BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Houthi forces have carried out a new missile strike against the Saudi Army this week, targeting their positions in the southern province of Asir on Saturday.

According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, their rocket battalion fired a Zilzal-2 ballistic missile and Katyusha rockets towards a gathering of Saudi Army soldiers near the Alb Crossing in the Asir Province.

The Houthi forces did not state whether the missile or rockets hit their intended target.

The Houthi attack this morning marks the third time this week that they have targeted southern Saudi Arabia and the kingdom’s military.

These missile strikes by the Houthi forces are conducted in response to the ongoing bombing campaign by the Saudi-led Coalition, the Yemeni movement claims.

Iran needs to start giving them better missiles that can actually hit their intended targets. A couple of mobile radar and AA systems would be nice too, though I don’t know how long they’d last.

Mejor apuntar a zonas petroleras de la Monarquía para dañar su economía y mas adelante el mismo pueblo Saudi se levantaría contra la Monarquía.
