Saudi air defense systems intercepted four Hussite drones stuffed with explosives

27

From Saudi Arabia, reports have come that the Hussite units have once again tried to attack Saudi targets using drones. These are kamikaze drones - aircraft with explosive devices. They can be remotely sent to a selected target. Earlier, in a similar way, the Hussites, as the representatives of the Ansar Allah Yemeni group are called, attacked the military parade, as well as the oil facilities of Saudi Arabia.


This time, the Hussites reportedly sent four drones equipped with explosives to the border.

The representative of the Saudi coalition, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, claims that all four UAVs were intercepted even over the territory of Yemen.

From a statement by Colonel Al-Maliki:

Drones were destroyed before crossing the Saudi border. Our coalition has a powerful and effective air defense network that can withstand such threats and prevent attacks immediately after launching drones from the Hussite-controlled areas.

According to some reports, the self-propelled short-range SAM M1097 Avenger with FIM-92 Stinger and machine guns of 12,7 mm caliber were used. These are American-made complexes that are in service with the Saudi forces.

According to Turki al-Maliki, "the coalition is taking all measures to protect civilian objects in accordance with international law."

At the same time, the Saudi coalition is still experiencing problems in Yemen. The Hussites taking control of the central part of Yemen continues to give them the opportunity to strike in different directions, entering the rear of the Yemeni army and its Saudi allies. Hussites call Saudi troops occupation.

      Knead off the support of the Hussites from sponsors and they will leave horns and legs.
      A couple of relatively recent examples:
      1. Not the Vietnamese of the USA won, but the endless human potential of China + support for the USSR with weapons.
      2. Not the Afghans defeated the USSR, but the supply of finance + militants + armaments from the United States.
      So let's go without fables about tramps with Kalash. Behind them are serious people with experience in tactical attack planning. It is at least. And finance there naturally is sickly.
      It’s not for nothing that forever barefoot vidos write - you must also report to the owners where the finances allocated go.
      Something like this.

        But are there any people who are so gullible and confident that Afghanistan won that war? But did I really miss somewhere and didn’t notice that the USSR’s plans were to grow in Afghan territories, but it didn’t grow together?
        I will tell you in secret that no one has ever set such goals. The goals set for the military contingent, the 40th Army, almost all were fulfilled.
        One thing is true, they played too much and brought people out belatedly. It should have been done before.

          I agree with you 100%.
          But even for this delay with the withdrawal of troops, everything looks like a defeat.
          He once lived in a military town near Nikolaev, there was a part of the airborne forces.
          During the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, we entered the unit late at night so that the locals would not see it.
          So you can’t call it a victory either ...

            Without determined "tramps" no plans of "serious people" are realized.
            Support is important. But people are important.

          Chapter 5
          1. Here is the genealogy of Adam, man; on the day of God's creation of man in the likeness of God created him; 2. He created them by man and woman. And He blessed them, and named them Adam, man, on the day of their creation. 3. And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and he begat in his likeness in his own image, and he called his name Shet. 4. And there were days of Adam after the birth of Shet eight hundred years, and he begat sons and daughters. 5. And there were all the days of Adam that lived, nine hundred years and thirty years; and he died.

    Let the Saudis fight for themselves .. But the news today passed that we sold the "Bastion" to Khavtar ... The glorious Khavtarians have already distinguished themselves in the operation of the "Armor" .. If the "Bastion" is also abandoned with ammunition, the Turks will be very happy .. yes and not only them ...

      Complete nonsense. Hammer on such "news". They will write that we are supplying Iskander to Khavtar. Enough rumors about MIGs. And about "Armor" you are right - they put the ignoramus at the buttons, and they only know about the AK-47, and handicraft.

    I wrote when they delivered to Syria with 300 that there would be anti-advertising installations. The installations themselves are not super duper, but not bad, but there was a good advertisement. But sooner or later they will be destroyed, even if there will be super staff. Now, I wrote back then, we’ll say hands are crooked, do not include, and this is a top-level arrangement to miss missiles and planes, so what to do?

    All in one pile .. Adam, Eve, God, bastion, Havtar, Iskander ... Everything except this air defense and downed UAV.
    I propose to create a section called a gazebo, where there will be no offtopic, where anyone can open any topic, even about Adam and Eve, even about God, about music, medicine, etc. with comments. As add. section of the site, simply "Gazebo". (Or - About everything except the military.)

    Recently, there was an article at VO that the KSA threatened Angola and Nigeria with an oil war. What if these noble republics decided not to pull the cat for this, and deliver a counter-polymer hit by the Hussites? Conclusion: there is nothing to once again open your mouth when with air defense not everything is safe in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
