Hushits have declared rocket fire on Riyadh and other cities of Saudi Arabia

24

Representatives of the Ansar Allah Yemeni movement, also called the Hussites, announced their involvement in the firing of rockets in Riyadh and the port city of Jizan in southwestern Saudi Arabia, near the border with Yemen. At least two missiles that were intercepted on Saturday by Saudi air defense over Riyadh, as well as one that was shot down over Jizan, are known. There is no information on the number of victims and destruction.


This was reported with reference to the command of the armed forces of the Hussites Al-Masira TV channel.

Ansar Allah military spokesman on Sunday announced a series of rocket and droning strikes against the kingdom's capital and two border cities, Asir, Najran and Jizan. The attack was carried out by “sensitive” economic and military facilities in Saudi Arabia.

Shortly before this, coalition forces led by KSA launched several airstrikes on Yemen. Hussite objects were attacked in Sana'a and the provinces of Saad and Juf, located near the borders of the kingdom.

These events took place after representatives of the opposing forces in Yemen and the Arab coalition led by the KSA on Friday supported the call of UN Secretary General Antoni Guterres to stop any military action while the coronavirus is rampant in the world.

      In conditions of impotence of their own power in the development of the country's economy and industry, all hope for salvation from a complete financial and economic catastrophe lies with the barefoot Yemeni Houthis. It is called Vstaliscal. Only one desert country of camels reels a great power with "the most brilliant leader in the world."

      I don’t know what happened there in the morning, but now it has collapsed by 8,5%, to $ 22 per barrel, compared to yesterday. Even the Hussite attacks did not help. The ruble falls in the wake of oil.

        Yandex. At 13.20 Moscow time Brent + 6,78% = $ 26.61. Someone is clearly lying.
        Where do you look at the bulletins?

      Thanks to the Hussites! They know how to work correctly on stock exchanges ..))))
      The Saudis have come in dark times, there they probably already have a panic ... The US defense does not work, why did they unfasten that kind of money?
      Ah yes Husits ​​.ai yes well done .. hi

      More likely on terminals in ports. And on the towers - rockets are not enough.

        So they, as it were, and why not hunt for towers. The last time they successfully screwed up at the refinery, after which the Saudi oil production fell by 50%.

          There were some doubts about the authorship of that attack on the refinery and who caused the most damage - Hussite missiles or saboteurs with false magnetic mines ... And even the accessories of those saboteurs ... Evil tongues are spoken on MI-6 and the CIA ... But it turned out really spectacularly.
          The Saudis, of course, are bastards, but I have no confidence so far that a sharp increase in oil prices now is beneficial to us in the medium term. Is it worth saving the American slate? It takes several months for the industry to completely stand up - for the shale companies to go bankrupt (and they are usually small and loaned), stop production, fire the workers, they leave and find another job ... it is advisable to maintain this situation for up to six months. Now, against the backdrop of the pandemic, the economic downturn and demand have already fallen seriously, + SA and Co. Fortels.
          And there are plenty of people who want to destroy the SA as a leading player in the oil market even without us - all exporters suffer.

            I agree that our interest in this matter is not great. It is rather in the interests of the same Americans.

            The Hussites took responsibility. There were photos of the damaged tank, where the hole from falling from above. So I admit to myself that this is the work of the Hussites. Especially after that, they agreed with the Saudis that the Hussites did not touch the infrastructure, and the Saudis did not involve aviation. It seems that this agreement has been violated, moreover by the Saudis.
            Shortly before this, coalition forces led by KSA launched several airstrikes on Yemen. Hussite objects were attacked in Sana'a and the provinces of Saad and Juf, located near the borders of the kingdom.

              In any case, we will not get any worse from the amateur performance of the Houthis, but the fact that the Patriots are smearing again (although they achieved several hits) gives us a chance to order our S-400 from the SA lol It sounds a bit unexpected against the background of our "oil war" with them, but who knows if this "war" has not been agreed ... after all, as a result, it is American companies that are flying out of the market. repeat .
              In any case, I wish the Hussites new successful launches, and the Saudis - to make the right choice in the means of air defense / missile defense.
              And long live Russian heavy oil! Which is not among the Saudis.

    Hussites need to increase the onslaught while US troops in the region are locked in their bases because of the coronavirus.

      Amplify. The offensive is developing in the province of Al Jawf. Saudis and Hadists flee, losing slippers. The video of the one-legged Hussite fighter was especially delivered. You can fight against the Saud and with one leg smile https://colonelcassad.livejournal.com/5749067.html

    We are waiting for them to get to the palaces. And the effectiveness of the Patriot, judging by the data, is less than 50% - two out of five.

      The effectiveness of the Patriots is much less. The link below the video misses missiles SAM Patriot.
      The capital of Saudi Arabia, the city of Riyadh, was subjected to rocket fire from the Yemenite Hussites. At the same time, the Hussites rocketed the port city of Jazan, located in the south of the kingdom near the Yemeni border. This is reported by Arabic-language media.

      A video has already appeared on the Web that shows how Patriot missiles missed in the course of repelling one of these attacks. Missiles simply flew past the target.


      rockets were fired by the Hussites from Yemen. Moreover, in Riyadh and Jazan, explosions were first heard, and only then an air alert began.

    announced a series of strikes using missiles and drones in the capital of the kingdom
    This is only in appearance in slippers and with AK-47, but they manage to periodically beat the Saudis and their allies using rockets and UAVs. He who is strong in spirit is on horseback.

    Hussites need to deliver the Tochka-U detachment removed from our armament, just the old equipment was attached
    and the price tag for oil would raise

    Elementary. Helped Iran something - automatically helped the Howsites. But directly - no, we have nothing to do with them, and in general, contacts.

    It would be necessary for the Hussites to plant weapons, if not directly, then through intermediary friends.

    Do we need it? Well, let's help the Houthis. And the Saudis and Shtatovtsy will bring down oil prices, as before the collapse of the Union. And which is better? Have ships as buyers of our weapons or find yourself in the same situation as before the collapse of the Union. Or "I'll frostbite my ears to spite my grandmother"?

    And they are intermediaries for friends ?? The Houthis have Persians as friends, who are unlikely to be satisfied with Russia's desire to squeeze them out of the arms market. And "transports with weapons" do not always reach Yemen. Intercept them. But we just didn't have enough to intercept the transport with our weapons. A stench would be ... We only lack a "stench" to complete happiness ...

    Statistics indicate a slightly different situation. Anything can happen, it happened that out of 4 launched missiles, all 4 were not shot down, but the general statistics are different. In December, there was an article on the net "The Yemen Missile War". So the situation is approximately as follows
    In 2015, 20 were launched, of which 12 (60%) were shot down
    In 2016, 43 were launched, of which 26 were shot down (60,47%)
    In 2017, 40 were launched, of which 28 (70%) were shot down
    In 2018, 96 were launched, of which 80 (83%) were shot down
    In 2019, 34 were launched and 21 were shot down (61,76%)

    In total, 233 missiles were launched, of which 176 or 71,67% were shot down). Of course, the situation was different in different months, but KSA copes with the ballistic threat of air defense.
