Houthis Capture Several Positions On Yemeni-Saudi Border (Video)

Donate

On August 29, Houthi fighters captured several positions around the al-Tul border crossing south of the Saudi province of Jizan following heavy clashes with the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV.

During the clashes, the Houthis killed many Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters. Several Upgraded M113 armored personnel carrier (APCs) of the Saudi military were also destroyed with Rocket-propelled grenades.

Al-Masirah said that Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted 15 airstrikes on Houthi fighters in an attempt to stop the attack on al-Tul. However, the airstrikes were not effective.

In August, the Houthis stepped up their military operations on the border with Saudi Arabia in what appears to be an attempt to draw resources of the Saudi-led coalition from its large-scale attack on the coastal Yemeni city of al-Hudaydah.

    Another defeat for the devil worshippers.

    Impressive. They really fuck them up.

      There seemed to be little order and discipline within the Saudi Proxies camp. Even though it was after a battle it still showed that little or no order had been observed. No trenches of foxholes with overhead cover, rubbish everywhere and the heavy machine gun with no rearward blast defences.

      Chaos.

        Third rate mercenaries. Just a bunch of guys with guns and no training. This tells me that MbS war is in serious trouble; likely not able to afford top-tier mercenaries. MbS will either lose the Crown Prince position or get to meet his maker sooner than expected.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Meeting his maker, whomsoever that is would be my preferred option Ivan.
          A vicious internecine fight between the Saudi royals would be a good thing :)

          It is not about money. Top tier mercenaries see joining the Coalition as tantamount to signing their death certificate. Since dead mercenaries cannot spend paycheques no matter how generous, only the desperate will sign up. This is why the breakdown in discipline and cohesion. The Houthis are laying the groundwork for taking this war into KSA and only a miracle can save MbS now.

        • You can call me Al

          What ?, he is going to Tel Aviv to meet Nutty ?.

      • S Melanson

        And the problems with order and discipline are only going to get worse until the overthrow of MbS.

      • Val Shadowhawk

        They are in a desperate panic.

    “During the clashes, the Houthis killed many Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters.”

    Seriously? Come on, it would be the Saudi Royal Guard defending Saudi Arabia’s borders, not their Orc army. This is a good thing because the only thing that will end this war is Saudi blood. Take the war to Saudi Arabia; force them to fight so that they are losing more than money.

  • john

    Damn these Saudi pawns are polluting the desert with their coolers and trash. Houthis continue to be the most impressive sandle wearing freedom fighters in the world, right next to the SAA.

    • LR captain

      the SAA wear Russian boots giving to them by Russia as of the military equipment.

      • Bobby Twoshoes

        The bad guys wear American boots given to them by America in both theatres. Did you have a point?

        • LR captain

          my point is SAA don’t wear sandals.

          • Bobby Twoshoes

            Probably not as much as Houthis though I’m sure some of them do sometimes, is there a conversation happening somewhere that inaccurate observation is relevant to?

          • LR captain

            the SAA don’t wear sandal’s at all, and yes Russian training would help the houthis quite a bit.

          • Bobby Twoshoes

            Sandals doesn’t have an apostrophe and I can promise you that sometimes some members of the SAA wear them. Training from anyone would help, again I fail to grasp your point, do you think Russia should follow the example of the Yanks and clumsily meddle in sovereign nation’s affairs at a whim and regardless of international law?

            The difference between the theatres is that Russia has a formal protection pact with Syria and being a law abiding international citizen has an obligation to respect said treaty, Russia has no treaty and therefore no obligation to take such risks for Yemen. The humanitarian support from Iran on the other hand is probably the only reason there are still Yemenis alive so stop bitching about Russia and give thanks to Iran if you care about the plight of Yemen.

          • LR captain

            the houthis invited the russians though.
            Also the soviets did have treaty with yemen.
            Not to mention that the UN demands that the Saudis stop attacking last port city controlled by the houthis. Russia deploying observation post there would crew the Saudi led forces over big time

            But you are right ” no obligation to take such risks for Yemen” that part. Yemen is beyond Russian sphere of influence.

            infarct here be an article on subject

            https://www.globalresearch.ca/russia-to-establish-a-naval-base-in-yemen-implications-for-us-military-involvement-in-syria/5587768

            But you would be better for stopping the war in Yemen, china their excuse. The gulf of Aden is part of their new silk road. they already have a base in jebuti (what that place is called at other end of the gulf.) Having another base in Yemen wold allow the china to threaten the US with closing the gulf of Aden off. As strange as it sounds Yemen is well with in china sphere of influence.

          • Bobby Twoshoes

            How unfortunate for your argument that the Soviet Union hasn’t existed for almost 30 years. If UN “demands” become mandates I’m sure Russia will help but that would require Israel not to exercise their veto. As for China, good luck persuading them to get their hands dirty for someone else, Chinese protect their interests by hedging their bets not picking sides; we’re all laowai to them. If the Yanks thought for a second that the Djibouti base had the capability for projecting Chinese power CNN would suddenly start making “democratic protests against the dictator Guelleh” propaganda. The fact is that the Chinese presence in Djibouti is allowed because it means America can outsource the job of protecting trade and use their own navy to more effectively threaten Syria and Iran.

          • john

            Yeah I didn’t mean that they wore sandals too, I just meant they are brave disciplined fighters for their country.

          • LR captain

            that i will agree on for most part keep in mind that before the civil war they were in state of stagnation since their last war with Israel. But the Russian retraining program did serve them very well.

    • jj

      Well the Houthis sometimes capture Saudi weapons intact, so if this war keeps going, eventually they will have enough weapons to conquer parts of Saudi Arabia for themselves. Saudis can’t fight their way out of a wet paper bag.

    • You can call me Al

      Nah, I put them head to head or sandle to sandle with The Taliban.

    • peacelover

      No SAA is next to them . I think even Hezbollah is next to them in bravery.

  • jj

    Houthis are amazing fighters. I would be happy if they ended up conquering parts of Saudi Arabia for themselves.

    • S Melanson

      This is coming.

      I remember a song, ‘the time has come today’. While I’m filled with much trepidation and worrying about what may follow and unfold yet, I’m also relieved and excited that the tide does seem to be turning re the centuries long empire business. So much damage was inflicted upon half the world or more since just ww2!

      Sometimes I don’t believe so much has transpired over the years and eons further. My heart is very heavy for how much needless and real suffering is taking place in the world where it can be helped. The people of the USA got it right at one point (even tho it was rectified by the PTB over the past couple centuries.

      Was reading a comment on the Saker’s blog earlier, a reference to how the real authentic America was uprooted or squelched, suppressed by the PTB, the radical capitalists/Imperialists of the day and an anti-America setup in its place. And got everyone to play along with it.

      This is all so cruel and absolutely not normal or civilized behavior in the least. Yeah, Carlin was right, it’s a big club and we’re not in it! I pray the globalists et al mess up and bring themselves down upon their own swords and save us the trouble. Somehow I don’t think thru have such virtues as honor and remorse.

    Oh happy day!

    Dead pigs all over the place!

  • occupybacon

    Why nobody explain what Houthis fighters keep in their mouths when talking?

  • occupybacon

    Hope they liberate Arabian Peninsula from the House of Saud

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    Excellent work as usual houthis, keep murdering saudi pigs and taking land, you and the SAA and russia and iran are changing the world right now :)))

  • The Farney Fontenoy

    Saudis living down to their name as flithy, i never seen a military position so littered with rubbish!

    The Houthis got some nice ammo out of that & a decent gun too! So nice of all these fighters to die pointlessly for a king who couldn’t give a damn about them!
