On April 29, the Houthis concluded their large-scale operation, dubbed “Prevail Over Them,” in the northern Yemeni province of al-Jawf.

A spokesman for the Yemeni group, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, told the al-Masirah TV that the remaining regions of al-Jawf were captured, claiming that 95% of the province is now clear from the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies.

“In the last phase of Operation Prevail Over Them, the al-Labanat Camp, al-Aqsh’a, al-Khasf and the nearby areas in al-Maraziq and al-Mahashmah in al-Jawf were cleared,” the spokesman said.

Brig. Gen. Sari added that the recently cleared areas, which include the al-Hzim desert and areas in the nearby district of Khabb wa al-Sha’af, stretch over 3,500 km2. According to the spokesman, 1,200 Saudi-backed fighters were killed in the last phase of the operation.

Earlier this week, the Houthis released a combat video of the final phase of Operation Prevail Over Them, showing the capture of the al-Labanat Camp. The military camp, which was one of the Saudi-led coalition’s last positions in al-Jawf, is a bridgehead to the nearby province of Ma’rib.

By imposing control of vast regions of al-Jawf, the Houthis have solidified their positions on the border with the Saudi province of Najran. Moreover, the Yemeni group has repeatedly demonstrated itself capable of launching cross-border raids from al-Jawf.

Saudi Arabia may not survive as it only source of income has dried as it is begging for loans to keep the war in Yemen going. It has approached India for a $10 billion oil for cash swap.

Is the English map label correct? I thought green is Houthis and red is Saudis.


The Saudis have lost and should eat crow or bats and leave Yemen alone.

The Saudi clown prince has destroyed his family run desert kingdom. Their economy is is tatters and they are asking India for loans as budget deficit is $64 billion. For all of the insane Crown Prince Mohammed’s efforts to crush dissenters at home and silence his critics abroad, his role in escalating an suicidal oil war with superpower Russia showed a mental insanity that’s marked some of his decisions—including a failed boycott of neighboring Qatar and a disastrous military campaign in Yemen. There was also the gruesome murder in 2018 of columnist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents on his watch. No leader, though, could have accepted advice from another insane leader Trump and embarked on a road to ruin.

Saudi Arabia’s economy totally hinges on petrodollars, in contrast to neighboring Iran’s diversified educated economy, despite the prince’s insistence in 2016 that by this year the kingdom would be able to “live without oil.” With such a young largely uneducated population with an average age of 35, the government can’t continue being the main employer and needs to create jobs in the private sector while bringing more women into the workforce.Saudi Arabia and young Saudis, the lunatic prince’s main constituency, are going to face another new normal: a very poor defeated country, zero economic growth, social unrest and even a weaker private sector, and a rampant Iran calling the shots in the region. The Saudis have indeed shot themselves in the proverbial foot with destructive advice from their US and Israeli patrons.

Zionism = EVIL

Good analysis. India should stick with Iran and Russia, time tested friends.

Zionism = EVIL

Dumbass Saudi cunts picked a fine time to lose in Yemen Lucille :)

Zionism = EVIL

The daily dumbass Saudi shitheads whupping continues unabated:

SAUDIS LOSE 3,500 kms territory in one day

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Ansarallah forces (Houthis) announced on Wednesday evening, the end of their large-scale operation, stating that they control 95% of Al-Jawf Governorate.

Al-Masirah TV quoted a spokesman for the Ansarallah-aligned Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier Yahya Sari of the Yemeni special forces, as saying that his forces killed approximately 1,200 enemy fighters, while capturing several sites across Al-Jawf.

He confirmed that the newly captured areas amounted to 3,500 square kilometers, that is, the entire Al-Hazm desert, in addition to the areas of Khub and Al-Sha’af, pointing out that Al-Jawf Desert formed the most important den for Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

“The importance of the camp is that it is the last stronghold of mercenaries in Al-Jawf, and it is a key to the Marib Governorate. The forces of aggression have escalated in Marib greatly during the last period and that the army and the committees are confronting them,” general Sari said
