Yemen's army losing ground in the center of the country without a fight: the Hussites opened a second front

Yemeni information sources report that the units of the Ansar Allah group, often called the Hussites, opened a second front in Yemen. Having created a large group of forces and assets (by the standards of the Hussites themselves) in the area of ​​the city of Kania, the Ansar Allah detachments managed to develop an offensive in just a few hours, during which several cities and towns - Jabal al-Failak, Al -Domani, the outskirts of the city of Radman, Aba al-Dahban, Al-Bayad and others.


According to recent reports, by the unexpected opening of a second front in the central part of the country, the Hussites solved an important task for themselves. A large group in the province of Marib can be used in almost any direction, and any of its use is a blow to the rear of the forces of the army of the Yemeni government and the so-called Saudi coalition.

Against this background, several Hussite detachments once again reached the border of Saudi Arabia and fired on Saudi troops in the area of ​​the city of Jizan.

The main goal of the Hussites at the moment is to take control of the Mahliya region. This will cut the lines of communication between the two groups of troops of Yemen and their Saudi allies.

At the same time, in Yemen itself they complain that the Yemeni military, in the case of the approach of the Ansar Allah groups, often actually refuse to fight, surrendering both their positions and settlements. This causes anger in the camp of the Saudi command, because often taking these positions and cities at one time was accompanied by considerable losses. Husites on their second front are moving very actively, increasing control territories.

Questions are also raised by the fact that, with the modern Saudi coalition’s modern intelligence and weapons, it “missed” the increased concentration of Hussite forces and assets in the province of Marib.

        The Saudis and the “coalitions” from Yemen need to be blamed ... the faster, the better! Although the areas of Saudi Arabia bordering Yemen are mainly inhabited by Shiites, the Hussites also feel “at home” there. In vain the Saudis altogether got into Yemen, the warriors damn it.
        Well, Husits ​​are great, here are the guys in sandals!

          The problem of Sunnis and Shiites has not arisen today. It’s not special, but the reading of the Koran. It is supported by the fact that the minority occupies all the leading posts, and the majority, but a slightly different interpretation of the Koran, remain under them. This injustice is unsolvable for now. Until they stop and the majority will receive power, or until they agree on a joint government, which is unlikely.

          The question will already be open: will the Husits ​​now stop at the borders of the CA? or go to the neighbor with a return call of "politeness"? The East, of course, is a delicate matter, but I think that it’s so easy they won’t stop there.

            Yes, and trump recently threatened the Saudis to remove from them the American military "roof" - what a happy combination of circumstances. In any case, the KSA will have to fork out a lot.

          I'm afraid that "the train has already left." The Hussites will simply tumble down after them to the Saudis home and arrange there a "Bartholomew night" throughout the country. They have nothing to lose besides their tattered trousers and worn sandals, but you can get a lot. smile

        Still, I would like to become more familiar with the ideology of the Hussites, what are their goals, what are they like. Where are the sources of income and what are they for which they are arming and conducting military operations. And what are the goals and ideology of the Yemeni government.
        Why government troops do not resist the Hussites.

          Zeidis of the Shiite movement, originally living in the northern provinces of Yemen. For a long time they were persecuted by the Salifi-Sunni government and the population of the southern provinces. They lived in a heap, apart and quite peacefully. Then in 2004 the official Sanaa decided to tighten the screws even more, and the Houthis demanded autonomy. Troops and aircraft were sent to the north, in response, Hussein Badr al-Din Al-Husi (the leader of the movement) called for an armed struggle.

          In the period from 2004 to 2009 they fought with the government army, occupying the northern province of Saada and reaching the border of the KSA. They were fine with small arms, in Yemen, according to the 1992 law, you can generally acquire any rifle (even machine guns). In 2009, they inflicted a major defeat on the army, and ATGMs and MANPADS were seized at army warehouses. Over the next three years, they began to conduct raids on the territory of the KSA, shot down 4 Su-22 attack aircraft of the government, and knocked out autonomy for themselves in 2010. In 2011, with the beginning of the Arab Spring, the conflict resumed. Sanaa, looking at the example of Egypt and Syria, canceled autonomy and tried to send troops. Very in vain ... The army team partially rebelled and went over to the side of the Houthis.

          Over the next 4 years, two more provinces were gradually recaptured. In the meantime, the government has changed in Sanaa, the country was headed by the former Prime Minister Khadi. He decided to reduce the quota for oil derivatives, which led to massive strikes and protests (as if our gasoline price suddenly jumped three times). The main demand of the population was the resignation of the "corrupt cabinet". By mid-September, protesters clashed with security forces on the outskirts of Yemen's capital Sana'a. Two days later, the Houthis were able to break the resistance of the security forces and occupy a number of districts of the capital, including seizing state institutions and establishing their own checkpoints.

          On January 20, 2015, rebels took over the presidential palace in Sanaa. Khadi realized that the case smelled fried, and agreed to negotiate. Agreeing on a new constitution, turning Yemen into a federal state, the Houthis were to receive autonomy. The rebels, in turn, pledged to withdraw their forces from government facilities. The Supreme Political Council was to become the supreme body of power. Khadi was afraid that he would be killed like Gaddafi, and resigned, but the Parliament did not accept it. Then the former president simply fled abroad. Already in early March, the Coalition led by Saudi Arabia launched an intervention in Yemen.

          Now the Houthis are supported by Iran. It supplies them with contraband OTRK, MANPADS, ATGM and SAM for old air defense systems, plus sights and specific shooters. This is done "shareware", but in fact as payment for the fact that the Houthis have supported Hezbollah in Lebanon since the early 1990s. At the moment, the Houthis control 22 percent of Yemen's territory and 73 percent of the total population. They have been fighting for 5 years for freedom, independence from the KSA, lifting the blockade and preventing aggression, amid famine, a progressive cholera epidemic and constant air strikes. Something like that.

        The most interesting thing here is that the Hussites can easily transfer the War to the territory of the Saudis, striking them in the most painful place - the Wallet, which they demonstrated with a blow to the Oil Terminal and tankers. The locals of the main oil-producing regions of Saudi Arabia - mainly consists of Shiites, which is also in the hands of the Husits ​​and Iran supporting them. Therefore, I think All the most interesting things for the Saudis are yet to come. Expensive toys in the form of modern military equipment, mercenaries - far from a panacea for motivated fighters, the UAE - got out of Yemen on time, but they have no borders with Yemen, but Iran is close by.
        If you help the Hussites with weapons, you will not need “OPEC + deals” at all, Oil, in the event of a systematic Hussite attack, will take off to record levels! Beneficiaries will be - Iran and Russia.

      Husits ​​and T-80 in the province of Marib, where fairly large-scale hostilities continue. The textured friend with a kat is attached.
      T-80s were also supplied for the needs of the pre-war Yemeni army and most of these vehicles went to the Hussites. Some, after 5 years of war, are still in use, and for operations in Marib they are clearly involved.

    Well, Hadi will save only the transfer of the Saudi army.

    They are streaming on all fronts. The strategic island of Socorta is lost. The landed southern committees (sponsored by the UAE) knocked out the Hadists, and the governor's palace fell on Friday.


    The whole island is now under the proxies of the UAE. UAE proxies also repulsed the Hadi attacks in the Zanjabar area and went on a counterattack at the port of Shukrah, in order to connect with the enclaves of the southerners in Baykhaf. Those forces that were transferred from Marib, in the role of reinforcement and fire brigade, are now firmly stuck in Hadi.


    The UAE, on the other hand, poured out good equipment and reinforcements for its puppets, and the Saudis lose interest in Hadi more and more ... I won’t be surprised if, in the result, in a year or two the Hadists will be finished, and the Husites and Southerners will again divide Yemen into two countries.

    Questions are also raised by the fact that, with the modern Saudi coalition’s modern intelligence and weapons, it “missed” the increased concentration of Hussite forces and assets in the province of Marib.

    Question - Why haven’t they missed yet, Schaub so surprised?

    World War I and World War II devastated most of Europe. 1rd World Africa and Asia. You look at the Middle East and begin to understand that there, at such a pace, everyone will soon fight against all under the fine guidance of the powers that be. (And the powers that be with each other, only by other methods).
