Saudis Intercept Ballistic Missile Fired From Yemen

It's deja vu all over again in Saudi Arabia. Al Arabiya reports that a ballistic missile from Yemen has been intercepted on Thursday by Saudi air defense forces in southern city of Khamis Mushait in the south western province of Assir.

The missile attack is the second this month since the November 4 missile intercepted near King khalid International Airport in Riyadh.

Notably, Huthi TV is claiming that the missile "hit the target"...

Huthi rebels fired a ballistic missile today that hit a military target in Saudi Arabia, rebel media in Yemen said, after the leader of the group threatened Riyadh with retaliation over a blockade.

 

"We confirm the success of our ballistic missile trial, which hit its military target inside Saudi Arabia," the Huthi-run Al-Masira television channel said.

 

Earlier, rebel chief Abdulmalik al-Huthi warned against "prolonging the blockade" imposed on Yemen following a November 4 Huthi missile attack that was intercepted near Riyadh international airport.

The Arab League in November 19 cited that since the beginning of the conflict in Yemen 78 ballistic missiles have been fired towards Saudi Arabia from Yemen.

They said this would happen. Men who understood the region and its peoples, more than a century ago told representatives of our Western nations that if we went over there for oil, the peoples of those regions hate each other so much, and their choices of action are so vengeful and potentially violent, that conflict would grow and over time it would envelope the whole world.

Yemen says it hit the target. Whom do you believe,the Ansarullah movement fighting against the invaders from SA or the sponsor of wahhabi takfiri salafi terrorism all over the world? Tough choice.In related news from the East front(where things are definitely not quiet):-Libya asked Russia for help with printing its money-Egypt,a US ally ?,allows Russia to use its military bases and airspace;let's see when Egypt has another terrorist attack ,like the recent one-the Beit Jinn pocket,near the Golan Heights ,where there are Al Qaeda terrorists supported by our"ally " in the ME,the zionist state,is shrinking,SAA gaining control. I can only imagine Mileikovsky's contortions and convulsions,as he sees his projects going to the sewer.-the zionist apartheid state started bombing Gaza again ,killing civilians. There are really good at that. Not a peep from the US-Watch the recent Tillerson's speech at the Khazarian Wilson center,where he accuses Russia of every  possible sin,including invading Georgia. Do not watch it after you ate,you may vomit.Between him,the mad dog ,the Nikki Haley abomination,the Pompeo disaster at the See Eye Ayy,the dead on arrival Sessions,the Goldman thieves and the Pentagram killers who populate the government,I'm asking where is the swamp draining. Am I aiming too high?

bal·lis·tic mis·sileb??listik ?mis?l/noun 

  1. a missile with a high, arching trajectory, that is initially powered and guided but falls under gravity onto its target.

....so a kids rocket qualifies as a ballistic missile.

So then, if SA is able to intercept a missile from Yemen, we shouldn't worry about N Korea missiles, right?  I mean we can do the same, I would think.  Unless it's a false flag like 911, that is.

The last one they shot down left pieces scattered about including either the main thruster or the warhead, depending on which news outlet you read.  They had pictures.  It was clearly a kerosene-fired engine from a 1926 Hoyt-Clagwell "Fireball" farm tractor. Yemenese missile technology defies physics.

What type of “missile” is this?

A small rocket with 50lb. Payload or one with 2,000 lb. payload?

Hezbollah (Iran proxy) has thousands of the little one but not too many of the big ones.
