In Saudi Arabia, announced a massive drone attack carried out by the Houthis


The command of the Saudi Arabian forces reports that the calculations of air defense systems have been put on high alert. This is associated with the next activity of the Houthis.

Reports say the Houthis have attempted a massive attack on Saudi Arabia using unmanned aerial vehicles. According to recent reports, Saudi air defenses intercepted four Houthi drones loaded with explosive devices. How many drones they could not intercept is not reported at the moment.

Saudi Army Captain Mohammed Al Sayed:

Shrapnel that fell in the south of the country injured a civilian and damaged five houses and three cars.

At the same time, Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of supplying drones to the Houthis. It was noted that "Iran is strengthening support for the Houthis, aimed at continuing the destabilization in Yemen, near the borders of the Saudi kingdom."

In turn, Iran replies that none other than Saudi Arabia will destabilize the situation in Yemen anymore, since it is the Saudi troops that have been invading this country and have been fighting for several years.

Riyadh said the new drone attack "targeted the oil industry and infrastructure."

What air defense systems were used to intercept the UAV is not reported.

    I hope that our reconnaissance satellite was accidentally present in the sky at this time. So, out of curiosity.

    Did you use the Patriots? Strange message. If they wanted to cause serious damage, they would have launched several dozen. Yes, so that they attacked from different sides at the same time ... And so, just destroy the devices, and train the enemy's air defense ...

      Iran is testing new models. Even if a part is torn, it's already good ... The Saudis have now strengthened their air defense, all extreme attempts have not been crowned with success. And the operators are not local with them.

      Well, according to the KSA, it was an attempt at a mass attack - it could really be probing the air defense and command post.

    the Houthis attempted a massive attack on the territory of Saudi Arabia using unmanned aerial vehicles

    Well, now everyone will use such toys. Maybe we'll hear about the attack on the USA bases. Like "the cycle of democracy in nature"

    What else did the Saudis expect? Remove your troops and mercenaries from Yemen and the Houthis will stop nightmare your wells with drones.

    Two of a Kind. Without Iran's support, they would have been multiplied by zero long ago. And so, despite the interception of supplies, something still passes ...

    It was clearly not without Iran's help - Riyadh will more than once comment on the next attacks by the Houthis UAVs.
