After a few triumphant weeks for the Houthi forces, their tribal allies, and the Yemeni Republican Guard against the Saudi Coalition on multiple fronts, the Yemeni insurgency inflicted an even larger blow yesterday when a missile struck a Saudi camp.
The missile targeted Jahf Camp south of Ta’iz currently occupied by the Saudi Armed Forces. This camp had been very instrumental as both a launching point for the loyalist forces on Ta’iz front and as an operational base to stop Houthi advances south of Ta’iz onto Lahaj and Aden.
The missile launched was an OTR-21 Tochka strategic missile. The anti-Saudi forces claimed that this attack killed 179 soldiers. While the number may seem too large to be true, previous missile attacks launched on Saudi bases have been devastating to similar proportions.
