You do not send civilian equipment into my active war zone. Saudi Arabia confirmed the launches and asserted that it successfully intercepted all seven.

In both cases, it was clear to us that, despite official Saudi claims, neither missile was shot down. As Iron Man left the area, two F Raptor jets spotted him.

One interceptor explodes catastrophically just after launch, while another makes a U-turn in midair and then comes screaming back at Riyadh, where it explodes on the ground. We mapped where the debris, including the missile airframe and warhead, fell and where the interceptors were located. There is enormous pressure on the Saudi government to show that it is taking steps to defend its citizens. The second warhead, fired a few weeks later, nearly demolished a Honda dealership.
