Saudi army announced the interception of 4 ballistic missile Hussites

Yemeni rebels, known as the Hussites, launched another missile strike on the territory of Saudi Arabia. According to recent reports, in addition to missiles, the Hussites also used drones equipped with explosive devices.


At the same time, the new attack was one of the most massive in recent times. So, the missiles were sent immediately to several Saudi cities: Jizan, Najran and the capital of the kingdom - Riyadh.

According to the Saudi military command, four ballistic missiles and 8 kamikaze drones were intercepted by the country's air defense systems. About how many missiles and drones were fired in Saudi Arabia from the territory of neighboring Yemen, is not reported. There is no data on what air defense systems the Saudi army used to intercept missiles and drones.

On the eve, as reported by Military Review, the Hussites actually opened a second front - in the central part of Yemen. This allowed them to seize a strategic advantage. Now the Ansar Allah units can afford to attack the enemy in almost any direction. This was already demonstrated the day before, when the Hussites managed to take control of several settlements at once. Moreover, the Yemeni army surrendered them virtually without a fight.

Information comes from the United States that Washington is trying to put pressure on the Saudi authorities to refuse to continue fighting in Yemen.

      Are there many options? "Patriots", apparently.

    Why 4 ballistic missiles, not 40 or 400? Why should we believe in the success of Saudi air defense

    The rocket redirected to a working air conditioner, clearly laughing I explain. Any piece of iron, falling from top to bottom, can kill any fool (and smart too) who comes out to admire such a beautiful sight as a firework for several million dollars.


    PS No one is surprised by icicles that kill citizens ...

    And the Hussites just shot. Usually when the Hussites say they shot big women in Saudi Arabia.

      You just confuse the cause with the investigation, the Hussites say that they shot if it flew successfully.

        But what about the advertisement of Petriot. Where is the photo of the debris of the Hussite rockets or as usual: Aziz is the battery! And the Bedouins dragged the debris into the colorimeter while Aziz was looking for the battery.

    The same can be said of the Hussites. The article has a near-zero informational content. Damn them, with proofs, at least there were dates when all this happened, and so the numbers are near-phonary. When, by what - no information

    And no one suggests taking a word. But there is a resource on the net called "Missile War in Yemen" that tracks strikes and interceptions. You can at least use it.

    Likewise, "gentlemen" are more dear to believe in themselves.
