Never Ending Attacks: Houthis Strike Another Saudi Airport

Illustrative image, source: the Houthis media wing

On April 9 afternoon, the Houthis (as Ansar Allah is known) launched yet another drone attack on the southern region of Saudi Arabia.

In an official statement, a spokesman for the Yemeni group said that a “sensitive post” in Abha International Airport in the province of ‘Asir was targeted with a Qasef-2K suicide drone.

The Qasef-2K drone is a copy of the Iranian-made Ababil-2. The drone has a range of 150 km and is armed with high-explosive fragmentation, HE-FRAG, warhead equipped with an approximately fuse.

“This targeting comes as a legitimate response to the aggression’s escalation and the complete blockade on Yemen,” the spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, said in the statement.

A few minutes after the Houthi announcement, the Saudi-led coalition claimed that a drone had been shot down over the city of Khamis Mushait in ‘Asir.

The Houthis stepped up their drone attacks on Saudi Arabia in the last few days. On April 8, two attacks targeted King Khalid Air Base in ‘Asir and another targeted Jizan Regional Airport in the province of Jizan.

So far, the Saudi-led coalition has failed to neutralize the Houthi offensive capabilities that seem to be growing by the day.

    The British SAS will likely be engaged further in Yemen. Their tactics have not changed much since they were deployed there in the 60’s, so, I am sure the Houthis are being vigilant against sabotage and the murder of their key assets.

      Important breaking news. Saudi Coalition abandoning Marib with Houthi forces engaging last defensive line.

      In July 2018 I predicted the Houthi insurgency would not be defeated and in fact would go on the offensive against the coalition and bring the war into Saudi Arabia until Saudi Arabia sued for peace. This proved correct but I was wrong on how long it would take. MBS had much greater staying power that I imagined. But the fall of Marib will be for MBS his Waterloo.

      The war is over.

        There are so many variables connected to the planned crisis the world us now enduring.
        The traditional method to distract and enslave ( by forced conscription) populations of a current empire whose decaying fiscal power is facing hyper inflation, has been war. War is always about trade in goods and chattels, and targetted nations populations are regarded as chattels.

        Couple that with the current messianic Global Warming religion that seeks to severely restrict the leisure and living standards of ALL ‘advanced economies ‘worker bees’, and the future is looking rather bleak :)

        The corrupt Saudi regime has been financially harvested by the corrupt US/UK regimes. Do the Saudi Royals now need to conserve their cash?

        Will Erdogan flood the Yemen with Jewhadies?

    Just keep it coming now. Target warships too.

  3. Lone Ranger says:

    Good job.
    Saudisis shall fall.
    CIA, Mi6 and Mossad will cry and rage :)

    its a wrong assumption to believe that ansarallah weapons are copies of iranian weapons since unfortunally yemen doesnt has the capabilities to produce the materials needed to copy iranian drones and iran didnt make it easy for yemenis to simpy buy iran did teach them how to fish themselves and the fact that they used a fishing hook simiar to our design doesnt mean much because in future they will most probably move into other direction than we do

    the underestimating ansarallah is a great problem of those who look at it nowadays but ansarallah is nothing one should underestimate and i can imagine ansarullah creating in future their own technologies

    Bravo to the brave and righteous fighters of the Houthis… Time to beat these invading child murdering bastards back to their hell hole of Saudi Arabia or face certain death!

    Time for the criminal Saudi mass murdering invaders to get the hell out and stay out!
