Militants attacked Yemen Army checkpoints

In the area of ​​the port of Al-Mukallah, the forces associated with Al-Qaida and the so-called Islamic State are great. Officials claim that the terrorists were probably attacked by one of these groups.

Recall that in Yemen, which year has been continuing armed confrontation between the forces of the government army, Hussites and al-Qaeda militants. The country is actually divided into clan zones of influence, which leads to the development of a situation similar to the Libyan one. In the Yemeni conflict, the army of Saudi Arabia and some other countries in the region takes an active part, announcing the creation of a coalition "to establish stability." The only thing that is stable in Yemen is the fighting and terrorist attacks that take lives.

          ANY conflict on the planets in the end turns into a battle for Russia. so Yemen is important even on its own. and if you consider that the Saudis got stuck there, it is doubly important.

    For most countries in the Middle East and North Africa, including Yemen, religious issues in conflicts are in most cases decisive. This is especially true of extremist movements: Wahhabis, Sufis, Salafists and others. Although, of course, economic (energy) interests are often hidden under a sauce of religious subjects.

    4 comments in the article. I don't give a damn about Yemen! So many events are happening in the world today that some Yemen is something so small and insignificant that it’s just - nothing at all

    We will remind that in Yemen for many years there has been an armed confrontation between the forces of the government army, the Houthis and al-Qaeda militants.

    Not so simple. T.N. The "Houthis" are simply a PR label glued by the democratic media to a group opposing the current leadership of the country, which is based on the former forces of the government army.
    This was done by the PMSM in order to present to the Western viewer the civil war in Yemen as a struggle of a radical religious group against the legitimate government. That's just the trouble, sadness ... now the media have to dodge as if in a frying pan in order to combine in one paragraph "a radical religious group" and "struck with ballistic missiles."

    Actually, the Yemenis abundantly use the P-15 Termit anti-ship missiles. 16 launches - 12 targets hit. The Baiunun’s ultra-struck Emirate corvette.
