BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:35 P.M.) – Local media said that at least six people were killed and other 30 were injured in Sanaa on Monday, as an airstrike, reportedly carried by the Saudi-led coalition, hit the capital’s presidential palace.

Footage shot from outside the vicinity of palace captured smoke billowing in the air, with wreckage and debris covering the surrounding streets.

“[The airstrikes happened] in the office of the presidency […] Two rockets hit us. Some people were injured, some were killed. Two buildings completely collapsed,” one eyewitness said.

The Saudi-led bombing campaign continues in Yemen with US backing, with casualty figures exceeding 16,200 people since the beginning of the conflict in March 2015.

A reported 40,000 have been injured and more than two million people have been displaced.

The war devastating Yemen is now in its fourth year, with human rights organisations repeatedly accusing the Saudi-led coalition of targeting civilian areas.

Such systems are not for free, even S-300, which is mid-80’s technology (with upgraded seekers now) won’t cost you less than $200M and if a battallion can take care of 2 squadrons, you haven’t optional radars and passive detection systems, then you haven’t complementary defences systems like Morphey and Pantsir to defeat cruise or anti-radiation missiles able to attack main batteries. Just think that a single short range Pantsir vehicle already costs $16 millions… You’d need a full IADS system, and a pretty big modern one : F-15SA and Typhoon are pretty serious clients, in case you wouldn’t know.
