BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 A.M.) – At some point during the night of Wednesday to Thursday, Houthi rebels fired a short range ballistic missile into Saudi Arabia, targeting a large airport in the country’s south.

Specifically, Houthi forces fired the missile – identified as a Badr-1 type design – at the Jizan Regional Airport.

Houthi military sources claim that the missile scored a direct hit against the airport; Saudi officials are yet to comment.

Since the beginning of 2018, Houthi forces have drastically increased their number of ballistic missile attacks against Saudi Arabia, sometimes launching multiple projectiles at targets within the Arab kingdom during a single day.

Ahhh…imagine the plight of Saudis now no place to run and no place to hide ha ha.

How many more Amrikan Anti Missile Patriot Systems they will have to purchase next to deploy them all around Saudi? Yemen forces are slowly bleeding Saudis. MBS’s dream plan for Saudi for the next 30 years will remain a distant dream.
