No stop to missile activity across Saudi borders

Posted 3 June 2020 · Add Comment

While Covid 19 might have stopped flights it did not put any halt on the conflict between Saudi Arabia-led coalition forces and the Yemeni Houthi.

Since Monday, the Saudi-led coalition reportedly shot down multiple Yemeni Houthi rebel drones launched into the Kingdom over the southwest province of Asir.
Similarly, multiple Houthi drones were downed over Asir Province by the Saudi-led coalition on 1 June.
According to Osprey intelligence service, multiple Houthi drones were also shot down over Najran Province in the southwest of the Kingdom on 27 May and a suspected surface-to-surface missile (SSM) launched from Yemen by the Houthis impacted in a rural area of southwest Saudi Arabia’s Jizan Province on 26 May.
Osprey said these incidents mark the newest confirmed set of Houthi rebel drone & SSM strikes targeting the Kingdom since 27 March, when the Saudi-led coalition forces thwarted attacks targeting the capital Riyadh and Jizan Province.
