Saudi command accused the Houthis of launching a missile strike on an area of ​​the city near the borders of the kingdom

Representatives of the Houthi group in Yemen



A ballistic missile fell on the territory of Yemen. The Saudi command accused the Houthis of launching a missile strike.

This was stated by the Saudi Press Agency, referring to the representative of the command of the Arab coalition, Colonel Turki al-Maliki.

He claims that the Houthis launched a ballistic missile from Amran province. It exploded in an area of ​​a city located on the border with Saudi Arabia, in the Yemeni province of El Jawf. Al-Maliki said that Ansar Allah rebels are targeting settlements and civilians indiscriminately, threatening the lives of hundreds of civilians.

The colonel said that the Arab coalition will make every effort to contain the "aggression of the Houthis and eliminate their military potential." According to him, this is necessary to protect the Yemeni population, as well as to ensure regional and international security. Al-Maliki noted that Ansar Allah's actions violate international and humanitarian law.

Earlier this Friday, the Arab coalition stated that a commercial cargo ship had stumbled upon a sea mine left by Yemeni rebels in the southern Red Sea.

In turn, the Houthis said they would continue to fight as long as the Saudi troops are in Yemeni territory.

    Your Mother ... and what did they want with their invasion? That the Houthis will humbly die on their territory?
    Entrance - Ruble, exit - Two! Good luck to the Houthis ... hammer the Kingdom - as and wherever you can!
    The Saudis took the burden uncomfortably, the oil-bearing regions of Saudia are inhabited by Shiites ... well, break yourself up quickly, you look and Oil will go uphill, We are a plus!

      And how does the actual status of the Arab coalition in Emen differ from the Russian one in Syria? They are there at the invitation of the "legal government"

        Do you know who Yemen's "legal government" is? In my opinion, Saudi Arabia tried to climb into another country .................

    The coalition, armed with modern American weapons, is holding back the "aggression" of soldiers in shale and AK in hands. It’s not funny for the Saudis to write that. And I like these barefoot guys who know how to fight well and stand up for themselves.

      Along the way, the Saudis are really no laughing matter there. The Qataris are gone, the Sudan is collapsing, the Hadis in batches are going over to the side of the Houthis - the coalition is bursting at the seams, and the Houthis meanwhile hammer them into the tail and mane.

    Why did the exceptional air defense not shoot down the non-invasive missile?

    Where is the vaunted Saudi missile defense system? The naive Saudis wanted to fight like the Americans - to shoot at targets in a shooting range in someone else's territory, and then also to claim an indemnity for expenses. True, they made a mistake with the country. Now let them relax and have fun. I wonder if, by chance, the Houthis find a nuclear weapon (even a "dirty bomb"), will they try it on the Saudis?

    The main thing is not to confuse anything. In this case, the president of the country fled from the rebels, not from the people.

      This is an extremely strange and controversial case when the Arab spring worked its way.

    Well, finally, the Bedouins will change from gold toilets to f15.  laughing the ground phase will be more entertaining ... Iran will harness its co-religionists and there will be a full-scale Shiite war in the style of the First World War.

    ps for their affairs let them be rewarded

    All the same, the Patriot is strong and the C300 is not. I write this of course myself without bots and for free. (no).
    fellow although from time to time we float out in millions of us kakbenet =) you believe the main thing and you will have cookies and covid and ukrosibiryaki and markets with slaves like in Libya. and most importantly, keep quiet. no ministry of health no performance characteristics from the ministry of defense. current we have the whole truth)))

    Threat the last many years in Yemen at the hands of the Saudis, children are dying a LOT and often in the country there is a famine of cholera epidemics and other things. USA what are the sanctions? complete democracy! and of course watch Hollywood and give pennies more often))) we are good!

    When the Kurds took Raqqa, who thought about civilians a lot?

    Al-Maliki noted that by its actions "Ansar Allah" violates international and humanitarian law

    These were "humanitarian bombings" - a term coined in the West. What are you dissatisfied with?

    The Houthis are great! don't give up and snap back painfully ...
    The Saudi (and his comrades) aggression against Yemen clearly did not go according to plans and turned into an expensive, shameful and completely unpromising war for the Saudis, in which they can neither win, nor get out of it, without being completely disgraced ...

    The Houthis are great!

    Actually, they shoot down and quite successfully. Approximately 2/3 of the missiles launched were shot down.
