ANSAR ALLAH MEDIA REVEALS DETAILS REGARDING CRUISE MISSILE STRIKE ON ABHA AIRPORT (INFOGRAPHICS)
[ Editor’s Note: Saudis stated that the missile hit the arrival hall of the airport, imagine that. That is what a propagandist would put out to claim innocents were targeted.
We know that is a lie because, if it were true, we would be seeing photos of the damage and the injured civilians being interviewed. But they are not. Also, a cruise missile strike with a 1000-lb warhead and no one killed – that’s impossible.
The last thing that the Saudis would show is a photo of a destroyed control tower. We may get lucky and one of the commercial satellite companies might leak a photo, but don’t hold your breath. That would have repercussions.
The stretched part of the Houthis’ claim is that they defeated the US Patriot system. I could be wrong, but I doubt such a battery would be at a regional airport, when there are many more important facilities to protect.
The Houthis were able to hit a key pumping station for the Saudis’ main pipeline. So that tells me that it had the technical ability to hit a control tower, and would not have wasted a valuable missile on a reception area … Jim W. Dean ]
