The presented video of the attack by the Yemeni Houthis in the Marib region shows the tactics of the group

The Houthis released six members of the Baha'i Muslim sect under arrest, one of whom had previously been sentenced to death. They were accused of aiding the Arab coalition. The prisoners were released in honor of the great Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha.


At the moment, the Supreme Political Council of the Shiite movement Ansar-Allah, whose representatives are called the Houthis, controls less than 22 percent of Yemen's territory, but more than 73 percent of the country's population lives there. The main opponents of the Houthis are the official authorities, whom they call Hadists, as well as the Arab coalition supporting them, led by Saudi Arabia.

The Ansar Allah Movement operates amid the ongoing civil war in Yemen against the backdrop of the invasion of the Saudi coalition, therefore maintaining the combat capability of the armed formations is one of its main tasks. For example, yesterday there was information that the soldiers of the special forces of the ground forces and the Houthi Navy received a new weaponas well as body armor, protective helmets, communication and positioning devices.

In the West, it is argued that Iran is providing significant support to the Yemeni militias. According to the portal Al-Ain from the United Arab Emirates, the US permanent representative to the UN Security Council demanded that Tehran stop supplying weapons to Yemen.

Ordinary fighters cannot even dream of such equipment, which the Houthi special forces received. Usually they are dressed in local peasant clothes and sandals, armed with Kalashnikovs. They also have light machine guns, sometimes ATGMs. They also use large-caliber machine guns mounted on jeeps. In addition, the Yemeni craftsmen have established the production of handicraft unmanned aerial vehicles from improvised means, with the help of which they inflict effective strikes not only in Yemen, but also at facilities in Saudi Arabia.

The Houthis have practically no bases for permanent deployment, as they can be destroyed aviation Arab coalition. Therefore, their troops constantly move, using mountain caves and networks of underground tunnels for cover. For a surprise attack from ambushes, they skillfully use any natural irregularities in the terrain.

A few days ago, the YouTube channel Planet in War from the United States posted a video of one of the Houthi attacks in the Marib region, which shows the actions of the rebels.


The video shows the tactics of the Houthis - an attack in small groups with the possible use of single pickups, the use of anti-tank systems, sniper weapons - an effective defeat of enemy personnel and equipment.

          Yes, Iran is calmly hammering missiles at American military bases in Iraq if necessary. And who is whose ally is on his side.

      The SA will not run out of patience, this is a fundamental religious issue, but the SA's wallet can really empty from problems with the Houthis

      Never.
      The Saudis quite deservedly take slaps in the face from the Yemeni Houthis and Iranians for the simple reason that, like the iodine-deficient Ukrop army, they believed that "Ameryka is with us." The only trick is that all those who believe in the United States end up raking in love, economic ruin and shame. There is not a single country that, having contacted mattresses, or become the object of their attention in terms of introducing "democracy", would be a model of economic and political prosperity. The output, traditionally, is only ruin, war, blood and accelerated economic degradation with a complete disintegration of state institutions of power.

      No matter how the Saudis themselves are torn apart ... The Houthis regularly enter the territory of the KSA, kill their generals at airbases with rockets and make holes in oil refineries (more precisely, in oil treatment plants, but everything is in one place there), so production drops by a quarter .. ...

    Well, it’s not for nothing that they say “the need for inventions is cunning!” Otherwise, the Hausites would have been smashed to smithereens! They have learned to fight, and they fight much better than the same Saudis!

        Good movie. It makes you think about the fact that, despite the fact that we all descended from Adam and Eve, but we hammer each other "in a relative" for the sake of political monsters who are pushing their heads against countries and peoples for personal possession of power and money. Well done fighter, he acted on the instructions of Suvorov - "Die yourself, but help your comrade"

          Unfortunately this is the case. But as the "prima donna" sang:
          "This world was not invented by us,
          This world was not invented by me. "
          And in this world, everyone has the opportunity to live in such a way that it would not be excruciatingly painful for the years spent aimlessly. There are countless examples of this in the history of the Russian state. hi

    If the hardened Houthis are given additional weapons, then I do not envy the Saudis.
