Houthis Capture Strategic Region In Northern Yemen (Videos)

Donate

On June 7, the Houthis launched a large scale military operation in the district of al-Maton in the northern province of al-Jawf. The Yemeni al-Masira TV said that Houthi fighters captured the strategic al-Mazwiyah region from the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemen proxies during the operation.

Following the Houthis’ attack, the pro-Saudi branch of the Yemeni military declared al-Maton a “hostile area” and called for an evacuation of civilian residents. This indicates that the district is now under the full control of the Houthis.

The Houthis media wing also reported that Houthi fighters had repelled a large attack of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies on their positions in the area of al-Mahashmah in Khabb wa al-Sha’af district of al-Jawf. The source claimed that the Houthis had destroyed 21 vehicles of the coalition.

Local observers believe that the Saudi-led coalition will respond to its recent setbacks in al-Jawaf by stepping up its aerial operations against the Houthis there. Later, the coalition may attempt to launch a military operation to recapture al-Maton.

      the houthis have larger army than you think. They held out for quite a long time. plus as for weaponry they are from 1970s + modern weapons looted from the Saudis + domestically produced variants.
      despite the age of the weaponry the skill by the users is what makes them effective.

      A large scale attack could have been actually a small scale skirmish over a small settlement (around 9-14 buildings) strategic usually means in the case of small settlements a border/highway/railroad crossing junction in some other known cases this location is either important the defense of a area to either prevent or allow raiding parties to go deeper behind main enemy front lines. .

      skilled fighter team can leap frog (each fighter providing covering fire as another moves up)

      Against poorly trained fighters the houthis could just need to make it to villages center before the suadis lead forces retreat.

      No no no, if it were as you say, the fearsome Saudis would not be having their butts handed to them on a platter.

      Houthis success in emasculating the apparently not so fearsome Saudis is thanks to their being equipped by Hasbro with advanced weapon systems. The latest success in ejecting Saudi forces from large swaths of Yemen was not due to use of antique guns. It was thanks to Hasbro’s generous shipment of several hundred advanced slingshots capable of a devastating volley of marbles.

      The poor Saudis never had a chance…

      • Joe Dirt

        yawn….this information is over hype from “The Houthis media wing”

    • Ariel Cohen

      Joe, aren’t there enough camels and goats in Occupied Palestine that you have to come and f**k with us here . . .?

  • SurfaceBook

    be aware , the hasbara Disqus ID ‘joe dirt’ tasked here to ruin the discussion by posting non sensical comments..

    as for the article itself, the houtis been successfull in cutting the SAUDI/UAE supply line and it is a do or die moment for the invaders before their main force get slaughtered up north..

    the houties , their homes got bombed to oblivion , have no recourse but to fight , and this is not for abstract concept but to fight for their homes and families.. the best motivation of fighting force

    • LR captain

      im actually curious are you an actual admin for disqus?

      also glad to see that some one else understands the Houthis motivation and how tense the situation actually is.

      • SurfaceBook

        i am not DISQUS admin but i am the convent review team whose job to filter out astroturfers and those who use multiple disqus ID to play sock puppet games

          shouldn’t you be kissing a carpet?

            You clearly prove SurfaceBook’s point. I have no time to read comments from people like you. Blocked.

            Ditto!

          • Concrete Mike

            I prefer to lick”carpet” . You like balls since you clearly hate carpet so much???

          • S Melanson

            LOL, I see what you did there. Well he should hate carpets, he keeps getting hauled out on one. As for ‘carpets’, he probably never seen one.

            On a serious note, his posts are disjointed and responses often so off the mark I wonder if he is a bot. I don’t think he would pass the Turing Test.

            Hey Joe . your son’s Bar Mtzvar is almost over . . you better run. Get off that camel, pull up your pants and make an appearance there . .

        • Val Shadowhawk

          THANKYOU!! I block hasbaRat trash and their fellow devotees’ as a general practice. Wasting time replying to such filth, is not something anyone here finds it within themselves to pursue.

          • Concrete Mike

            Hehe I like to chirp them , it’s good to let off on someone once in a while

          • Val Shadowhawk

            Hehe! Yeah, I can say, yours truly has been on that wavelength at one time or another. Give the idiots a good healthy intellectual bashing every now and then. Nothing wrong with that, so long as one is mindful of the ‘too much of a good thing’ principal in the process. Understood!

    • Joe Dirt

      beta male alert! can’t handle the truth? you wanna shut down the opposition? typical fascist

        Your the fascist pig here, you don’t even know what fascist is.

    The sauds lost this war the moment they started indiscriminately bombing towns and farms in an effort to essentially starve/genocide the houthis to death…

    This war is far from over, but the outcome is clear…

    • S Melanson

      Yes, the bombing of farms and villages to intimidate is a fine example of the kinds of decisions coming from the Saudi’s strategy challenged military command. When there is an entrenched insurgency, history has shown such actions have the opposite effect as it serves to feed the insurgency.

      But the Saudis are not going to let historical fact get in the way of their ineptitude.

  • Houthis are fighting valiantly with minimal weaponry. Wahhabistan’s Sudanese mercenaries have 1st class gear. Go Houthis! Take it away from them!

    • S Melanson

      And they are doing just that. Although they are giving the Saudis something back such Sam lessons in warfare; being equipped with the latest gear a good soldier it does not make.

      But more importantly, maybe the Houthis will impart upon the Saudis some much needed wisdom.

      Wisdom to finally recognize that in their arrogance, they were incapable of entertaining the possibility that it was their own ineptitude that has brought upon them a never ending string of military setbacks.

      The Saudis are a case study in how arrogance (vanity) blinds you from recognizing your own failings. And so you repeat the same mistakes over and over.

      Wisdom starts with humility and humility is the true foundation for self knowing and inner courage. The Saker and PCR are symptoms of a society deceived by a debased philosophy that has demonized humility by erroneously equating this virtue with weakness.

      The accusations thrown at Putin in the MSM could be said of most political leaders, but I do not think they apply to Putin. Putin I am sure struggles constantly with his demons that speak to his vanity. But so far, Putin continues to portray an outward humbleness and this humility manifests in his style of diplomacy that shys away from the dramatic. Saker and PCR have misinterpreted this as weakness when it is quite the opposite.

      • Concrete Mike

        Bravo on that last line.

  • Amine Mansouri

    OMG! the first video is fake! I mean, just listen to the shots, they eventually took war sound from Battefield 4

  • Britam

    The pictures of the old man, about my age, using the Lee Enfield .303 bolt action rifle tells the tale. When locals are willing to fight with older weapons and minimalist equipment, you know they’re in it for the long haul. Didn’t the Taliban fight the old Soviets with similar supplies? Now the Houthies need a real outside supporter to take the next step, into the Kingdom.
    As for the ‘hasbara’ commenters; the astute reader is like the proverbial camel caravan. They hear the dogs barking but move on anyway.
