BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:24 P.M.) – The Yemeni Ministry of Defense released on Tuesday a statement claimsing to have new missiles in their service.

Qaher M-2 is a new surface-to-surface mid-range missile system and was modernized from the Russian-made air defense rocket of SAM 2.

With a 400 km range, the Qaher is able to hit any vital target inside the nearby Saudi territories within that range.

Each Qaher M3 when fired toward a base with Patriots requires an ABM response. A Yemen made Qaher M3 can consume one or two Patriots at a million a piece. So the Yemen missile inflicts financial damage even before reaching target.

If so that would be good news. But from Israel I know that they only fire ABM if the calculated impact point is not a desert or sth. uncritical.
