ⓘ Ya-Ali (missile)

The Ya-Ali is an air-launched cruise missile built by Iran. The missile was first unveiled on 11 May 2014 when Iranian leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei visited the Aerospace Force of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution. According to Janes Defence, the missile has a jet engine inlet and possibly uses a version of the Toloue-4 turbojet Iran produces for its longer-range anti-ship missiles and it is reported to have a range of 700 km. On February 7, 2015, Iran’s Deputy Defense Minister Mohammad Eslami announced that the missile could previously be launched from only Mirage type fighter planes but it can now be launched from every fighter plane that Iran owns. It is named after a Shii religious expression beseeching imam Ali. As an ALCM, the Ya-Ali is discinct from the ground launched cruise missiles in the Houthi inventory. According to Janes Defense Weekly, the Houthis may have used a Quds 1 GLCM in the Abha International Airport attack on 12 June 2019. This airport in southwestern Saudi Arabia is less than 200 km from the Yemeni border. The Iranian Ya-Ali has a much longer range due to being imparted with much more kinetic and potential energy when released from a fighter aircraft such as the Mirage type. The Houthis have no fighter aircraft in their inventory.

Janes defence weekly reported on 16 September 2019, which, according to American officials, "there is reason to believe that the attack on September 14 at two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia were carried out using cruise missiles launched from Iraq, and possibly Iran." He went on to say, "the point of impact show the weapons came from the West to the North-West, and not Yemen, as claimed by the Iranian-backed Yemeni rebel group Houthis "Ansar Allah". It is very difficult to understand how these things can be from anywhere but Iran or Iraq, reports CNN, citing officials as saying." Some targets hit on September 14, 2019 refining facilities in Hail, Saudi Arabia. Abqaiq is located near Bahrain, is located approximately 1000 km from Houthi-controlled part of Yemen, and is located about 300 km from Iran.
