An Israeli study by Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies affirmed that the ballistic missiles fired by Yemeni joint forces , the so called Houthis ,are extremely dangerous because of their high accuracy and technical development, claiming that Yemen obtained these missiles from Iran and North Korea.

The study claimed that the Saudi depth is under threats, following the firing of ballistic missiles by the Yemeni joint forces, which increase the chances of Saudi Arabia’s intention to purchase Israeli air defense systems to faceit.

The study, which was released by the Center’s website on Saturday, emerged that Saudi Arabia expressed this year a desire to supply anti-missile defense systems, especially the Iron Dome system, and the Trophy system, considering that this desire shows the significant improvement in the relationship between Tel Aviv and Riyadh.

The study said that Saudi Arabia is trying to exploit its relations with the Israeli entity to strengthen its deterrent power and to improve its ability to confront the growing Iranian role in the region.

The study indicated that Saudi Arabia could be a testing field of the air defense systems efficiency.

In March 2015, Saudi Arabia and a coalition of its regional allies — mainly the united Arab Emirates and Jordan — started  a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people later, the war has yielded little to that effect.

It has killed 14,291 civilians. Among the 14,291 killed victims are 2,086 women and 9,148 men, according to statistics approved by the Legal Center for Rights and Development.

The number of wounded has reached 22,537, of which are 2,284 women and 17,384 men, who have to accept their new reality of no longer being capable of living a normal life

Moving on to recheck on the damages inflicted by the Yemeni infrastructure, reports indicate that the Saudi regime targeted, with American intelligence support, 15 airports, 14 ports, 2,425 roads and bridges, 179 stations and power generators, 688 water tanks and networks, 410 stations & communication networks, 1,761 government institutions and 41, 3297 destroyed and damaged houses.

According to the latest statistics published by the Legal Center for Rights and Development, nearly 269 chicken and cattle farms have been bombed. In addition and amid an unprecedented famine witnessed in Yemen, the Saudi-led coalition struck 307 factories, 609 commercial markets, 6,912 business establishments, 722 food stores, 596 food tankers, 349 fuel stations, 262 fuel tankers and 3,757 transporters

Almost everything is a target in Yemen, including service facilities, whereas the most recent statistics report the bombing of 903 mosques, 309 hospitals and health centers, 869 institutions and schools, 141 university facilities, 264 tourism facilities, 112 sports facilities, 35 media establishments, 216 archeological sites and finally, while imposing a fatal siege on Yemen, 2,654 agricultural fields targeted.
