Yemeni missiles have also been able to target many of Saudi Arabia’s strategic locations at home, most notably the King Salman Air Force base in 2017.
According to military experts, Yemen has a large arsenal of surface-to-surface missiles, various old Soviet missiles, most notably the Scud missiles that Yemen obtained during the Cold War from the Soviet Union, which supported the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen and supplied them with weapons, Tactical rocket.
In 1980, the Yemeni army received missiles from the “Tuchka” type, which, according to recent US reports, still exists in Yemen and became armed groups fighting Saudi Arabia, as well as a group of known Scud missiles and the Soviet Luna M group.
US reports revealed that Yemen would not stop importing missiles after the unification process between the two countries, where it bought a large group of North Korean missiles “Khvasson-6” in 2000.
Since the beginning of the Yemeni war, the Saudi-led “coalition” has tried to destroy Yemen’s missile systems and eliminate ballistic missile platforms, but failed because Ansar Allah made a proactive move to change the location and location of the missiles.
The Russian expert Ivan Konovalov said in an exclusive interview with RT that Yemenis have a long history of using missiles, which gives them strengths in their struggle with Saudi Arabia through their experience and competence in modernizing missiles and upgrading their capabilities.
Konovalov stressed that the Saudi-led “coalition” forces had reached an impasse. “Saudi Arabia is in a dead end for one reason: it will never win over the Houthis,” he said. Houthis are the best warriors in the Middle East. ” Yemenis transferred the war to Saudi territory itself. The talk here is not about rocket strikes alone. “They managed to organize guerrilla operations in the Yemeni provinces of Asir, Jazran and Najran, which Saudi Arabia annexed in 1934. But its population is still Yemenis.”
The strategic analyst, Sergey Seriprov, said that the use of rockets by Yemenis is not futile. It is through these missiles that Yemenis shed light on their cause and the war against them, as well as a critical and enthusiastic factor for the Yemenis themselves to feel proud and just and fair.
He said that Saudi Arabia’s support of an illegitimate authority that does not enjoy absolute legitimacy and its arming of internal Yemeni extremist groups and igniting sectarian and sectarian conflicts will not lead to Saudi Arabia’s achievement, but will also fuel the fire that could reach Saudi Arabia itself.
“The war in Yemen is threatening Saudi Arabia more than ever. After the drop in oil prices and the rising military costs of the Saudi army, Yemen has become a strategic force in the region,” he said. All this will destabilize the entire region and we can expect the continuation of the Arab Spring, but in the Persian Gulf countries this time. ”
