DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:30 P.M.) – Late last night, Houthi-led forces launched a longe-range ballistic missile towards the western coast of Saudi Arabia.

Striking a couple of Saudi Arabia’s oil refineries in Yanbu province, the longe range-missile traveled some 1,100 kilometers undeterred by anti-aircraft defenses before hitting the oil-rich area, starting a large fire.

The type ‘Burkan-2’ missile caused Saudi firefighters to work through the night, but significant damage was already done by the initial impact, a source told Al-Masdar News.

The ordeal is retaliation by the Houthis whom have been targeted by Saudi warplanes since 2015 following a coalition intervention by Gulf countries opposed to their rule.

The Houthis have launched longe-range missile into Saudi Arabia on numerous occasions, usually striking military targets or industrial sectors to harm is economy.

The Saudi’s need to feel real monetary pain, preferably with the oil refineries so badly damaged that the Kingdom will not benefit from any oil price rises.

Actually, it’s them who maintain oil prices super low in order to hurt Russian economy!
Thus, their cash reserves are plummeting.
Now, if some countries that are hurt by the Saudi practises as it fucks all the OPEC, switching from payments in $ to the €uro, even if the Saudis are the #1 producer, it will f*****g hurt the dollar and f*****g hurt the $audis!!!

Excelente noticia, se requiere mas misiles para seguir bombardeando las zonas petroleras de la Monarquía hasta que su economía se vaya al abismo y el mismo pueblo se levante contra la tiranía de la Monarquía Saudí.
