Saudi coalition promotes capture of new cities by al-Qaeda militants in Yemen

19
With each new day of the operation of the so-called Saudi coalition in Yemen, all large areas of this country come under the control of militant groups associated with al-Qaeda. On the eve of the militants, representing one of the branches of the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda, took control of the city of Azzan, located in the south of Yemen. It should be noted that Al-Qaeda held the city of Azzan under its control in 2011, then Al-Qaeda militants drove the Houthite troops out of the village, which the so-called Saudi coalition opposes.


Hussites are a movement of Yemeni rebels who are loyal to the country's ex-president Saleh. On their side of the conflict in the territory of Yemen, and part of the army of Yemen, not sworn allegiance to the new authorities. Another part of the army opposes the Hussites, in effect giving Al Qaeda the opportunity, with the support of Riyadh, to occupy more and more territories in Yemen.

For a long time, the Hussites kept the city under their control, but as soon as the intensity of the military actions undertaken by the Saudis in the south of Yemen increased, Al-Qaida decided to carry out an attempt to retake Azzan from the Hussites. On the eve they managed to take control of all the administrative buildings in the city and set up their checkpoints at several entrances to the city at once. It is reported news agency Associated Press with reference to sources in the Yemeni armed forces.

    Hmm. The enemy does not sleep. The third force has always been, is and will be. While the two sides sort things out, the third one takes on valuable things and even incites the parties to the conflict. This is all profitable.

        Still there was not enough to get involved. The Syrian conflict would be sorted out soon. And without loss.

        How can I not support MIKHAN. Indeed, SA and Qatar, in addition to their grave sins, deserve only carpet bombing. But this time has not come yet. International politics is a serious matter.

        I am for the Hussites. Not angels of course, but better than al-Qaeda and CA. They learned from Suvorov’s campaign how to make transitions with artillery in the mountains.

        From the latest reports from the Yemen Front
        29 January The Yemeni armed forces and the Ansar Allah People's Committees have established control over three bases of Jebel al-Dud, al-Aril and Madba in the Saudi province of Jizan. At the same time, three frigates were attacked by the militia and the army near the town of Moha. As a result, one was destroyed, two retreated.

        30 January in Sana'a, tens of thousands of people protested against the invasion of the Saudi coalition in Yemen. Protesters burned the US flag as they assist the coalition in the fight.

        31 January More than 200 Sudanese soldiers were killed when a ballistic missile hit the Al-Anad military base in Lahj province, launched by Ansar Allah militia with the support of the Yemeni army. Saudi coalition soldiers at this base were preparing to take Taiz. There are also Saudi soldiers and mercenaries loyal to Mansur Hadi among the dead.

          Here's a new one:
          Yemeni rebels fired more than 70 missiles and mortar shells at the military bases of Al-Qawiyah and Jbal Al-Dohan in the Saudi province of Jizan. Representatives of the Yemen Revolutionary Committee report that several dozen military personnel have died.

          In the province of Asir, several military training camps in the Al-Rabua area were shelled. However, data on the number of killed and wounded soldiers of the kingdom are currently missing.

          In Najran, the Hussites rocketed a military base in the Al-Shurf region in the west of the province. It is reported that at least four Saudi servicemen were killed.

          Representatives of the Revolutionary Committee also reported on achievements in Yemen in the province of Marib. The rebels managed to destroy the convoy with military equipment in the east of the province. It is noted that one of the key officers of the Gulf coalition armed forces was liquidated. However, his name was not disclosed.

          In addition, supporters of Abdel-Malik Husi prevented a counter-offensive in the Al-Jadan, Marib region. As a result of fierce skirmishes, Ahmad Al-Dudehi, the commander of the second battalion of the 314th division of the armed forces of Saudi Arabia, was killed.

    It seems to me that no one can predict the completion of the scenario of the entire Middle East tangle of events! Everything is too unpredictable there ... recourse

    Eternal hell to the states for disturbing the Middle East. People lived peacefully, got along well - no need to stick in, destroy everything. And behind all this is small Britain. To fall into her deeper.

    We do not have enough good meanness in our actions, but it is a pity that the partners do not disdain this.

    Well, there is restless in Aden.

    In the battles between AQAP and ISIS, Sudanese fell under the distribution - they burned their convoy (3-4 truck + jeeps).
    The IS attempted to storm the presidential palace, but security from the UAE was able to blow up the Shahidgruzovik on the road and repel the attack.
    AQAP occupies quarter after quarter in Aden. Local authorities cannot do anything. The only stopper to capture at least 3 districts of Aden is where AQAP and the broads sympathize with the Caliphate. They are now chopped there for every street.

    You’re giving a civil war in Saudi Arabia and Qatar! So that all of your oil ends tomorrow, so that the wells are destroyed by earth-friction!

      It’s hard to imagine a civil war there. They live according to Sharia law and every day someone’s head is cut publicly, while, according to the American classification, they are not considered dictatorial regimes.
      But if, to strike a massive blow at the "manarchy" and the oil field infrastructure, then yes - tomorrow oil would be 100 and terrorists of all stripes would be deprived of financial support and weapons.
      Bringing peace to BV is quite simple, but incredibly difficult (pun intended).

    The Saudis think that the Ishilovites will not get them wrong

      They'll get there. They constantly reach the Saudis with an outstretched hand and the words "apply for the continuation of the war."
