Saudi-led coalition destroys Yemen Houthis missile launch sites

The Saudi-led coalition destroyed sites used by Houthis in Yemen to launch missiles at the kingdom, the military alliance said on Sunday. Saudi Arabia’s TV, said the coalition announced the “destruction of ballistic missile (launch) sites run by the Houthi militias in Saada”, a northern Yemeni province bordering Saudi Arabia and controlled by the Houthis.
The latest development came after days of escalating tensions. On Friday, the Saudi-led coalition launched airstrikes on Yemen’s port city of Hodeida, after Houthi shore-based missile attacked two Saudi oil tankers. The Saudi coalition strikes began after midnight on Friday. “The coalition will not allow the Houthi militias to build military capabilities that threaten regional waters,” read Sunday’s coalition statement.

    The Saudi’s need to get boots on the ground and eliminate the missiles and their operators. Launch sites tend to be just basic sites with little to no operational capability. The real threats are the missiles, their storage sites, and the personnel that operate them.

      Boots on the ground ? To the best of available information , Saudi Houtis or Shia tribes , are about 15% owners of Saudi Arabian lands , and same of course population wise . The boots on the ground to do what ? To blow their own population up and kill it . Those 15 % control about 50% of desert , and its resources , and Americans , really paranoid about them , one day coming and leveling everything American democracy and “reeeal” values stand for in Saudi Arabia. Mind you also Iranians are also present in Saudi kingdom main , as well in UAE , that trade with them or for them in Africa. So please write something potent , since disinformation makes no more sense. Would not be surprised if it all being provoked by American British stockpiles of Scads they got in Iraq, Just ask Israelis , they have them too.

    Why boots on the ground? Why not just some white phosphorous and napalm?

    A long as this also makes it impossible to fire on Saudi tankers – and cause another ecological disaster…

    Stuck mobile sites. Sites not used to impact shipping. A much different weapon set is used for ships. Do take notice Saudi made a statement about shipping. That warning is most likely an omen of things to come.

    The information used by Houthis to target oil shipping that crosses Bab al-Mandeb came from an Iranian spy ship based in Africa that plies the waters around the Red Sea. Take that ship out and you send the Iranians a message they WILL hear!

    Now, destroy the spy ship and its port of origin.

    The problem with the Saudis is that they are caving to international (EUs) pressure. Huge mistake, they should level Saada to the ground and the war will end.
