How Yemeni missile attacks affect the American and Israeli air effort
Observers of aviation navigation have detected movements of American aircraft from several US bases in the region with the aim of countering rockets launched from Yemen. Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation army has released footage showing the interception of a cruise missile over the Red Sea.
According to an analysis published by the military website “The Drive” regarding the Yemeni rocket attacks, there has been a notable increase in the activity of US Air Force refueling aircraft over Saudi Arabia and the Red Sea last night, as flight tracking data revealed a significant number of flights by “KC-135 Stratotanker” aircraft outside its base at Al-Udeid in Qatar. While flight paths are unconfirmed, these refueling paths are likely linked to the Houthi’s missile or drone activities.
In the same context, the platform “ThePlotSickens” reported on an interesting observation from Turkish sources. They stated that “36 fighter jets, including F-15, F-16, and F-35 aircraft, have been deployed southward, with at least four aircraft flying between Eilat and the Gulf of Aqaba on missions lasting several hours.”
These aircraft, costing tens of thousands of dollars per flying hour, are constantly flying to confront the Houthi missiles and drones, which cost only a few thousand dollars.
As a result, 10% of the Israeli attack aircraft, which could have been used against Gaza and Lebanon, have been diverted from ground bombing.
Although the occupation entity is attempting to downplay the impact of the Yemeni attacks through its media outlets, the continuous monitoring of this significant number of aircraft leads to a partial paralysis of the air entity’s effort and the supporting American effort, which were initially directed towards Gaza. The military spokesman for the occupation army pointed out that Yemen aims to distract the efforts of their military force from Gaza.
