    Shock and Awe… Houthi style!

    Very clear and concisely presented in SF’s annotations. (thank you)

  • ColinNZ

    As Elijah J Magnier has frequently said, ‘the rules of engagement have changed’.

    The GCC dictators now know they can be hit, and hit bad.

    And so does the anglozionist empire.

    • d’Artagnan

      A single drone can shut down Dubai airport for good.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        The UAE pimps know it and are kissing Iran’s arse 24/7. A single missile or even base bleed artillery strike from Qeshm island at the Burj pimphouse will be the end of UAE and glass shards all over the region. The Pentagon faggots know it and will never take on Iran. Oil markets are shitting bricks over 10 toy drones, just imagine what Iran with real weapons will do. Oil just jumped to $100 on future trading. Putin and Rouhani are laughing their heads off :)

        The White House said on Sunday President Donald Trump may still meet his
        Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, despite the US accusing Iran of
        masterminding drone attacks on Saudi Arabian oil facilities.

      • Ashok Varma

        All the family run Persian Gulf Arab little fiefdoms are very vulnerable and should not antagonize Iran and stop the war on Yemen. Bahrain will simply disappear along with UAE.

  • Can’t say I’m seeing substantial damage and debris.

    • chris chuba

      You don’t need to have a big hole in the ground to cause significant damage. I’d rather have pin pricks in 4 different buildings causing fires than one building that looks demolished but I am a bit surprised that they announced that 10 suicide drones were that efficient in hitting their targets.

      My understanding of how the drones work is that they are only manually guided at the first stage and then use either gps or inertial guidance for the rest of the journey in order to make them resilient against jamming. Granted, these are stationary targets but you need really good coordinates clocked in to hit them with any precision.

      • PZIVJ

        The 4 tanks pictured are very large GPS targets. Perhaps some separation units? These would be more important than the larger storage tanks. Four punctures shown are from the west.

      • Where’s the debris from drone explosions and raging fires? Come on, that place is cleaner than my garage. Amazing how people see what they want to believe.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Get some glasses pronto :) why do you think the global oil markerts are shitting bricks and soon you will at the gas pump if you have a car.

          • Albert Pike

            Well Pearl Harbor was a ‘made’ event – they knew before what was going to happen, just because the US entered WW2 doesn’t make it less ‘made’. I don’t have even to start on 9/11. This one here is mixture of all of them. Why was there no anti aircraft action – it’s not far from the hot spot Persian Gulf. Nobody can tell me that they couldn’t pick up 10 slow flying drones. Riad Airport was attacked before, why were the Saudi’s so careless? No this thing is smelly, also if you count the points of impact – then there are more then 10. Must have been some very mean lean hardened Houthi MIRV like bunker buster drones, which they used there…

    • d’Artagnan

      The intended damage was done, the psychological impact is far worse as it clearly showed the failure of trillions of dollars worth of US and western weaponry.

      • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

        but muh Patriot Missile invincible :(
        toronto cunto said it could shoot down alien spacecraft

        • Zionism = EVIL

          The Jew scum trolls have disappeared since Buqaiq blew up :)

  • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

    some people thought if they don’t look completely destroyed, then what’s the success. However, this equipment is sensitive, high maintenance, and extremely expensive. A small hole in one rig or tank is enough to render it completely useless or put it in line for months of repair. Either way very precise hits and it caused huge fires and damaged/destroyed 10+ components of the fields so success overall

    • grumpy_carpenter

      Petroleum fires burn at 1950 F. and that fire raged for hours. They are going to be tearing out and replacing a lot of that refinery. KBR / Koch Bros / Dick Cheney are going to make a fortune off this.

    • Yeah, drones hit, explode, fires, and the place is still cleaner than my garage.

      • PZIVJ

        Perhaps we need to look a little bit closer.

        • Ashok Varma

          The damage has been severe and India is asking for a waiver of unilateral US sanctions on Iranian oil. Only Iran has the excess capacity to fill the void.

        • Open your eyes, please. This is the ONLY suggestion of substantial damage in all the red-lined areas. Others are inconsistent with explosive drones.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        If you get your head out of your dumbarse and see the intended impact on the OIL MARKETS maybe you can the damage sunshine :)

      • RamboDave

        The four identical impacts on the round structures look more like kinetic impacts rather than explosions. And, it would have to be something weighing at least 100 lbs.with high velocity to punch a hole about 6 feet wide like that. Perhaps the glide bomb warheads were intentionally not detonated on impact, thus giving the impression that it was a small drone explosion that made these identical 6′ holes in the structures.
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j09uoOvi1tk

        Just ask yourself … If Iran has drones that can hit four round structures like this in the exact same spot, undetected, that means they could fly one of these things through an aircraft carrier hanger door sitting out in the Indian Ocean.

        Obviously , it wasn’t Iran that did this. It was probably Israel.

        Israel recently launched small glide bombs against Iraqi Shia militias in Iraq. And, they did this either from US Coalition territory or from Azerbaijan. The bombs can glide 60 miles after being released. Here is a video of what I am talking about.

        • Did you see the videos of the fire, and hear the many explosions in those videos? Where is evidence (lots of debris, scorching)n of that in these pictures? Which look . . . photoshopped.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Let me give you some more good news, Hezbollah is very smart in releasing information, just like Iran. Today for the first time I saw an Iranian colonel with a handcuffed briefcase like the “nuclear football” (codes for nuke weapons launch) walk behind Rouhani and special advisor Veleyati (ex-FM and very close to Khamenei). This is an obvious message to the dumbass Americunt arseholes not to fuck with Iran and then just an hour ago Hezbollah released this image for the Zionist bed shitters.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          He has been arrested in California on a fraud bench warrant and is a black brothers bitch in Orange County jail.

          • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

            apparently he was posting new retarded pictures on his instagram so I guess he was released. I bet since he’s a soap bar they gave him a smaller bond and he paid it so hes out of jail now. but still facing charges

    • Bob

      From images the hits are extremely precise – while the equipment is off-line the entire installation is under-performing until fully repaired. This is major KSA state owned Aramco infrastructure – when it’s off-line major operational losses are incurred – bear in mind, the KSA state budget is based on forecast daily barrel production. Unplanned significant reductions in barrel production messes with that forecast KSA state budget.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Can not be repaired for months as the fires are still burning and more drones may pay a visit soon :)

    • chris chuba

      They are used to seeing the dubious U.S. satellite photos which shows giant craters :-)

  • d’Artagnan

    The use of merely 10 drones is more of warning shot for the Saudis to stop the war in Yemen. Looks like the strikes took out the pumping stations and did the intended damage. The biggest shock if the failure of US weapons and radar systems and not a single flying object was detected, let alone intercepted. It is a colossal failure of US so-called technology and very humiliating for both Saudis and their US masters. Not looking good for Israel either as Hezbollah and Iran will not be so kind as to use only 10 drones.

    • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

      it’s funny how Syria’s antiquated BUK, KUB was able to intercept dozens of tomahawk missiles in 2018, and dozens of israeli delilahs/popeyes. yet 21st century patriot PAC-M3 failed completely against drones and cruise missiles (which US says are not advanced) LOL

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Even the Americunt GAO report dating back to 1992 stated that the patriots were total dud and could not intercept a single of crazy Saddam’s 1950’s vintage SCUD-B let alone the new generation of missiles.

        Patriot Missiles Are Made in America and Fail Everywhere

        The evidence is in: the missile defense system that the United States sells its allies on exorbitant prices is a lemon. It’s not just that falling debris in Riyadh killed at least one person and sent two more to the hospital. There’s no evidence that Saudi Arabia intercepted any missiles at all. And that raises uncomfortable questions not just about the Saudis, but about the United States, which seems to have sold them — and its own public — a lemon of a missile defense system.

      • maxii priestt

        honestly my friend, i’m still under the moon looking up at the heavens trying to wrap my head around this essential mystery. i can’t even arrive at a logical answer to this imbroglio

    • John

      I agree with your assessment of the air defenses. They were useless and that is part of why the US is so openly pissed off. It made them look like fools, very expensive fools.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        The Yemeni military’s cool and unflappable Brigadier General Yahya Sarie has just come on al-Mayadeen TV and said that more drone strikes are coming and that all foreigners should leave Saudi oil facilities.

        Yemen’s military warns foreigners to leave Saudi oil plants

        Spokesman for the Yemeni armed forces, General Yahya Sare’a, said in
        a tweet Monday that the attacks in the kingdom’s eastern region had been
        carried out by drones with normal and jet engines.

        He said Saudi Arabia should stop its “aggression and blockade on
        Yemenand stop killing our people or face massive retribution,” or see the
        Yemeni army hit the kingdom “anywhere and anytime” it chooses.

  • northerntruthseeker .

    Bravo to the Houthis!!!… I want to see them hit these bastards again and again until they get the message and get the hell out of Yemen!

  • Zionism = EVIL

    HAHAHA as I said before 10 drones from a toy store have given shits to the whole “western” world cowards, imagine what a thousand real drones and NOE cruise missiles will do to the Saudi shitheads and UAE pimps. The Pentagon faggots know it well and the orange fat old lardass is blowing hot air.

    Trump may meet Iran leader despite Saudi attacks: White House

  • Autonomous

    The oil and gas spherical separators have been damaged beyond repair. These are very difficult to manufacture and the Saudis do not have replacements readily available.

    • PZIVJ

      Are you revering to the 11 pumpkins pictured? But not all are hit. I would think contents could be vacated, and any holes would be fixed. But this would take some time.

    • Pave Way IV

      That’s the liquified natural gas side of the plant – I believe those tanks are just NG or LNG storage. Spherical separators are a lot smaller and kind of old technology.

      I kind of doubt the tanks were even hit. No flames/scorch marks (maybe on one or two). No evidence of water from the fire suppression system. Just a single, conveniently-placed black hole on each one? The drones or missiles were explosive, and these tanks had something flammable inside. Yet nothing blows up or burns? No tanks burst outwards? Seems impossible.

      The burnt parts of the production trains are pretty obvious. The smoke plume from Abqaiq sat imagery turns out to be from an emergency liquids burn pit, not from anything inside the plant. Even the gas flare stacks (just above the burn pit in the image, but not visible) were not flaring.

    • Ashok Varma

      Indian energy ministry estimates months of repairs and is seeking Iranian oil to replace the Saudi crude. Luckily, the Houthis only used ten drones and knocked off only 50% production, they can do all 100% if they wanted. Saudis should be thankful.

      • MikeH

        Looking at the number of separators that were hit, it looks like more than 10 drones used to attack. There looks to be one hole in each one of them and there are 15 from the pictures.

  • goingbrokes

    A few attack drones make OPEC policies redundant in a moment.
    No wonder Lindsay Graham is having a fit.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Wait till he sees Hezbollah’s new Iranian derivative Yakhont SSM as the images released a few minutes ago.

  • lovethemapples

    This is weird. Attack is from west side of the plant. Missile evasion?

    • chris chuba

      Yemen is SW, why is that weird?

      • lovethemapples

        South west is Sudan, Yemen is south

  • Ashok Varma

    MBS is a murderous and stupid war criminal who started this war in Yemen and with US, French and UK support and committed genocide and war crimes and what did the Saudis expect a bouquet of roses?

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Nap of the earth or NOE GPS guided precision technology. Hezbollah has just released images of whole inventory of newer supersonic missiles, notably SSM Iranian advanced derivatives of the famed Russian Yakhont. The Yemenis most likely already have them. Not looking good for Zionist bed crapper or Americunt arseholes anywhere in the region.

  • χρηστος

    just military speaking the blow is devastating. how on earth is it possible that 10 drones traveled at such a distanc without being tracked by radar or A/A batteries? given the amount of money they have invested on military equipment someone might say that they are either untrained (which is not the case since many systems are operated by foreign personnel) or the systems have been bought just for public relations reasons and they remain unused or placed in the wrong places.. They are at war. they have underestimated their opponent. they paid the price! alongside with them, western military technology became laughing stock

    • chris chuba

      Not being snitty (when people do lists it gives that impression),
      1. the vast majority of the territory has no air defenses,
      2. the air defenses they do have are concentrated on the Persian Gulf side facing Iran,
      3. U.S. equipment is expensive, missile based junk, they should have bought Russian stuff, the Russians have thwarted dozens of drone attacks in Syria.
      4. I bet the Saudis have buyers remorse and wished they had bought Russian air defenses, I’m glad those sob’s didn’t.

  • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

    lol oh boy all the INTEL fanboys on twitter are going crazy. especially Aleph Jew, Aurora Jew and ELINT Jews

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Their INTEL is so good that they detected all the 10 drones going up their arse :) ROFLMAO and then Hezbollah releases more images of its newest missiles..ROFLMAO…..

  • John

    off the chain now.

  • chris chuba

    I’m assuming that the satellite images are giving us a conventional north is top / west is left view, if so then the damage is from a south / west direction, exactly what you would expect if the strike was launched from Yemen.

    I say this because some liar Intelligence, woman, Rebecca something was just interviewed on FOX made an off the cuff reply to a question and said, ‘we know it was an Iranian strike from the direction of the attack’. I bet she’s one of those people who like to throw out arguments that sound good rather than arguments that are correct, I know the type and I despise them.

  • Duc_Palatine

    What about Patriot missile batteries what a joke

    Off topic, but on the unconditional endorsement of Bibi by Putin, and the pushback against it by Lavrov and Shoigu not reported here but by Anti-NATO Alt Media legend John Helmer:

    Did the houthis do it or is it a fake to boost the ipo price?

    • Toronto Tonto

      Iran and Russia did it to boost prices .

  • Xoli Xoli

    The question remain.Who attack Russian base in Syria with drones which have western technology for testing purposes on Russian air defences.

    Who ever does this is the culprit which is USA,Britain, France, Germany and Israel.

    USA,FRANCE,BRITISH wants to get rid of Saudi Arabia. With the hope to steal Iran oil with worldwide call out to attack with all the affected countries help.But this wont happens.Only Satanyahu out of cruelty and desperation will attack first with hope to be join by USA.

    Any attack on Iran will backfire and result in both USA and Israel Turkey defeat.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Saudi Arabia must stop Yemen war with immediate effect and watch its allies tactic or else keep on playing blame game and perish in own lies..

  • Robert Smart

    More likely USA launched a Reaper drone from their base close by in Qatar when they saw drones leave Yemen for Abqaiq & fired some Hellfire missiles at Aramco facility to put it out of action when they arrived. Trump released USA oil reserves to fill the gap, no Iran oil needed! Senior US official doesn’t know East from West “A senior US official, asked not to be named, has claimed that evidence shows the launch area was west-northwest of the targets – the direction of Iran and Iraq – not south from Yemen” WNW is direction of Israel! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e6deecc96f855d674cd69f52a8533ce975eb31d1d42b8c2b6fa68bb7927b0160.jpg
