pretending to not to be part of the NATO is not clear yet which direction they might go.

Антон С

1. SCO. All these states are members of SCO or observers. Why to exclude India in a favor of China? Or even Pakistan, it’s ridiculous. And you know, India is important partner of Russia.

2. India is not racist, it’s obvious. That guy Mihail Boris is not a russian and looks like unreal person. He should be Borisov. I checked his “Twitter” page, 80 tweets (all in english) and over 20 thousand followers. Too much for real person. Can’t find any info about him besides “Twitter”. It’s very strange and looks like pakistanian agitation. Pakistan is indian Ukraina, that’s why they hate India so much.

3. Named states are too big and too different to create alliance. I can believe in alliance of Russia and China, but not in alliance of Turkey and China while Turkey is member of the Atlantic pact.

HiaNd

WTF Anton?!
I feel like hostage now…. you have jumped on occasion to “explain” to me something that we basically think the same!

Russia would NEVER exclude India in anything – quite opposite!
Actually main Russian pre-condition imposed to China, for accepting Pakistan in SCO, was to accept India as well !
Toady both countries are members while Ian is still observer (because of sanctions at the time)
Russia is very close with India for pragmatic reason (in the case things turn awry with China they can always counter-balance China with India)

Of course that we all know about Turk-NATO memberships…so talking about any kind of partnerships is totally premature

occupybacon

These countries GDP combined is smaller than Japan+India

HiaNd

What the fuck are you talking about you Ukrainian brainless zombie?!
World industrial Super Power China is 2nd just behind US (US has RIGGED GDP since US produces nothing apart from weapons for export) and Russia and Turkey are top world economies !

occupybacon

Yes, so? 3rd is Japan and 5th India.
Together beat China and Rusdia, Turkey, Iran, Pakustan are mudgets.

90% of Russian exports are natural resources, 10% finite goods. That’s the proportion of a banana republic. In contrast USA, China exports 10% natural resources and 90% finite goods – that help middle class. Japan doesn’t export natural resources at all.

USA exports 500 Billion services alone, that means software, maintenance, advertizing, training.

You are an economic illiterate like 90% kids here.

HiaNd

You are always talking about banal GDP chart of course since that one doesn’t give accurate situation

The only accurate is “GDP based on PPP” (purchasing power evaluation, which shows true standard of living and purchasing power!)
See for yourself that China is on TOP position despite US – RIGGED GDP (by WALL STREET MACHINATIONS

https://knoema.com/nwnfkne/world-gdp-ranking-2019-gdp-by-country-data-and-charts

occupybacon

That shit PPP is made by Indians to look better than Japan. Of course an Indian food is cheaper than Japanese food. That PPP shit can’t consider living standards, neither white trash Russians like you that probably think your priducts have the same quality as German products since PPP shows parity between Germany and Russia…

HiaNd

Moron trying to weasel out of realistic, more sophisticated comparison.
Hypothetical EXAMPLE :

If China can buy 3 or 4 anti aircraft systems for million dollars converted to yuan’s and US can only buy one anti aircraft system for the million dollars than that is the most logical way to compare the countries because represents real situations !!
Of course even this simple example is too complicated for you !

occupybacon

They don’t buy, they build themselves the aircraft carriers and a Chinese carrier is inferior to an American carrier from all points of view. But probably you think Admiral Kuznetsov is equal to any US nuclear powered carrier, which prove my point that you can judge only quantity not quality.

HiaNd

You are mumbling nonsense…There are Russian, Chinese weapons systems that are better or at least as good as US weapons but much cheaper.
Kuznetsov is old Soviet “lighter” carrier of about 60 000 tons almost half size of the US super-carriers and of course can’t be “better’.
All that is irrelevant since Russia can sink all US air carriers with no problem with their hyper-sonic missiles like Kinzhal and Zircon against which US doesn’t have any defenses

occupybacon

And how is that related to PPP?

HiaNd

It is related to your comment and you don’t have clue “how it is related”???!!
AGAIN:
There are plenty of Russian & Chinese weapons systems that are better and some are at least as good as US weapons but much cheaper.
They have MUCH MORE BANG FOR BUCK than US and that is how it is related to PPP.
And now get lost since I’m not responsible for you being retarded.
I have other things to do in my life than explaining to you all day long!

occupybacon

Much bang doesn’t mean better quality. In some niches Russia is more advanced than USA, but mostly not. Having 10 drones that range 2000 km are better than 100 drones that range 200 km.

HiaNd

FUCK your crappy drones!
Russia is totally superior in every kind of missile technology !
When your air carriers can’t even come close to Russia to avoid being sinked by
Russian hyper-sonic missiles (on distance to at least 4000km from Russian coast to stay on safe distance) !
There are no possible use of fighter jets, no drones, NOTHING, without possibility to come on reasonable distance from Russia!!!
—————
Hyper-sonic missile ( IN SERVICE ) Kinzhal
Operational range:
2000+ km (MiG-31K)[3]
3000 km (Tu-22M3)
Maximum speed Mach 10–Mach 12

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kh-47M2_Kinzhal

occupybacon

Aircraft carriers are not made to participate in a nuclear war. But Russian battleships need ‘oceanic’ tugboats to go to deep blue waters. Russian navy is a joke. Lol

HiaNd

With or without tugboats your air carriers must stay at least 4000km from the nearest Russian coast in the case of war.
In other words they are useless !!

occupybacon

That’s because you believe Russia is so important, whatever USA does, has Russia in mind. USA, UK and Japan had carriers when Russia had famine. You are just poor people.

HiaNd

IsraHell – US – UK – Saudi axis of evil must lose the war.

Cromwell

Those Houthis know how to deal with filth; they should drone the Palace where those fat fucks live.

Kenny Jones ™

Iran embargo ends October, then Yemen will get Bavar373 to down those jets

World_Eye

Finally stupid Wahhabi they realized that they have 90% to shot these drones with Jets instead with the stupid US patriot air killfensse. See its much more easy sort of speaking. But they were lucky this time.

Kenny Jones ™

Soon those jets too will be shot down, when Iran embargo ends in October, the Houthis will get some good new toys, with Bavar373 the airspace will be closed completely

Rhodium 10

it could be military drills and old videos….I dont see samad-3 drone

Phoron

$150,000 zogbux worth of fuel spent scrambling a pair of fighters to shoot down $150 zogbux worth of suicide drones.

HiaNd

It is still better than missing drone with $200 000 ground to air missile

Pave Way IV

You’re right. Except the Saudis (meaning their paid help, probably U.S. troops) manning the Patriot launchers usually send two or three up against a target at a time. Still, I’m guessing the Saudi monarchy is completely indifferent about any money spent on missiles, aircraft, fuel or paid monkeys to run them – providing the U.S. government isn’t covering the monarchy’s asses for the bill. I know the Saudis are bankrupt, but they’ll always find/steal money for evil mil toys. Not so much for feeding their citizens though.

HiaNd

Agree with all you say…

Rule of thumb is to sand 2 missiles against any fighter jet…but since we are talking about Americans here..Sending 2 missiles even against slow flying targets (Saudi’s are paying) is very big probability (specially because they have paid premium bribe by US-Raytheon for using as many missiles as possible )

Icarus Tanović

Who can trust Saudis?

Assad must stay

i sure as hell dont

Pave Way IV

Why, Americans, of course. CNN fact-checks all this stuff for us. We’re kind of brain dead like that. Goes double for our government, but only as long as the Saudi bribes keep flowing in to U.S. leaders pockets. When that ends, we’ll slaughter the entire al-Saud monarchy, imprison Wahhabi clerics, subject them to years of torture, then make them describe their role in creating radical jihadistas. We then hunt down the the Wahhabi jihadists and returturn them to a gigantic deep pit in teh desert to use as a prison. When it starts getting crowded, fire up the D3 and bury them alive. Maybe a few cardboard signs identifying them,

Icarus Tanović

Before that Yemenis will destroy Aramco and other petrochemical facilities, it will be desert as it is.
Well, there are rumours that Vietnam is about to target American waters close toHawai, and that they will attack UAE, Saudi forces in Yemen.
And D9’s are machines of evil.

Potato Man

It is funny, “SAUDI-LED COALITION WARPLANES INTERCEPT HOUTHI SUICIDE DRONES”
I wonder why they have to use their jets to intercept Houthi drones, do the Wahhabi Sunnis know what is Air different system?
Or is that why they making deal with Zion state….LMFAO

cechas vodobenikov

can this be trusted?
