Saudi-coalition earth movers and vehicles find themselves in a Houthi ATGM shooting gallery somewhere in Yemen during a recent compilation video released by the rebels.
Houthi rebels target a cluster of earth movers likely building a road or some other infrastructure purportedly in the border region between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Firing an unidentified but probable Iranian ATGM system, the Houthis shoot the first missile and nail a backhoe. After this first explosion, several other drivers recognize the danger and begin to scramble away from their machinery. The rebels quickly engage and destroy a second backhoe and completely halt the entire work project. The video then follows two more separate attacks by the Houthis targeting several coalition trucks loaded with soldiers and then another attack on a earth mover.
