Sana’a, Yemen (5:04 A.M.) – A SCUD missile fired by the Yemeni Republican Guard reportedly struck the Saudi city of Ta’if that is located approximately 700 km deep into the oil-dependent nation.

This military development is of massive significance because it implies that the Saudi capital of Riyadh is within the range of the Yemeni ballistic missiles, and may therefore change the trajectory of the Yemeni conflict further to the side of the Sana’a-based elected government of Yemen.

Al-Masira News Channel and official military sources have yet to confirm news of this rocket attack.

Riadh is 800.
Riadh should be the primary target.
Maybe this was a warning to Saudis, what is going to come in the next days.

They should aim to hit Riyadh, it might bring Al Saud to their senses and probably stop bombing Yemen.

Both of them.. But i still support a 100% ban on water and food for all Saudi Arabia…Block the borders and don’t let them escape. That’s what i’d do.. I’m wondering how many can’t eat and drink oil.. After that you still have the infrastructure but not a single ISIS member.

Al-Masjid al-Haram could even become the biggest night-club on Earth…
Just get rid of all these shitty clerics and the royal family, hey, 78% of saudis would like to live in Israel if they could chose any country in the mid-east! They f*****g want freedom!

they say the same, like me, Yemen will go after the Riadh. They have to test the poor Patriots in Riadh, but Patriots did not work against Sadam’s Scuds, so they will not work against Yemeni Scuds as well.

Patriot 1 was able to hit 2 on 3 Scuds… Now there is Patriot 3 and Patriot 4 should be fielded very soon if not already done

They’d be in fact very easy to put on their knees : you need only about 100 cruise missiles with thermobaric warheads and well, let’s take care of all the desalination plants, I’d like to try an interesting tactics using torpedoes inside pipelines to destroy the pumping stations

BTW, most drinkable water in Riyadh comes by pipeline too from Gulf huge desalination plant. Using torpedos with i.e. a double guiding corolla and ball-bearings into a pipeline has never been done. It may be really nasty …

You’re not ecologist at all! And pollution? And global warming? Like the other idiot that wants to nuke everything and never heard of fallouts! There is much better ways if you want to destroy an economy based on oil but in fact, it would be smth to use to blackmail them : it’s not interesting if there’s no money to make… Never heard about the bacterias they use to eat oil-spills : on each reproduction cycle, their number will at least double as long there’s oil to eat (not sure about their meiosis, I feel I remember some bacterias dividing… Read more »

A Scud missile – A-Z missed also the target by about 60 miles? 😉 The Saudis must be impressed…

Scud precision is about 60 meters, not 60 miles… It’s more than enough to be effective with a nuke or a chemical warhead for which they were initially intended for
