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.

Patriots only downed to old Yemeni Scuds. Now yemenis have turned using much smaller old 60’s SAMs customised as ballistic missiles. They may be much harder to down… Anyway, a Patriot cost is about 3M$. Using old 60’s SAMs that now are near useless is near to be free… Let’s help KSA getting ruined! Another point I’d highly consider : loading the SAMs with white phosphorus warheads and an altimeter then my two main targets would be the 15 KSA airbases AND the desalination plants : KSA already began the water-war by bombing a water bottling factory around Sana’a… Water… Read more »

I’m personally not against the “Greater Yemen” idea if this is what they’re trying to do alongside liberating all of Yemen.

It seems incomprehensible that the Houthis can truck those missiles around with out the Americanisms spotting them and the Saudis attacking them.

The topography of Yemen is very rugged, with mountains, valleys, vegetation, etc. It is not open desert. Even if there is some open desert, even that has occasional sandstorms which can cover movements of this nature, especially at night.
