SANA’A, YEMEN (9:31 A.M.) – Houthi fighters have fired a medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM), designated Qaher-M2, into southern Saudi Arabia. The missile targeted a gathering of Saudi troops and Saudi-allied mercenaries in the center of the town of Al-Mousem in Jizan province.

At this time, the losses incurred by the Saudi-led ground forces are unknown.

The use of this missile, and others of its type (i.e. the Tochka), demonstrates the strategic reach that Houthi forces (and the allied Yemeni Republic Guard) have at their disposal in order to retaliate against the constant bombardment coming in from Saudi-led coalition airpower, by themselves being able to strike into Saudi Arabia with stand-off weapon systems.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
