Saudi-Backed Forces Shot Down Two Houthi Drones In Ma’rib Within 48 Hours (Photos)

Saudi-backed forces have shot down two drones launched by the Ansar Allah movement, also known as the Houthis, in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib.

On September 22, Saudi-backed tribal fighters shot down the first drone in the southern part of the district of Sirwah. The drone was a Qasef-2k, a copy of the Iranian Ababil-2. The kamikaze drone is armed with a heavy high-explosive fragmentation, HE-FRAG, warhead that explodes 20m over the target.

On September 23, the Yemeni National Army, the main local ally of the Saudi-led coalition, shot down a second drone of the Houthis in the area of al-Alam.

The drone’s type was not identified. Photos of the wreckage revealed that the drone has a “delta wing” design. Similar drones were used in the 2019 Abqaiq–Khurais attack that targeted oil processing facilities in eastern Saudi Arabia.

The two drones were likely on their way to hit military targets in Ma’rib. The Houthis attack Saudi-backed forces in the province on a regular basis.

In the last three years, the Houthis developed their offensive capabilities and launched several successful drone and missile attacks. High-value targets in Yemen and deep inside Saudi Arabia were struck by the Yemeni group.
