In Video: Saudi Warplanes Destroy Houthi Ballistic Missile At Ma’rib Front

File image

On April 1, the Saudi-led coalition claimed that its air forces had destroyed a ballistic missile of the Houthis (Ansar Allah).

Coalition warplanes targeted the ballistic missile, which was loaded on a launcher in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib, with a pinpoint airstrike. The coalition claimed that the Houthis were planning to launch the missile at civilian areas in Ma’rib.

The Saudi Press Agency shared a video of the airstrike. However, the target seen in the video can’t be identified. This leaves the coalition’s claims unverified.

A few hours after the Saudi-led coalition announcement, the Houthis hit King Khalid Air Base in the Kingdom’s southern province of ‘Asir with two Qasef-2K suicide drones.

The coalition claimed that the two drones were intercepted by its air-defense means over the city of Khamis Mushait which is located near the air base. The coalition’s claims are yet to be confirmed.

A day earlier, four suicide drones launched by the Houthis from Yemen struck “sensitive” and “important” targets in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

The recent attacks by the Houthis demonstrate the Saudi-led coalition failure in Yemen. So far, the coalition has failed to neutralize the Houthis’ advanced offensive capabilities. Furthermore, Saudi-backed forces continue to lose ground. This is particularly clear on Ma’rib front, where the Houthis are advancing.
