Yemen: Rebels use saturation missile attacks in which to try and breach Saudi Patriot anti-missile system

(Aden) I mentioned the other day how the Yemeni  Houthi rebels have started importing suicide drones from Iran in which to try and knock out the radar systems used by Saudi patriot missile system in which allow them to hit any Saudi city with a ballistic missile . Well last night (Tue 28 Mar) the Houthi tried a new tactic in launching 4 Ballistic missiles in the direction of the Saudi cities of Abha and Khamis Mushayt in an attempt to swamp the missile defence system.

Unfortunately for the rebels, the patriot missile system is more than up to the task and took them all out. (Mind you they did launch 6 missile interceptors at the incoming Ballistic missiles)

The latest attack brought the number of Yemeni ballistic missiles that the Saudis have reported to have been shot down by the RSADF since June 2015 to at least 150.
