Houthi Directional Mines Captured in Midi, Yemen

These weapons and explosives recently captured from Houthi forces in Midi, Yemen. The directional mines look well made although they do exhibit features similar to IEDs such as det cord initiation. Possibly Iranian manufacture as these are very similar to Iranian directional mines previously captured and documented in Syria.
