The Houthi forces launched three Tochka missiles at a Saudi military post in the Jizan Region of Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, causing severe damage to the installation.

According to Yemen-based Al-Masirah, the three Houthi missiles struck the Al-Jallah Center in the Jizan Region; this area is filled with Saudi soldiers and military equipment.

The total number of casualties was not reported by the Saudi military or media; however, it is assumed to be a high number because of the large presence of KSA soldiers in the area.

This missile strike by the Houthi Forces was in retaliation to the Saudi Coalition’s airstrikes over the densely populated Saada and Sanaa Governorates on Tuesday morning.

The Houthi seem to have large supply of ATGM as well as ballistic missiles. The swarm of missiles at one time seems a way to overwhelm anti ballistic missile systems. Are missile decoys are used in attacks to confuse radar?. The cost accuracy and more details about Houthi missiles would be appreciated.

not sure whether SA has any abm there. tocka flies 2km/second and patriot systems have had a problem with old Scuds with much bigger foot print and lower speed. SA pussies are either not able to operate abm, or, what is a bigger problem, they hired some mercenaries to do a country defence, mercenary does think only about the money and how to get away with that moeny, mercenary is not ready to die for Saudi Arabia king.

3 Tockas (tocka=bullet point) means one ton of explosives.
I do not get it. Tocka is not grad, tocka has a guidance system and 480 kg of explosives, CEP of `50 to 70 meters.
I do not get the tactical background to fire 3 rockets at the same coordinates simultabeously.

With 3 tockas they mop-up one square kilometer.
