The Saudi-led invasion of Yemen is a visual demonstration of the fact that a big military budget [67.6 billion USD in the case of Saudi Arabia] does not mean that it would be easy to wage some short victorious war. Saudi Arabia’s “short victorious invasion of Yemen” has been ongoing since 2015 and it does not seem to be close to any victory. In fact, the Saudi-led coalition is losing the conflcit with Ansar Allah (the Houthis).
Just recently, Ansar Allah carried out a series of drone and missile strikes on Saudi Arabia’s infrastructure:
- On September 14, Ansar Allah targeted Aramco oil facilities in Saudi Arabia’s Buqayq and Hijrah Khurays with 10 UAVs and a cruise missile;
- On September 8, Ansar Allah targeted a military position of Saudi-led forces in Khamis Mushait with several Qasef K2 loitering munitions;
- On September 7, Ansar Allah targetd a Saudi military point in the Khamis Mushait area with several Qasef K2 loitering munitions;
- On September 7, Ansar Allah targeted Saudi Arabia’s Najran Airport with a Badr-1 missile.
