The coalition led by Saudi Arabia announced the interception of the missile launched by the Hussites


As the official representative of the Hussites, Mohammed Abdel Salam, stated, the purpose of the blow was to be the royal palace of Yamama in the capital of Saudi Arabia. According to him, the rebels launched the Burkan-2 rocket.

In November, Saudi Arabian missile defense forces already intercepted a missile fired from Yemen in the direction of Riyadh International Airport. The wreckage of the apparatus then fell in the desert terrain to the north of the Saudi capital, without affecting air traffic. In early December, Yemeni rebels announced the launch of a missile at a nuclear power plant in the UAE.

The United States later accused Iran of supplying missiles to Yemeni Hussite rebels. In turn, UN experts did not confirm the use of Iranian missiles for strikes on Saudi Arabia.

In Yemen, there has been a civil war for several years. One of the warring parties is the militant wing of the Hussites (the Shiite movement Ansar Allah) and part of the army loyal to the former leadership of the country, the other is the troops of the Sunnite President Abd Rabbo Mansur Hadi and the Saudi Arabia led coalition.

      It is necessary for the Persians to test rockets somewhere in order to bring them to mind.

      Patriot definitely. But here is the MIM-104C in the old fashion or Erint is new. It would be interesting to see the effectiveness in a combat situation

    There is also such information: In the capital of Saudi Arabia in the city of Riyadh, an explosion occurred. About this writes Reuters with reference to an eyewitness.

    Puffs of black smoke can be seen at the scene, the cause of the explosion is established.

    The Hussites announced the launch of a ballistic missile at the royal palace in the capital of Saudi Arabia. The coalition claims to have intercepted it. To claim 100% interception is too early .....

    To intercept one missile, the Saudis need only two to three billion bucks. You can’t forbid to live beautifully.

      Each rocket costs a million bucks. In addition, every person has the mind to think about what would happen if the rocket reached the target.

    A blow to a nuclear power plant is no longer a joke. For the Hussites not to fight, but this is already beyond what is permitted. I won’t be surprised if they are crushed for it in all possible ways.

    They regularly destroy them. By absorbing the energy of an explosion of an MSH by surrounding buildings, vehicles and their steep foreheads.
