Largest one-time losses in recent times: new data on the Houthis attack on a military base


The details of yesterday’s attack carried out by the Ansar Allah armed groups (often called Hussites) come from Yemen. Recall that we are talking about a missile attack, the main purpose of which was the military personnel of the occupation forces - first of all, Saudi Arabia.


The reports say that the attack was the largest since last year’s defeat of the Saudi National Guard convoy. Then trophies in the form of only one small weapons the Hussites captured more than a thousand units.

If you believe the latest reports that come from Yemen, then as a result of the Hussite attack, more than 110 people died, more than 70 were injured, including severe ones.

The territory of the camp in Mariba was attacked, in which Saudi military instructors train draftees to participate in the anti-Husite coalition. According to Middle Eastern media, the majority of those killed were Saudi servicemen and Yemeni recruits who agreed to work with Riyadh. According to some reports, the number of recruits recruited for training by the Saudis was about 1,5 thousand people. And this is the largest one-time loss of the Saudi and Yemeni army in recent times.

It is known that in addition to missiles, representatives of the Ansar Allah group also used drones equipped with explosive devices. The reports said that the attacks were carried out using anti-tank systems, which led to the destruction of several units delivered from Saudi Arabia.

Yemeni President called this attack a "cowardly attack." In Saudi Arabia, they said that Iran was behind the strike.

    Hard! So I did not understand what rockets attacked the camp? If tactical - how did they coordinate the simultaneous attack by drones and anti-tank systems?

      Burkan and UAV - Kamikaze.
      The losses officially confirmed by the Saudis are 117 people, more than 200 wounded (50% are severe). According to unconfirmed reports, up to 30 people, specifically the Saudis, died. Also, the commander of the 4th brigade of “Hadists" Al-Samaki was killed.

      Well, firstly, the Arabs have no coffins.
      Secondly, in the Army of the Indigenous People’s Army, the cat wept. Mostly mercenaries and those who received citizenship. Prove their loyalty to the king. Therefore, for CA there are only financial losses.

            In the 404th, the warriors are not much different from the Saudis. What distinguished themselves was only boilers and shelling of cities. In addition, you can’t drink vodka from the Arabs, so they won’t go from the non-vodka one. winked

    The “Arabian Kings” didn’t have an easy walk .... maybe they bought the wrong grenades? Or in another way it is necessary to consider the problem ... it's about the fact that it was not a bobbin !!!

      They are stupidly trying to resolve the issue by military means. But in Yemen, this does not work. The more such attacks will be against the forces of the anti-Husite coalition, the more real it is that it will sober up and try to sit at the negotiating table. what

        It can be assumed that there are fundamental contradictions in who will control that piece of land.
        Although, external factors may be present .. if you delve deeper and deeper.

      Easy walk at the "Arab Kings" did not work ....

      Forgot the postulates of wise people .- “It’s easier to conquer than to control. With the help of the appropriate lever you can shake the world with one finger, but Hercules’s shoulders are needed to support it. Jean-Jacques Rousseau. But most of all this is done by their senior masters in the USA. Here they are and decided that they can.

        For specific guys, now, it’s easier to destroy than try to conquer. Such times, such weapons are available in arsenals, some have.

    For the Natoshmans, Russia stands behind everything, for the Saudis Iran. More saudas, good and different in boxes! laughing
    Although the question of an attack using anti-tank systems is interesting. They came close.

        Pavel, categorically hi
        It just looks very much like a kindergarten. Hit the ball, stumbled and fell - that’s the fault of the ball. That is, he (the Saud in this case) cheated, but blames anyone, not himself.

    Most likely BURKAN missiles. This is a Yemeni version of the Iranian SHAHAB-2 rocket. Warhead weight about 700 kg

    Yemeni resident calls this "cowardly attack"

    The diehard Saudis bravely perish in the hundreds as a result of the cowardly blows of the Howsites.
    This only adds courage to them - they can easily cut into parts any journalist who fell into their hands, who will argue the opposite.

    It reminds me of some kind of circus .. An army in which it’s possible to roll up an entire country a couple of times in a circle .. cannot solve something there .. Actually, since it’s not very interesting, it didn’t even get into the essence of the conflict. Although, even so, it is obvious how Iran’s ears stick out.
