Saudi Arabia Acknowledges Recent Houthi Missile Strike, Claims It Caused No Damage

Saudi Arabia has acknowledged that a projectile launched by the Houthis, in the late hours of June 19, landed near a strategic facility in the southern part of the Kingdom.

In an official statement released in the morning of June 20, the Saudi-led coalition said that the projectile landed near the al-Shuqaiq Water Desalination Plant in the southern Saudi province of Jizan. The impact didn’t result in any losses in equipment or lives, according to the coalition.

“Military and security bodies are working to determine the type of the projectile that was used, in the meantime, the Iran-backed Houthi terrorist militia, through its media, claimed full responsibility for this terrorist act using a cruise missile –as they claim-,” a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, Col. Turki al-Malki, said in the statement.

The Houthis claimed that they had targeted another facility, a power plant, which is located in the same exact area as the water desalination plan.

This was the second time when the Saudi-led coalition failed to intercept the Houthis’ so-called “cruise missiles.” Last week, a projectile of the same type hit the Abha International Airport in the Kingdom’s southern region rendering it out of service.

The success of the new attack is yet another example of the ever growing offensive capabilities of the Houthis. The Yemeni group had warned Saudi Arabia and its allies that it will intensify its strikes, and even threatened to hit al-Shuqaiq plant.

    I would imagine that Israeli Iron Dome salesmen will be scurrying to Saudi Arabia immediately to offer the Israeli missile defence system.

    For a few shekels more than the usual price naturally :)

      Yes we will see how stupid they really are.

      If there smart they would buy pantsir

      • FlorianGeyer

        I hope they don’t buy Pantsir , Mike. :)

          No worries, ive yet to meet a mecanic that can fix stupid. And I know some excellent mecanics!!
          LOL

        Saudi Arabia only exists because the US wills it.
        They have to make do with Patriots, no other options would be allowed.

    A few minutes of high-altitude accurate filming of this vital target in
    the Jizan area, rise several questions about the target, its
    nature(location),its production capabilities and its economic
    importance.

    The water and electricity company SQWEC is located in the coastal area of
    Sqwec which’s 150km north of Jizan and 105km away from Abha in Asir
    which makes the emirates(provinces) of Jizan and Asir benefit from this
    station productivity, and it’s more than 130km away from the nearest
    border point in yemen.

    The project is divided into units

    which the station produces 212k cubicmeter of water on daily basis and additional 850 Megawatt per hour.

    The definition of the project

    *Ownership and the durtion of contract: It works with build,ownership,operate system BOO for 20 years

    *Production: 212k cubicmeter of water daily and 850mw of electracity per hour

    Unit of electracity production

    *Turbine units the power of each one of them is 310mw for electracity production

    The Drone has taken scenes which hold messges the least of it is a response
    which has been put in an earlier time, away from the high resolution

    Do the days carried scenes for post-monitoring?

    nothing is excluded

    but there is an equation of the deep faith of men in the field which’s linked to allah’s book which says

    فَإِنَّهُمْ يَأْلَمُونَ كَمَا تَأْلَمُونَ

    (They will suffer as they do)
