On August 4, the Houthis ambushed a large unit of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies in the outskirt of the district center of al-Durayhimi along the western coast of Yemen, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV.

The Houthis’ media wing said that Houthi fighters killed several Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters and damaged four armored vehicles of the UAE military during the ambush. Furthermore, the Houthis captured 35 fighters of the Saudi-led coalition.

The district center of al-Durayhimi is located in a strategic area that overlooks the city of al-Hudaydah and its airport. The city is considered the main target of the Saudi-led coalition, which has been attacking it for three months without any success.

Two days ago, Saudi-led coalition warplanes killed more than 55 civilians in a series of airstrikes on al-Hudaydah. Despite of the massacre, a spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition, Colonel Turki Al-Malaki, told the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV that the coalition is determined to continue its attack on the key coastal city.

I think translation is a bit misleading as it is not a large unit. A few killed and 4 armouredvehicles damaged and 35 captured seems more like a coalition reconnaissance force. More important is the ratio of killed to captured.

Only a handful killed but 35 captured tells me coalition units are not putting up a fight. This is consistent with reports of desertion and insubordination (refusal to fight) running rampant in coalition ranks to the point an amnesty was declared for all soldiers in Yemen in order to convince deserters to return.

I am sure they were very disappointed with how very few returned.

Where are the White Helmets? Oh that is right,they are the only ” humanitarian “organisation that will pick and choose their victims to death!

The White Helmets is like a humanitarian organisation who will help only the top 0.1% because they have money problems!

Poor poor ,Red Cross in Greece and Italy helping all those ungrateful Takfiri rapefugees. I never saw a Moslem humanitarian organisation help the Christian Cypriots of 1974 from Takfiri Turks or Ex Yugoslavian Christians in the nineties!
