They would have to be tightly parked next to each other  and the missile would have to hit just the right place... possible with Iskander but not with a modified SA-2.

    Have you seen how tanks are parked tight to each other when Iraqis hit with one Scud and destroyed roughly a dozen and destroyed two dozen more?

    Besides the infograph does not say anywhere how many have been used.

    They've fired several (4?) balistic missiles in the past 3-4 days. A mixture of Tochka's and S-75 (Qaher-1)...the damage assesment is probably exagerated

    One Qaher-1 was apparently shot down

    Saudi Arabia Intercepts Missile Fired from Yemen

    Despite a ceasefire and peace talks, attacks have continued in Yemen between rebels and a Saudi-led coalition, which on Monday said it had intercepted a missile targeting Saudi Arabia’s southern border region.

    Fired from inside Yemen just before dawn, air defenses stopped the missile from reaching the kingdom's southern Jazan district, the coalition said in a statement.

    "Air forces immediately destroyed the launch pad inside Yemen," the coalition said.

    The attack was only the most recent in the consistent fighting, despite a seven-day ceasefire in conjunction with peace talks in Switzerland. Ground skirmishes in Yemen have also continued.

    On Saturday, three civilians died when shellfire from Yemen struck the border city of Najran. A day earlier, the coalition said Saudi air defenses intercepted a ballistic missile launched from Yemen. A second missile struck a desert area east of Najran city, the Associated Press reported.

    Those attacks came after a local source reported that on September 13 a missile struck a desert area of the kingdom's southern region, causing no damage.

    Peace talks between Yemen's Saudi-backed government and the Iran-backed Shia Houthi opposition faction concluded on Sunday without a breakthrough, hours before the latest missile attack.

    The ceasefire will be extended for another seven days after it officially expires on Monday, said the head of the Yemeni government negotiating team.

    On Friday Saudi Arabia's Border Guard force repeated a warning that residents should stay away from the frontier between the two countries. Coalition warplanes and troops have been supporting forces in Yemen loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi against the Houthis and troops loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

    More than 80 people, most of them soldiers and border guards, have been killed in shelling and cross-border skirmishes in the kingdom's south since coalition operations began in Yemen in March.

    doesn't the fact that ISIS seem to have hundreds of kilometers of coastline with cities on both the indian ocean in hadhramaut and the mediterenean in sirte libya bother anyone in the world? It seems the issue isn't being thought of as particularly bothersome by the wider world...

    What chances does ISIS have to seize one country and retain control over it for 10 years?

    Say, Libya?

    well. that's where their main focus seem to be nowadays... they're basically evacuating their core people out of Iraq and towards turkey now.

    in iraq-syria they had:
    -landlocked country
    -surrounded by heathen enemies with strong militaries they couldn't overpower and are now being pushed back even in their core support base territories in (iraq, syria, iran).
    -very little wealth (oil production in their region doesn't even reach 100-200k barrels / day)
    -need a third party to trade (via turkey)

    whereas in Libya:
    -no heathens around (easier to co-opt the local population if they build up their wealth and legal infrastructure)
    -direct access to the med sea
    -potential access to 2M barrels / day in oil production
    -very small local population to keep under control

    It looks more like a miss. The other "cloud" patches are also probably from the warheads of all the other SAMs that had missed prior to this one.

    What I was getting at was that the "clouds" are possibly not clouds but are the previously exploded SAM warheads.

    Well i suppose it could be i cant rule it out but i dont think its very likely, probably just low lvl clouds, not that i have seen Tochka flying during night but i did saw SA3/SA6 and that is about what you get when its flying under cover of clouds visually.

    Yemeni forces launched a ballistic missile Qahir1 at the Saudi Jizan port. Apparently some 15+ hours ago.

    Apparently Bahrein operated F16 crashed on Yemeni border due to technical failure:







    "A Bahraini fighter jet taking part in the Saudi-led coalition battling rebel forces in Yemen crashed on Wednesday in Saudi Arabia due to a "technical error," the alliance said. The F-16 jet crashed in the kingdom's southwestern region of Jizan near the border with Yemen, the coalition said in a statement on the official SPA news agency. The pilot was located safely, it said."

    "Kuwait has decided to send ground forces to take part in the war on Yemen’s Iran-backed Huthi rebels, a local newspaper reported Tuesday. Al-Qabas daily cited an informed source saying Kuwait’s cabinet has approved sending the troops to Saudi Arabia, which is leading a coalition against the rebels, as soon as early next week.

    Kuwait’s participation in the Yemen war has so far been limited to the airforce. No details were provided about the size of the force. Since March, Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out air strikes against the Huthis and forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh after they overran large parts of Yemen."
