The rhetoric from the Sudanese visit is decidedly anti-western, whereas Saudi Arabia is still in the western camp.
A spokesman for the Houthis had said that the rebels were ready to fight Israel alongside Hezbollah.
In a speech he delivered in commemoration of the killing of the Houthi movement's founder, the movement's current leader said: "everything that is happening in our region serves the Zionists."
The missile used solid-propellant and was termed as Badr P-1, an upgrade from the Badr-1.

The Middle East’s other important war in Yemen has broad strategic significance after Iran threatened the world’s oil shipping.
"We know that this is not going to affect the civilian life in Riyadh or other parts of the kingdom. We know that the Houthis are acting unpredictably," a Saudi official said.
A Saudi-led coalition riding high over its successful capture of Hodeidah airport from the Iran-aligned Houthis faces a daunting challenge to seize Yemen's main seaport.
The capture of the airport would be an important gain for the Western-backed coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
