Ground operation of Saudi Arabian and UAE troops in Yemen

Yemen’s Foreign Minister, Riyadh Yasin, announced that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had deployed troops into Yemen and launched a ground military operation. Before that, it must be recalled that the Saudis and representatives of the United Arab Emirates struck air strikes on Yemeni territory.


Ground operation of Saudi Arabian and UAE troops in Yemen


The Yemeni Interior Ministry announced that the ground operation of the "Allies" would allow "very soon to clear Yemen from the Hussites."

For reference: Hussites are called representatives of the group, which at one time created Hussein al-Husi. He is also the founder of the groups Al-Shabab al-Mumin and Ansar Allah. In the middle of 90-x was elected a deputy from one of the Yemeni districts. In 2004, al-Husi was killed. At the moment, the Hussites control several provinces of the country. In a number of other provinces of Yemen, al-Qaida dominates, against which no military operations are conducted ...

Arabic-language media report that before the start of the land operation was involved aviation "Coalitions." As a result of missile and bomb attacks, about 30 people died, most of whom were women and children.

Information Agency Sputnik on the eve reported that while the troops of Saudi Arabia and the UAE can not boast of major successes in Yemen. Moreover, the Hussites succeeded in destroying several sabotage and reconnaissance groups in several kilometers from Sanaa. Fierce fighting goes on in Yemeni province of Marib.

It should be noted that the invasion of the troops of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia in Yemen took place without any discussion of this step in the UN Security Council. At the same time, no words of criticism addressed to the governments of the UAE and the SA were heard from the rostrum of the US State Department, and no sanctions were imposed on Riyadh. Yet another proof that the West remembers international law only when it affects its interests, and not from a favorable side.

    Nonsense .... the Hussites will retreat to the mountains and there they can fight for many many years.

      Not a financier, but a wang - in a week of this "liberation campaign" oil prices will skyrocket. Because the war, judging by the pace of losses in the "Abrams" promises to be protracted.

          They crap in Afghanistan for 10 years - God forbid. When ours left Afghanistan, they left behind at least some infrastructure, roads, a more or less stable regime of Najibullah, which collapsed only when in the 94th EBN ceased to help it at least somehow. Americans came to Afghanistan when the Middle Ages were there, and left the state driven into the Stone Age.

      At night, with the help of UAVs, one can quite efficiently clean mountain areas that are far from settlements.

        Why at night ? Why ARE AWAY FROM THE POPULAR ITEMS?

        The Saudis are quite deliberately "stripping" afternoon settlements artillery fire and aerial bombardments ...

          Because the bodies of the militants at night are clearly visible on the thermal imager. It is more difficult to mask from it - the contrast is stronger, there are more errors in disguise. It’s a hot place there, but at night in the mountains in February it can be about zero in the wind.
          The distance from the city also affects the complexity of detection, the further - the easier, and the likelihood of error decreases, moreover, the range of possible weapons is increasing.

        In fact, the Husits ​​clean up without any UAVs, no thermal imagers and other things help the Saudis. At the end of the video, you can clearly see how some Saudis run, while others roll killed along the slope. Husites, by the way, rarely use optics, but they shoot very accurately and the battles are very competent.

          So then I don’t understand why the Husits ​​of the UAV, but it seems like nobody talked about it.

      Whatever the case ...

      On September 2, 2015, Sputnik news agency published "sensational" news that the troops of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are located in Yemen and are "stubbornly moving forward" in the central province of Marib and in the south of the country.

      Information on the entry of Saudi troops into Yemen was told to the agency by a fugitive foreign minister, Riyad Yasin, who could not resist the bravura statements. According to him, the Hussites currently control no more than 15% of the country's territory. "Soon we will celebrate a new holiday for the liberation of Yemen - liberation from the Hussites," Yasin said.

      Reality, as always, is very different from statements by politicians (all the more so without levers of influence on the situation). Over the past week, the Hussites drove off the armored units of the UAE contingent and southerners from the provinces of Ibb and Damar. The troops of the Saudi coalition are located only on the southern edge of Ibb province, in the province of Damar (where they made their way over two weeks ago) they are not at all.
      Saudi Arabian troops did indeed enter Yemen through the Hussite-controlled areas of the provinces of Hadramut and Al-Jawf, but were stuck in battles in the province of Marib. The battles for the administrative center of the province of Marib have been going on without much success on both sides for more than a week. An attempt to break through in the vicinity of Sana'a was unsuccessful, the enemy DRG that penetrated here were destroyed.

      In the south of the country, which seems to have been taken under control by the southerners and the Saudi-Emirate forces allied with it, everything is not going smoothly either. "The capture of Taiz" turned into fierce protracted battles, continuing to this day. Many quarters of the city as a result of hostilities are completely destroyed. Heavy losses are suffered on both sides. Civilians perish from the fire on both sides; in many areas there is no water or basic medical care.

      The city of Zinjibar was divided between local tribes and al-Qaeda militants. In the port of Aden, there are fights between supporters of independent South Yemen and the same militants of al-Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). A significant part of Aden is already in the hands of terrorists, which can hardly be called a success for local residents. Information is periodically received about the collusion of terrorists and the command of the troops of the Saudi coalition.

        That’s exactly what, as it were! All of this was already there. Entered there, the 30th Egyptian corps packed with armored vehicles and other ammunition, also with our advisers. Here, take an interest in what happened to him. These guys chewing on Kenyan kat have been cut there since the Old Testament times with virtually no respite. And when you consider that the Saudi hamadrils and their accomplices really think that since he is in a modern tank, then they are all afraid and will immediately run away laughing They, like us in Afghanistan, rest against the mountains and will not drive columns along the serpentine road, all the more so they won’t walk a caravan. Take a look and you will already find the videos from there quite interesting for yourself. Yes, actually, here they already laid out the discussion. By the way, they went there a long time ago, they just forgot to announce and did it just now. So what you stated below accurately reflects the realities there. And if you take into account that the Shiite majority lives in the most oil-bearing Saudi provinces .... laughing Saudi fat cats will also laugh at hiccups and colic.

          Having pulled troops into the interior of the country, the Saudis made a big mistake, the Hussites stretched them and now they systematically cut and burn everything in a row, Abramsa and all other armored vehicles were drumming them. On mountain serpentines, Saudis are generally beaten like babies, they are already starting to roll away from occupied areas. It is only a matter of time before the Saudis flee from there, their losses are heavy, especially in expensive armored vehicles.

            Run is a fact. Losses of course discourage them, but not so much in technology (their dough is like fool toys), and among the noble representatives of clan tribes.

    Something tells me that the Saudis will be tight. This is not to bomb, you really have to fight here. And the Hussites would like to wish good luck to the military.

    It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the invasion of the UAE and Saudi Arabia troops in Yemen occurred without any discussion of this step in the UN Security Council Probably Churkin will not miss this information, there will be a statement soon.

    But this is the worst scenario for the UAE. Yemenis are an unpleasant adversary, like Afghans. The officer corps studied with them in the USSR, there are enough Soviet weapons. They are fighting on their land. And most importantly, they consider themselves the descendants of an ancient culture, in contrast to the nomad Arabs. Well, in general, Arabs, especially the pampered UAE and Saudi Arabia, are still warriors. So 'smile and wave ...' wink

    As far as I know, they still keep their borders, gaining strength in the border territory of Yemen. There is no talk of any kind of offensive. This is a defensive element and a premonition of a protracted war.

    Very soon they will clear the country of the Hussites — such a statement attracts a war crime, the Hussites are not a couple of three gangs, but supporters of the recently expelled president, which means a significant part of the country's population.

    The armed forces of the Saudis and the UAE are armed with fairly modern weapons. But in terms of training, they are far from shining with high indicators, and the moral and psychological component is generally poor. So the results of this ground operation are far from straightforward.

    For the Yemenis, the Saudis are wild shepherds and upstarts, they remember that the biblical princess of Sheba is their countrywoman, and in the 6th century, Yemen was the Jewish kingdom.

    In general, Russia also does not actively resent, although it will chair the UN. The fate of the Hussites has apparently been resolved, they will be torn to pieces by the Saudis and the UAE. Nobody is going to intervene for them, however, if the Saudis and their allies are sucking, it is also unlikely that anyone will cry. Such is geopolitics

        We are silent because we do not care deeply about Yemen and the Hausites. For us, this war is interesting only in the opportunity to sell weapons to the warring parties. Ordinary economy, no double standards are needed here. Hausites are primarily a problem of Iran and the Saudis, the United States and Russia in this case simply "catches a profit."

    After reading all the comments, I understood only one thing: you did not understand the most important thing. The Saudis and their coalition would never have climbed into Yemen. Because the Husites supported Iran. And now they got into it, moreover, it’s open without any “vacationers.” Hence the conclusion: SA and Iran they could agree on something. Iran’s assignment is the Hussites. And where did the Saudis leave? I think Syria.
