The rocket force within the Yemeni army and the popular committee have unveiled a domestically new smart ballistic missile that is known for its high accuracy in targeting its objectives, reducing collateral damage and leaving its designated target completely destroyed, this comes after more than 1300 days since the start of the Saudi-led campaign against Yemen, which has thousands of killed and wounded civilians.
The Rocket Force media bureau released a statement announcing the design of a new ”smart” short-ranged ballistic missile and solid-propellant named Badr P-1 missile, which is an upgrade of Badr-1 missile system and has a pinpoint accuracy of 3 meters.
Few hours before the announcement of the new smart Badr P-1 ballistic missile, it was tested on the al-Mostahaddeth Sudanese military camp in West coast from near the city of Hodeidah, killing and injuring dozens within the camp and destroying various military equipment.
In the statement, the rocket force said that by 2018, Yemen owns precise ballistic missiles, and in the near future, we will reveal about other systems of ballistic missiles.
Moreover, the rocket force emphasized that if it was not for the Yemeni people financial support, none of these achievements were possible and that the martyrs’ blood, most importantly al-Sammad president, who was killed by a Saudi airstrike, was their motivation to keep on going with what former President al-Sammad and Sayyed al-Houthi promised to be, the year of the ballistic missiles.
There was an exhibition of Badr P-1 ballistic missile that was attended by the president Mahdi al-Mashat and the prime minister along with many other political figures, where photos were released of the exhibition by media bureau of Yemen’s Operations Command Center.
