Yemeni Resistance Deals Heavy Blow To Aggressors: 16 Drones, Ballistic Missiles Target Saudi Depth

Yemeni Resistance Deals Heavy Blow To Aggressors: 16 Drones, Ballistic Missiles Target Saudi Depth

By Staff, Agencies

In yet another heroic achievement scored against the Saudi aggressors, the Yemeni resistance, represented by the Armed Forces, used 16 drones and ballistic missiles to hit targets deep inside Saudi Arabia in their latest operation, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yehya Saree announced.

“As part of confronting the crimes of [the Saudi-led] aggression against our country, our Armed Forces carried out the 7th Operation Balanced Deterrence, targeting vital facilities and military bases of the Saudi enemy,” Brigadier General Saree said in a televised statement on Sunday.

Saree explained that the operation targeted vital installations and military bases of Saudi Arabia, including Saudi Aramco facilities in Jeddah, Jizan and Najran regions, which he said were bombed with five Badr ballistic missiles and two Sammad-3 drones.

He added that Saudi Aramco facilities in Ras al-Tanura in the Dammam region, eastern Saudi Arabia, were also targeted with eight Sammad-3 drones and a Zulfiqar ballistic missile.

The spokesman stressed that Yemeni forces successfully hit their targets in both attacks.

In a statement on Saturday, Riyadh claimed that its air defenses had intercepted and destroyed three ballistic missiles and three explosive-laden drones launched towards Dammam, Jizan and Najran regions.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2015, when Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a devastating war against the poorest Middle Eastern country to reinstall Yemen’s overthrown government of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in Sanaa and crush the Ansarullah resistance movement.

The war, accompanied by a tight siege, has failed to reach its goals and killed hundreds of thousands of Yemeni people, putting millions more at risk of starvation by destroying much of the country’s infrastructure.

The new operation came after the Yemeni Armed Forces repeatedly warned Saudi Arabia to stop the war and siege against the country or face larger and more extensive operations.

The Yemeni forces have stepped up their retaliatory attacks deep inside Saudi Arabia in recent months.

In his Sunday remarks, Saree said the new operation succeeded in achieving its goals, warning Saudi Arabia of the consequences of its continued military campaign against the Yemeni people.

He underlined that Yemen is entitled to carry out more military operations to defend itself and its people until the war and siege against the country come to an end.

“The Yemeni Armed Forces will continue their jihadist battle until the liberation of all the lands of the republic and the achievement of freedom and independence,” Saree affirmed.

Last month, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths said that about 5 million Yemenis are “just one step away” from succumbing to famine and related diseases.

“Ten million more are right behind them,” Griffiths warned.

According to Henrietta Fore, the executive director of UNICEF, one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen from preventable causes, including malnutrition and vaccine-preventable diseases, which are the ramifications of the war on Yemen.

In another development, the spokesman for Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement affirmed the Yemeni people’s right to defend themselves so long as Saudi Arabia insists on continuing the war.

“Just as they insist on continuing their aggression and siege, our Yemeni people continue to defend themselves,” Mohammed Abdul-Salam tweeted on Sunday.

The latest operation against Saudi Arabia coincided with the liberation of the southern district of Rahba district by the Yemeni Army and allied popular committees, he said.

A security official in Marib Province told Yemen News Agency [SABA] that all the residents of Rahba can return to their homes and farms and practice their normal lives after the district was completely secured by Yemeni forces.

By Staff, Agencies

The Yemeni Military Media released on Thursday scenes of a major offensive against Saudi mercenaries on the outskirts of Al-Doud Mountain close to the kingdom’s southwestern region of Jizan.

The Army and the Popular Committees carried out a military operation against Saudi-backed militants, mercenaries from Sudan, deployed in the axes of Al-Madafin and Al-Mlahidh, which culminated in the control of several sites, killing, wounding and capturing Saudi-paid Sudanese mercenaries.

The Army and the Popular Committees conducted the offensive on two fronts, and they managed to establish control over a number of districts and inflict material and human losses on enemy forces in the process.

They destroyed four vehicles belonging to Saudi-backed militants, burned their camps and barricades, seized various weapons, and captured a number of Sudanese mercenaries.

The scenes documented by the military media lens also showed the moments of the Yemeni Army advancing to enemy positions and storming them.

The scenes also showed the Army and Popular Committees chasing the fleeing Sudanese mercenaries between valleys and hills, capturing a number of them.

In conjunction with the implementation of the operation, the US-Saudi aggression aircraft tried to support its mercenaries with a number of raids to stop the progress of the Army and Popular Committees, but to no avail.

Yemeni army releases pictures of Saudi troops, Sudanese mercs captured during Jizan operation

By VT Editors -June 15, 2021

This picture released by the media bureau of Yemen’s Operations Command Center on June 14, 2021 shows some Saudi troops and Sudanese mercenaries captured during a recent operation in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan.

The media bureau of Yemen’s Operations Command Center has published the pictures and interviews of a number of Saudi troops and Sudanese mercenaries captured during a recent operation in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan region, with an eye to swapping them with Yemeni prisoners held by the Saudi-led coalition forces.

Press TV: In their confessions broadcast on Yemen’s al-Masirah television, the captives identified themselves, and talked about military units they were affiliated with.

They said they were being treated humanely at the hands of the Yemeni Armed Forces and fighters from Popular Committees, and assured their families that they were in good health.Spokesman: Yemeni forces’ drone carried out new attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abha Intl. Airport

The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces says army troops have carried out a retaliatory drone strike against Saudi Arabia’s Abha International Airport.

They also appealed to Saudi authorities to secure their freedom, describing the Saudi-led military campaign against Yemen as “unjust and unreasonable.”

They were captured after Yemeni troops and fighters from allied Popular Committees carried out a major military operation in Saudi Arabia’s strategic Jizan region over the past few days, establishing control over many military sites.

Dozens of Saudi army troops, Sudanese mercenaries and Saudi-sponsored militiamen loyal to Yemen’s former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi were either killed or captured in the process, and large quantities of munitions and military equipment were seized from them.

A military source said Yemeni army forces wrested control over MBC mountains, in addition to Tabab al-Fadhia, al-Tabba al-Bayda, al-Qambora, al-Amoud, Tawaleq and Eastern Qa’im Sayab areas during the multi-pronged operation.

The source said more than 80 Saudi army troops and Sudanese mercenaries were killed in the offensives, while 29 military vehicles were destroyed and set on fire.Saudis seek ‘face-saving way out’ of their ‘unwinnable war’ on Yemen: ICG

Richard Atwood, the interim head of the International Crisis Group, says Riyadh’s war against Yemen “generates fury” toward the Saudi rulers.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing Hadi’s government back to power and crushing popular Ansarullah movement.

Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have, however, gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.

The Saudi war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. The war has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the Arab country.

معادلة القدس تفجّر حرباً إقليميّة تشغل واشنطن

03/062021

 ناصر قنديل

فيما انصرف كيان الاحتلال والجوقات العربية واللبنانية المناوئة للمقاومة، لتعميم الشائعات عن صحة الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله أملاً بطمس المضامين الفعلية للمعادلة التي أطلقها في إطلالته النوعيّة في ذكرى عيد المقاومة والتحرير، وحدَها واشنطن فهمت بعمق معنى الكلام الذي قاله الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله، عن أن معادلة المرحلة المقبلة هي “القدس تساوي حرباً إقليميّة”، فانصرفت تتعامل مع المعادلة وكيفية الحؤول دون وضعها قيد التطبيق، بعدما أثبتت حرب غزة بما حملت من وقائع كشفت هشاشة كيان الاحتلال، وخطورة انهياره إذا ما بلغت الأمور حدّ تطبيق معادلة السيد نصرالله، وأدركت واشنطن أنها معادلة للتنفيذ وليست مجرد شعار، لأنها تابعت عن كثب ما كان يجري خلال حرب غزة من تحضيرات وما رافق تطوّراتها من قرارات، وعملت بموجب هذه المتابعة على تسريع الوصول لوقف النار منعاً لوقوع الأسوأ على كيان الاحتلال.

بعد نجاح التوصل لوقف النار في غزة، وضعت واشنطن أمامها ثلاثة ملفات تتصل بالمعادلة الجديدة، الملف الأول في الكيان وخطر قيام رئيس حكومته بنيامين نتنياهو بارتكاب حماقة تؤدي الى الانزلاق الى هذه الحرب؛ والثاني في اليمن وخطورة أن يكون محور المقاومة قد أعدّ اليمن ليكون مع لبنان شركاء المرحلة الأولى من تطبيق هذه المعادلة، في حال وضعت قيد التطبيق؛ أما الملف الثالث فيتصل بإيران التي تشكل عمق محور المقاومة، وثقله الاستراتيجي، انطلاقاً من أن بين إيران وكيان الاحتلال حساباً مفتوحاً، سيجد فرصة تصفيته في حال طبقت معادلة السيد نصرالله، إضافة لما لدى إيران من اسباب عقائدية واستراتيجية تجعلها تنظر للحظة الحرب الإقليمية تحت عنوان القدس فرصة تاريخية لا تفوّت.

في الملف الأول المتصل بوضع الكيان، سارعت واشنطن الى إيفاد وزير خارجيتها الى المنطقة وخصوصاً لاستطلاع الوضع في الكيان، وتقدير الموقف، وكانت الحصيلة تقول إن بقاء بنيامين نتنياهو على رأس الحكومة يعادل خطر نشوب حرب إقليمية لثلاثة أسباب، الأول أنه يجد هذه الحرب فرصة لتوريط واشنطن في مواجهة مع إيران ومحور المقاومة عندما يبدو أن الكيان يواجه خطراً وجودياً لا تكفي لتلافيه إمدادات السلاح الأميركي، وهو بذلك يترجم احتجاجه على السياسات الأميركية الذاهبة الى العودة للاتفاق النووي مع إيران، الثاني أن نتنياهو يسير وراء المستوطنين والمتطرفين ويعتبرهم القوة الحيوية الوحيدة التي تضمن له تفوقاً انتخابياً، وهو ليس على استعداد لممارسة أي جهد لضبطهم وكبح جماح عدوانيتهم على الفلسطينيين، خصوصاً في القدس ما يجعل خطر الانفجار وشيكاً، خصوصاً أن الملفات الشخصية لنتنياهو المتصلة بالفساد وخطر السجن والمحاكمة تجعله أسير حسابات ضيقة يتقدمها بقاؤه على رأس الحكومة مهما كان الثمن، والسبب الثالث أن نتنياهو المثقل بتاريخه السياسي الرافض لأية تسوية ليس رئيس الحكومة المناسب لترجمة مشروع واشنطن بتمييع الصراع حول فلسطين عبر نظرية التفاوض للتفاوض، فهوامشه محدودة للمناورة لو أراد التعاون، وحجم المطلوب منه كثير فلسطينياً وعربياً ليكون للتفاوض بعض مصداقيّة، مهما كانت سقوف المعنيين العرب والفلسطينيين بخيار التفاوض للتفاوض منخفضة، بينما أي رئيس حكومة بلا تاريخ نتنياهو يكفي أن يرتضي التفاوض بلا شروط مسبقة حتى يكون ممكناً فتح الطريق لسحب فتيل التصعيد ولو لفترة.

في الملف اليمنيّ برز تطوران، الأول كلام السيد عبد الملك الحوثي زعيم حركة أنصار الله، الذي أعلن التزام أنصار الله واليمن بمعادلة السيد نصرالله حول القدس والحرب الإقليميّة، والثاني هو حجم التفوّق الميداني الذي يظهره أنصار الله ومعهم الجيش واللجان في كل المعارك التي تدور على جبهة مأرب وجبهة الحدود السعودية في جيزان، وفي القدرة على مواصلة تهديد العمق السعوديّ بالطائرات المسيّرة والصواريخ، وللمرة الأولى تحرك الأميركيون على مسارات السعي لوقف النار بطريقة مختلفة، فوضعوا مشروعاً يحاول محاكاة مطالب أنصار الله بربط وقف النار بفكّ الحصار، وبالرغم من عدم تلبية المقترحات الأميركيّة لما يطلبه أنصار الله، والتحفظات السعوديّة على الطرح الأميركي، فإن واشنطن تبدو عازمة على فعل ما تستطيع لتفادي استمرار التصعيد على جبهة اليمن، وفتح الباب للتفاوض السياسي، لاعتقادها بأن وقف الحرب يخفف من مخاطر انخراط اليمن في حرب إقليمية إذا توافرت شروط معادلة السيد نصرالله لها.

في الملف الإيراني، حملت مفاوضات فيينا تطوّرات هامة من الجانب الأميركي، ترجمتها تصريحات البيت الأبيض التي يقرأ فيها التمهيد السياسي والإعلامي للإعلان عن التوصل للاتفاق في الجولة المقبلة للتفاوض، والحساب الأميركي يقوم على الاعتقاد بأن العودة الى الاتفاق النووي ورفع العقوبات الأميركية كنتيجة لذلك، ستخلق مناخاً يعقد انخراط إيران في أية حرب إقليميّة، ويفتح الباب لأصوات تدعو للتريّث ما يمنح واشنطن في أية ظروف مشابهة متوقعة الحدوث هامش وقت أوسع للتحرك لوقف التدهور الذي يفتح باب الحرب الإقليمية.

النصف الأول من حزيران سيشهد تطوّرات في الملفات الثلاثة، بحكومة تقصي نتنياهو في الكيان، والمضي قدماً في مساعي تقديم مقترحات لوقف النار في اليمن، وتسريع العودة للاتفاق النوويّ، ومحور المقاومة سيقطف ثمار هذه التحوّلات، ضعفاً وانشقاقاً في الكيان وانتصاراً في اليمن وإيران، لكن المعادلة باقية لا تتزحزح، لا تمزحوا في القدس، فالحرب الإقليميّة وراء الباب.

The Failed Saudi War

The Failed Saudi War

By Ahmed Fouad

Throughout history – from the ancient empires and the priests of the pharaohs, to modern times, via pictures and screens – countries and regimes worldwide have been striving to justify the wars they wage and give various reasons for resorting to arms, as well as, trying to mark every single fault of their enemy, giving their soldiers and officials the grounds for heroism.

Inside and outside Yemen, the hopeless Saudi-American war is marching towards its sixth year, with an unprecedented intention to a bloody failure and complete fall. Saudi Arabia and its allies are increasing their craziness, trying to divert attention from the crimes against humanity by committing more horrible crimes. The pretext here is: national security, the concept that Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and Cairo are always hanging on to. They are all fighting Yemenis to protect their national security while they are groveling to Netanyahu! The war against Yemen is the same as any war that happened in history; not more than leaders seeking a “monumental” and peerless military achievement that would legitimize their victory. During a historical crisis that all Arabic regimes are experiencing, the Zionist entity became their friend, ally and brother, in the face of people who are materially the poorest in the Arab Region and Arabian Peninsula.

Starting with the western media, the American primarily and the European secondly, Gulf regimes fought the first battle, led by bin Zayed and bin Salman, to buy consciences and stances, succeeding to make the war against Yemen tenable through the world. It wasn’t harder in the Arab World as Qatar joined them with its channels at the beginning of the war, then it encouraged other countries such as Egypt and Sudan to join the alliance.

At the beginning of the war, more than 5 years ago, all stances were ready to be sold, and the money of Al Saud and Al Zayed was ready to buy them. They succeeded to mark their missiles, tanks and warships by “morality” and direct them towards a defenseless nation.

The leadership of the aggression alliance achieved what appeared to be the media victory, in the inauguration of its military campaign against Yemen. All voices that had been opposing the war were silent, or silenced.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates tried so hard to conceal their intervention in Yemen using the moral cover in a region which, looking at everyone and everything in it, seems like a slaughterhouse. No matter how much they might try to beautify themselves, they will never seem peaceful. As it proceeded, the war continued to exhaust the capacity of the two states, which everyone thought endless.

As the years went by, Saudi Arabia squandered its affluent treasury, including the wealth and capacities, for the sake of the alliance and the Arab fascist regimes, and it didn’t stop squandering in the fear of a remarkable Yemeni victory that would firstly deprive it from the opportunity of enthroning the heir presumptive; secondly give Yemen the opportunity of looking at historical demands concerning regions that the Yemenis consider to be unfairly taken from them in earlier stages; and most significantly, grant Yemen the ability to demonstrate its powerful model that just beat all the Gulf states.

The Saudi treasury, that today seems to be in miserable conditions, is deepening the woes of Al Saud. Just before the war against Yemen, at the end of 2014, all the external debts owed by the SA were around $12 billion, worth nothing for the world’s richest state.

Only 5 years later, these debts increased by 1400%, according to data from the World Bank, which unmasked a record high in the debts owed by Saudi Arabia that reached $150 billion in 2018, then $183 billion at the end of 2019, and it goes on and on. It is the Yemeni victory, not the defeat of Saudi Arabia that would haunt rulers in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi.

As the war progressed, the Gulf media failed, in parallel with the military failure, to continue marshalling opinions that convict Yemenis and their armed forces. The available pictures of mass destruction in Yemen shows the scale of the Arab crime, whether by contributing or staying silent. International actors finally started to draw attention by sharing chilling reports about the humanitarian situation in all Yemeni regions. Nothing could be more evident than the UNICEF’s report concerning the disaster, as it says that “Every single hour, a mother and 6 children are killed throughout Yemen, and because of the maritime and airborne barbaric blockades of Yemen by the alliance, health services have completely collapsed, and it is difficult to obtain medical supplies or buy and import medicine and equipment!”

Since the war has been prolonged, it is obviously an end in itself. It uses the importation of arms, in a region that doesn’t fear any external or internal threats, as a large door for commissions and enormous profits. And with the drain of the war, all Gulf people’s properties became under the control of Western arms furnishers. The treason is now completed. On the economic side: the war caused the waste of enormous opportunities in an era where petroleum is missing its decisive influence and its incomes are declining, and on the social side: the abundant arms like a sword hanging over the heads of those who refuse to be loyal to furnishers, or think outside the box to which they are supposed to stick.

Only now, all imaginations that anyone could control Yemen over have become a well-established fact, more than being a future expectation. Today, everyone knows and conceives that the end will not be in Sanaa or Aden; but the beginning of the end will be in Jizan and Najran, and the absolute end will be in Riyadh.

Hundreds of Sudanese Troops Enter Saudi Arabia Heading to Yemen: Report

Hundreds of Sudanese Troops Enter Saudi Arabia Heading to Yemen: Report

By Staff, Agencies

Hundreds of Sudanese forces have reportedly entered Saudi Arabia en route to Yemen contrary to an earlier announcement by the North African country about a drawdown of its personnel in the bloody Saudi war on the poorest Arabian Peninsula nation.

Citing private Saudi sources, the Middle East Eye news portal [MEE] reported on Friday that 1,018 Sudanese army officers and soldiers arrived in Saudi Arabia by boat on September 22 after passing through passport control in the southwestern city of Jizan.

Two Sudanese planes also carried Sudanese military personnel from Khartoum to Saudi Arabia’s Najran airport the day before, according to one of the sources, who was speaking on condition of anonymity.

The first plane held 123 passengers and the second 128, the source said, adding that both planes later departed for Khartoum.

“The planes brought Sudanese officers and soldiers to take part in Operation Restoring Hope,” the source said, using the name that Saudi Arabia gave to its devastating military aggression against Yemen.

The fresh deployment came despite an announcement by the Sudanese military in January that it was winding down its presence in Yemen from around 5,000 mercenaries to a “minor” group of some 650.

Brigadier General Jamal Adam, a spokesman for the Rapid Support Forces [RSF] paramilitary, told Turkey’s Anadolu news agency that the Sudanese forces present in Yemen “were operating within two sections, the [United Arab] Emirates sector inside Aden, and the Saudi sector that extends on the Saudi-Yemeni border.”

In December 2019, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok said the number of the Sudanese mercenaries had been reduced to 5,000 from 15,000.

He said his government had “inherited” the deployment in Yemen from Sudan’s former president, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, who was ousted following a popular uprising against his rule in April 2019.

Earlier reports said child soldiers from Sudan’s Darfur have been fighting on behalf of Saudi Arabia and its allies in the frontline of the Yemen war, with money being their only motive.

Houthis Released New Video Of Their Successful Operations On Saudi Border (Videos 18+)

Source

08.07.2020

The Houthis are actively conducting defensive and offensive operations against Saudi-backed forces along the border with Saudi Arabia’s southern region.

On July 7, the Yemeni group’s fighters foiled an infiltration attempt by Saudi-backed fighters in Qays Mount on the border with the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan. The infiltrators were caught in an ambush set by Houthi snipers. At least two were killed and several others were injured in the failed infiltration attempt.

A day later, the Houthis raided positions of Saudi-backed forces in Murab’a al-Hamad near the province of Najran, east of Jizan. The Yemeni group’s fighters targeted the positions with recoilless guns and sniper rifles before storming them. During the raid, the Houthis destroyed an ammo depot of Saudi-backed forces.

The Houthis have been controlling a large strip of the border line with Saudi Arabia since the out break of the war in 2015. The Yemen group even succeeds to capture very small pockets within the Kingdom’s territory from time to time.

The Saudi-led coalition and its Yemen proxies failed to push the Houthis away from the border, despite their superior fire power. The Houthis’ better understanding of the border’s terrain and their excellent training is giving them a serious advantage.
