Houthi fighters raided on August 21 several positions of the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies near the strategic Qays mount in the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan.

The Yemeni group’s media wing released a video showing the bodies of twelve Saudi-backed fighters, who were killed by the Houthis in the course of the attack.

The Houthis maintain a strong military presence in southern Jizan, especially east of the Qays mount. The Yemeni group’s fighters launch raids from their positions there on a regular basis.

Since the beginning of this year, the Houthis have stepped up their military activities in southern Saudi Arabia. Dozens of Saudi-backed fighters and Saudi soldiers were reportedly killed in the Yemeni group’s raids in the region.

The area of the oilfields and the border lands with Yemen are hone to the oppressed Shia population of saudi Arabia. It would be justice for the Shia to be able to engage in an uprising that cripples the brutal Saudi regime.

That time will come.

Report: Israel Planning to Attack Houthis in Yemen Sources say attack is part of ‘fight against Iran’ Jason Ditz Posted on August 22, 2019

“…The Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida is quoting “sources” familiar with the situation ho say that Israel is planning to start attacking targets in the Shi’ite Houthi movement in northern Yemen, as well as targets along the Straits of Bab el-Mandeb…”

Jason citing this Jerusalem Post article:

ISRAEL PLANS TO ATTACK THE HOUTHIS IN YEMEN – REPORT Sources say the Mossad and Military Intelligence are tracking Iranian shipments to organizations under its protection designed to hurt the interests of the region’s countries. BY MAARIV ONLINE AUGUST 22, 2019 13:57

“Israel’s fight against the shipment of weapons from Iran to organizations under its protection may reach new districts. Sources from the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida claim that Israel plans to attack targets of Houthi rebels and Hezbollah in Yemen, near the Straits of Bab-el-Mandeb separating the Red Sea from the Gulf of Aden. According to the source, the Mossad and Military Intelligence are monitoring Iran’s attempts to deliver weapons, including missiles and drones, which could be used for terrorist attacks against the region’s maritime network.

It has also been claimed that some of the drones and missiles were transferred to Iraq in an attempt to mislead the other party, and that the bombings attributed to Israel in the Arab country were intended to prevent the continuation of the route towards Yemen…”

I don’t see anything in the translated version of Al-Jarida, but the above articles only say “sources from…”. Note: many have long suspected that Israeli and U.S. pilots were secretly flying Saudi jets on strike missions in Yemen. The possibility that Israel would do it openly now in their own aircraft? I don’t know. They do have that rabid obsession with a Shia Holocaust and they did bomb those weapons depots in Iraq. Seems like bad PR, but they are already one of the most hated nations on earth – nothing to lose from that perspective. You would think that they would just pass target lists through their old reliable whore, CENTCOM, who then provides target lists to the Saudi and UAE Air Forces of Genocide. Either way, I say “Go for it!” I can think of nothing that would piss off Hezbollah more than an Israeli attack on Yemen, and we all know what that means.
