In the Middle East the Houthi-Iranian alliance continues to harass forces of the Saudi-Israeli-US bloc with renewed vigour.

On November 25, a Greek-managed oil tanker was damaged in an attack on a Saudi petroleum terminal located near the Red Sea city of Jeddah. Col. Turki Al-Malki, a spokesman for the coalition, said the tanker was hit by shrapnel resulting from an attack by the Yemeni Houthis using a water-born improvised explosive device. The spokesman claimed that the WBIED was intercepted. Nevertheless, the tanker’s operator, the Athens-based TMS Tankers, said the Maltese-flagged Agrari received a direct hit.

“The Agrari was struck about one meter above the waterline and has suffered a breach,” the company said in a statement. “It has been confirmed that the crew are safe and there have been no injuries. No pollution has been reported. The vessel is in ballast condition and stable.”

The Saudi Ministry of Energy said firefighters had extinguished a fire that had erupted after the attack. A spokesman for the ministry stressed that Aramco’s fuel supplies to its customers were not affected by the incident. At the same time, satellite images show a large oil spill off the shores of Jeddah’s terminal.

The Houthis (also known as Ansar Allah) have not claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the usage of WBIEDs by the movement was widely documented in the previous years of war.

Just a few days ago, on November 23, the Houthis struck a Saudi Aramco oil company distribution station near Jeddah with a Quds-2 cruise missile. According to the Yemeni movement, the missile was developed and produced by its Missile Forces. Nonetheless, the Houthi successes in missile and drone development during a total naval and air blockade would hardly be possible without Iranian help.

In these conditions, it is interesting to look at the timeframe of the Houthi strikes on Saudi Arabia. The movement says that its strikes on Saudi military and oil infrastructure are retaliatory actions to regular acts of Saudi aggression against Yemen, including airstrikes on civilian targets. Years after the ‘victorious’ Saudi intervention in Yemen, the Saudi-led coalition has still not been able to even reach the country’s capital. So, the Kingdom uses its air dominance to punish the Yemenis for their own setbacks on the battleground. However, it seems that there is one more factor motivating the Houthis. Both recent attacks on Saudi Arabia took place after Israeli strikes on Iranian-affiliated targets in Syria.

Here is the timeframe: On November 18, the Israeli Air Force struck the countryside of Damascus and the south of Syria. On November 23, a cruise missile hit the Saudi Aramco distribution station near Jeddah. Early on November 25, the Israeli military once again launched missiles at Iranian targets near Damascus and in the south. Later on the same day, a WBIED targeted a Saudi terminal off the Red Sea. The slightly delayed response to the November 18 strike could be explained by the fact that the Houthi-Iranian alliance needed a few days to prepare for the resumption of actions against Saudi targets, which were on a relative decrease in the preceding months due to the Houthi focus on the ground offensive in the Yemeni province of Marib and nearby areas. As to Iranian sources, they  are as expected denying any links between Israeli strikes on Syria and missiles, drones and WBIEDs  targetting Saudi Arabia.

At the same time, the Kingdom’s role as lamb to the slaughter in the ongoing regional standoff between Iranian-led forces and the Israeli-US bloc is not news to independent observers. Saudi Arabia predetermined its current position with its own launching of the failed military intervention in Yemen and by actively aligning itself with Israel in both public and clandestine dimensions.

    With every AnsarAllah Strike, comes a “Death to israel” shout. Just to remind them about their similar future.

      Hahaha – always “in the future”.

      I so far only can see the usual dieperjumping. At least You could shave Your behinds first.

        See how to win against evil. Iran is being very smart.

        They understand that since 1971 with the invention of the Zio Petro dollar, that Saudi Judea Arabia selling its oil for paper Zio dollars has been the source of the financial and economic strength of the Zio federal reserve and the Zio Petro dollar and the racist supremacist global Jewish Satanic slave empire dictatorship .

        The key to victory in any war by force of arms, economics or diplomacy, between the racist supremacist global Jewish Satanic slave empire dictatorship and the Goyim all of humanity they want enslave and oppress or exterminate is the destruction of the satanic Zio Jewish dictatorship government of Saudi Judea Arabia and therefore the Zio dollar

        This can be achieved without firing a shot. All that has to happen is for the government of Saudi Arabia to stop selling its oil for paper Zio dollars. Once this happens the Satanic Zio empire will collapse and retreat from Saudi Arabia and holy places like Mecca and Jerusalem, only then can the world be free of this Zio evil.

        All Goyim all of humanity must unite to achieve these goals. Only then will all the nations and peoples conquered and enslaved by the empire like the USSA the EU, Saudi Arabia etc, be free.

    A few years from now when the West will withdraw with its tail between its legs, the map of the MO will be redrawn, in addition to the Zionist occupier, the fake kingdoms of the gulf will also disappear, after all they are artificial creations of the Foreign Office in London and maintained in life from the Yankee occupier, they have had their day and without Western support they will not be able to stand for more than a few days.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      Hahahaha.

      Very bad to decline to Your levell.

    2. The Objective says:

      Of course that has always been the secret Shiite plot – to take control of the Muslim world by taking mecca and madina. But you are in for a surprise. You aren’t facing Saudi Arabia but the Entire Sunni Muslim world. We won’t fight to protect the Saudi monarchy, but we’ll fight to prevent mecca and madinah falling in your hands.

      1. Joaquin says:

        But you don’t fight to free them from wahhabi curse?

        1. The Objective says:

          The wahhabis are a less serious threat to the Sunni Muslim world. Most Muslims don’t subscribe to Saudi Arabia’s wahhabism or Salafism. But a Shiite control of the Muslim world is totally unacceptable. In regional war is far better than any peace with Shiites controlling Islam’s holy site.

          If the Saudis are unable to protect the two holy sites, other Muslim countries will step in. Iran and its evil Shiite armies should know that the fact the rest of the Sunni Muslim world is inactive in the Muslim world does not mean the Saudi monarchy is the only obstacle they face towards this mission.

          Any attempt to seize the Hezaj will spark a regional war that no Shiite militia will survive. The devils have mostly being the ones to lit the fires of war throughout Islamic history. But Allah has always denied them victory over Islam. Fire-worshipers disguising as lovers of the prophet’s household.

          1. Ishyrion Av says:

            The way sunni fights, with suicide bombers when they have a lack of drones and aircrafts would lead to a quick defeat against armed forces like Iran or militias like Hezbollah.
            Check the Yemen if you don’t believe that.
            Too bad Iran is not really interested in your mecca and medina. It would be a quite interesting event to see them falling in the Shiia hands.

          2. The Objective says:

            You mistake the Sunni Muslim world for Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E, and other Arab countries? Arabs make up less than 15% of the global Sunni Muslim population. You think your militias will defeat countries like Turkey, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia etc.? You think your Hezbollah or IRGC will defeat the Taliban?
            Don’t forget, Sunnis not Shiites brought the Persian empire to its knees. Don’t let the mouthiness of your generals deceive you as to your strength compared to others.

          3. Ishyrion Av says:

            Yeah, they brought it to its knees and the Persians revenged by creating Shiia. And now you, muslims, are in deeper sh.t.

          4. The Objective says:

            No, we are not in deeper shit. The worst period for the Middle East and a couple other countries was in the few years after 9/11. The U.S now has turned it attention on Shiites and the Persians. It is the Shiites that are in trouble right now, not Sunnis. What I worry about is just the domino effect of this conflict on Sunnis of the region.

          5. Ishyrion Av says:

            If you think US or Israel will solve the Shiia-Sunni problem, you are a dreamer. Perhaps you heard about latin sentence ”divide et impera”.

          6. The Objective says:

            The U.S has no interest to solve the Shiite – Sunni rift. In fact, it would like to encourage it. But the problem is that the Shiites are a major threat to the U.S. they threaten the very existence of U.S-allied regimes of the gulf, including Israel. That’s why they cannot be ignored. Not that I care.

          7. Joaquin says:

            Thanks for taking the time to answer.

            Now may I ask you why you think that a shiite rule over Hejaz would be worse than a wahhabi one? I’m foreing to that region and I want to hear different perspectives. Thanks

          8. The Objective says:

            This has to do with the Question of whether Shiism is Islam at all. I need to mention somethings about the Shiites you should know before answering your question. I’ll also provide a link to an authentic source that comprehensively explains the Shiite-Sunni struggle which dates back more than 1000 years ago, and which just became more intense in our time.
            Important points to note:
            1. Not all Shiites are aware of their beliefs, especially those born to Shiite families. These are not considered non-Muslims. Because since they aren’t aware of those horrific beliefs, they can’t be said to agree with such beliefs.
            2. Until recently, Shiites have always been a pathetic minority among Muslims throughout Islamic history, making less than 5% of the total Muslim population. It’s just of recent that this number grew to about 10% now.
            3. Shiites have never recognized any of the Sunni Khaliphates except for that of Ali (r.a) and his children (May Allah mercy be upon them). They have always rebelled both violently and passively against Sunni rule and secretly seek to take control of the Muslim world by controlling Islam’s holy sites.

            Now I’ll delve into your question proper
            The Hejaz is the most important sacred place for Islam and Muslims, plus Jerusalem. Anyone who controls the Hejaz ends up wielding tremendous influence in the Muslim world.
            Saudi wahhabis and salafists have their own horrific ideas too that many Sunnis cannot accept (like their perceived proposition to abolish the four schools of thought). But this idea does not negate one’s Islam. Terrorism is also frowned upon by traditional Muslims and I don’t know of any Salafists ideology that supports suicide bombing or killing people over disagreements in faith. If you know of such, I’ll appreciate you telling me.

            Shiism on the other hand is an entirely different ballgame. It wouldn’t be a problem to support them if they had beliefs that do not negate a Muslim’s Islam. Even if they had been innovators, Muslims would have supported them over America and Israel if they didn’t have such horrific beliefs about the Sahabas apostatizing, Qur’an being corrupted, etc. These believes immediately makes one a non-Muslim even if they claim otherwise. I won’t go deep into this matter. But here is a link to a source that describes everything you should know to understand why for any learned Sunni Muslim, Wahhabi control of the Hejaz is far far better than any Shiite alternative.

            In a nutshell, the reason we’ll rather have Wahhabis than Shiites controlling the Hejaz is that the Shiite creed (considered apostasy by all prominent Sunni scholars throughout history) will give Iran unrivaled influence over the Muslim world. Shiism will spread like forest fire, misguiding millions within a short time. That will also lead to region-wide wars between Shiites and Sunnis as many Sunnis will wage a constant struggle to liberate it (and with the support of the global Sunni community). It’ll be a bloodbath on a scale never seen before.

            I hope I did answer your question or at least partially did.

          9. Joaquin says:

            Thank you very much.
            Now I have quite a lot of information on which to investigate.
            Good health to you man. Cheers

          10. The Objective says:

            You’re welcome. I’m always happy to contribute to your understanding of the Muslim world wherever I can.

        2. The Objective says:

          That’s what the Muslim brotherhood is doing, but I think they approach it wrongly. They should seek to cooperate with the monarchies instead of this bloodshed. All the monarchies want is regime security. As long as the MB can guarantee that they won’t support any move to topple the monarchies, there won’t be such tension between them as we are seeing now.

  3. Jens Holm says:

    Saudis are not victims. They are very affiliated to west just as Israel is.

    So here there is a risk.

  4. Frank says:

    Frankly, Saudi Arabia is a victim of its own stupidity.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      I see no stupidity. I wonder what You have learned is cleve/bright ????

      1. Look at your mirror, monkey. You’ll see something extremely stupid there….

      babling barking madness. If You were a dog here, You were shot…

      1. “babling barking madness” pretty much describing your every comment: illiterate and retarded babbling barking madness to be more precise.
        You are not a dog, you’re a bitch. Pity you’re not a mink tho… but then, minks are infinitely more intelligent and more worthy than you.

  6. Uri says:

    That typical Kremlin BS, Houthis are fighting the Saudis, financed by Iran but it would be illogical to pretend that they bunch of illiterates khat chewing that don’t know even where Israel would attack Saudi because Israeli’s sanitation operation on Syria, Saudi don’t have even diplomatic relationship or even Israel weapons.

    While Israel attacked In November 18 was against Iranian Quds Force Unit 840 which planted this IED on the Israel-Syria border.
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6c8831fc8813f695425726cb707898c02931843756e6bc84ec94384d263a6806.jpg

    So IRGC plants a IED and their Unit 840 headquarters was destroyed as warning, without any BS about Yemen, simple Newton’s third law of motion, action and reaction.

  7. verner says:

    the jews in palestine are doomed, despite their much hailed ‘iron dome’ which soon will be the iron dooooooom’. the reason is that support for the war criminals and just plain criminals and corrupt jews in palestine will stop, the transfer of large sums of money from jews in diaspora around the world will be stopped, forbidden – just like cash transfers to ISIS is forbidden – and that will cause the end of the illegal occupation of palestine the jews have maintained for more than 100 years, fortunately.

    it’s untenable that a bunch of war criminals, the jews in palestine,

    – get away with flagrant genocide of the palestinians,

    – get away with operating concentration camp Gaza,

    – get away with the theft of all valuable land belonging to the palestinians, and

    – stealing the natural gas under the palestinian seabed and

    – get away with attacking the neighbouring countries regularly killing civilans, women and children and

    – get away with and accusing Iran of being hostile against the jews in palestine.

    in fact it is good to see that at least one country in the world has taken a stand against the criminals in palestine and the world needs to join Iran in the work to clear the middle east of all jews, those in palestine, those embedded in syria, in iraq in turkey and in iran and so on.

    they need to be gone asap.
