The bomb used by the US-Saudi aggression in bombing the Hodeidah Electricity Corporation is an American satellite-guided bomb with Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), which is internationally prohibited because it contains uranium, the Yemeni Executive Center for Mine Action revealed on Thursday.
“After examining the parts that were found at the place of targeting, the results showed that the weapon used in targeting the station on March 27 was a US-made JDAM bomb of the GBU-31 type,” the center said in a statement.
The center explained that the bomb led to the complete destruction of the company, all of its departments, equipment and devices, and the death and injury of engineers working in it.
JDAM munitions are manufactured by the Boeing Company, an American multinational company that manufactures aircraft, aerospace and defense industries, and Woodward, a US company that makes components for guidance and control systems for bombs.
The American fortification-busting bomb has the ability to penetrate up to four meters of reinforced concrete. Its temperature when it explodes reaches 2,800-3,500 degrees Celsius.
The bomb is capable of carrying high explosives weighing up to 23 kg and is made of AFX-757. It has a total weight of 129 kg.
