The Yemeni Army’s Rocket Battalion launched three or four new ballistic missiles at their Saudi oppressors yesterday which they claimed hit their
targets at the military base outside Khamis Mushayt, and is what regional press are reporting. However, the
Saudis claim to have intercepted four
targets. The Yemen video release of
the new Qaher-M2 medium-ranged BM only shows three launches. Perhaps it was only three, but the Saudis launched six just to be safe. The video
of the Qaher-M2 launches were easy enough to find. But I had to scour for some time through some twitter and youtube members in a language with funny
letters that I do not understand (probably Arabic) to find the video of the Patriot defense in action, which originated on reddit. Video shows what is
clearly at least one direct interception.
Qaher-M2 BM launch from Yemen.
Patriot ABM interception from Saudi Arabia and a local news report on it showing one of the downed missiles.
I have not seen any reporting on damage from their target, the military airfield which hosts many of the air power which has been destroying Yemen's
infrastructure and contributing to their national famine epidemic. Funny how MSM is not touching that with a 100 foot pole.
And the global war continues...

oddly enough it looks nothing like the Qaher-M2 shown in the first video. So either that image is from a previous interception with an older BM which
they are showing as example andI cannot verify as I don't understand any of that language, or perhaps one of the parties is not being 100.
If its not from a previous intercept, than either the Yemeni's did not actually launch the Qaher-M2, or the Saudis are showing BS. If I could only
understand Arabic, I could do more research.
It looks like an image from an intercept last year to me. They may have said it too, but who can tell without a translator.
