Despite the ongoing peace negotiations in Stockholm to resolve the situation in Yemen, the coalition air forces led by Saudi Arabia, as transmits Lebanese news agency Al-Masdar News continued to strike at the positions of Yemeni rebels.


In total, for the 2 of the day this week, the coalition air forces launched more than 50 airstrikes, mainly on targets in the provinces of Sa'ad, Hodeidah, Hajj, Taiz and Marib. At the same time, due to the extreme weakness of the remaining Husit air defense systems, the coalition air group did not suffer any losses, excluding the shooting down of December 12 2018 over the Al-Duriheim area of ​​the light reconnaissance aircraft (according to other data, it was a UAV).

In addition, on the ground last week, units of Saudi mercenaries resumed active hostilities in the governorate of Hodeidah, the purpose of which was to capture a strategic port located in the province. But success, despite active support from the air, once again hired by Saudi money Sudanese and Somalis did not reach.

However, the main newsannounced by UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutertesch as сообщает “Euronews” TV channel, was the conclusion of a preliminary agreement on a cease-fire in Yemen.

According to the provisions of the adopted document, the parties mutually withdraw their units from Hodeida, and this port is placed under international control of the UN in order to ensure humanitarian supplies of food, drinking water and medicines.

“Today we have witnessed a turning point that is extremely important for a future political settlement in Yemen,” said A. Gutterish.

The parties to the conflict and the international community express the hope that de-escalation in the Hodeida zone and the lifting of the blockade of Yemen will favorably resolve the difficult humanitarian situation in this country (where up to a third of the population is literally hungry, and up to 3 million people who became internally displaced are on the verge of survival).

      Can you first resolve the situation in the Donbass? You look, commander of the couch: Russian there, Russian here. Do you want to help the Hussites? Flag in hand. Go to them as a volunteer and fight for as much as you like.

    But success ... Sudanese and Somalis hired with Saudi money did not reach.
    Not everyone decides money. As the Saudis cannot fight on earth, so are their mercenaries, as neither one nor the other has the core inside that the Hussites have.
    “Today we have witnessed a turning point that is crucial for a future political settlement in Yemen”
    It's not even a comma on the war page, but they're about a "turning point".

      The Hussites are fighting for their land and their country, and this gives a great charge of patriotism and fanaticism, readiness for self-sacrifice.

      The troops of the Saudi coalition are fighting for money - both in the air and on the ground (although contingents from many countries of quite radical Sunni Islam are recruited there, but in Yemen they do not show much fanaticism in their readiness to die for money - they came to earn money, and not to die ) ... And Western instructors, who also came to "work for the grandmother," to put it mildly, prefer a sluggish campaign according to the principle "the soldier sleeps - and the service goes on, and the money is dripping."

      So the war there may go on for a long time ...

    This is by no means the first time that the editors are inattentive to the material. F-16 with F-15 beguiled.
