For the first time during this 16 month long Yemeni War, the Houthi forces launched a ballistic missile into Saudi Arabia, causing severe damage to a crowded military camp.
According to Al-Masdar’s Yemen War correspondent, Tony Toh, the Houthi forces launched a Tochka ballistic missile towards the Ahad Al-Masarihah Military Camp, destroying several armored vehicles and killed a large number of Saudi soldiers.
The Houthi forces do not typically fire missiles into Saudi Arabia; however, due to the recent battles taking place along the vast Yemeni-Saudi border, the anti-government units have committed to an all-out war against the rich Gulf kingdom.
Meanwhile, in Riyadh, the Al-Saud regime now faces their biggest threat along the border, which will ultimately force them to deploy a large number of soldiers in order to forestall the Houthi advance in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan region.
