Houthis claim to have stopped the Saudi advance in central Yemen

Reports are coming from Saudi Arabia that the southern part of the country has been attacked with shock drones. Reports indicate that the drones were fired from the border areas of Yemen by Houthi rebels.


The Saudi military command says it has intercepted two drones belonging to the Houthi group, which, it adds, are "supported by Iran."

We are talking about the so-called "kamikaze" drones. The first drone was aimed at one of the objects of the city of Khamis-Mushait, the other at Jizan.

The total number of drones fired across Saudi Arabia has not been officially reported. Accordingly, there is no data on how effective the actions of the Saudi air defense crews were. Based on unofficial data, there were three drones.

Information resources controlled by the Houthis write that the Ansar Allah units (as the Houthis themselves call themselves) were able to stop the advance of Saudi troops in the central part of Yemen. We are talking about territories that are rich in oil and for which the most active battles have been going on in recent weeks. At the same time, it should be noted that there is no united front in this area, since the Houthi units most often use the tactics of multiple strikes against the Saudi coalition troops from several directions. Therefore, the term "offensive" can be very conditional.

It can be assumed that the attempt to attack the cities of Saudi Arabia with the help of drones could become a diversionary maneuver to strike at Saudi troops in Yemen itself. The number of casualties among the coalition troops is not reported.

    The Saudis and KOs themselves are probably no longer happy that they got involved in a war. We thought to disperse the peasants with an easy march, but that's how it happened

      It's easy to get involved in a war, but to get out of it ...

      In essence, the coalition is crumbling, practically the Saudis are fighting alone and paying the mercenaries, but they do not know how to get out, they cannot find an excuse. Negotiation proposal failed

        The problem can be solved simply.
        The war is fought over one single man - the fugitive Preza, the protege of the Saudis.
        If he eats the fungi and glues the flippers, there will be nothing to fight for.

          He's just an excuse. There will be no such reason, they will find another one. the presence of a "ownerless" oil region motivates people to get their hands on it. In addition, the Saudis killed President Saleh back in December 2017. It's just that the Saudis hoped that their army was packed with modern weapons and the war with barefoot rebels would be an easy walk for them, but as it turned out, the presence of bells and whistles does not guarantee success. hi

            Yes, I somehow missed this news. Well, then the war is for a long time.

    A strange war ...
    The war of the mercenary occupiers with the local population ...
    And the ears of the mattresses stick out from behind the hillock ...
    And from the other side the Persians look out

      Nothing strange, everything has long been defined and classified:
      Proxy war (English proxy war, also proxy war, war by proxy) is an international conflict between two countries that are trying to achieve their own goals through military operations taking place on the territory and using the resources of a third country, under the guise of resolving the internal conflict in this third country (the classic definition given by Karl Deutsch in 1964).

    The Houthis have repeatedly proved that they can perfectly beat the Saudis armed with modern weapons. The Saudi spirit is weak against the determination and resilience of the Houthi.

      There are almost no Saudis there. There are too few natural Saudis.
      Negroes are fighting for them. And what technique do not give, there will be no sense.

    There are no so few of them, almost 35 million people and besides them there is also the UAE - 10 million people. The Emirates will not be poorer than the Saudis, and they also have a huge amount of modern weapons.
