Houthis Make More Gains In Ma’rib, Target Saudi-Backed Tribal Leader With Ballistic Missile

The Houthis (Ansar Allah) and their allies continue to advance in the central Yemen province of Ma’rib, where Saudi-backed forces appear to be on the brink of collapse.

On October 29, Houthi fighters captured the town of al-Jarashah which is located some 35 kilometers to the south of Ma’rib city. The town is located on Route 574 that links to the N5 highway leading to the city.

A Yemen source told the Beriut-based al-Mayadeen TV that the Houthis captured al-Jarashah following heavy clashes with Saudi-backed forces, which failed to hold onto the town despite receiving close air support from the Saudi-led coalition.

Earlier this week, the Houthis successfully concluded the second phase of Operation Spring of Victory in Ma’rib after capturing the districts of al-Jubah and Jabal Murad.

The Houthis have been using all of their military capabilities, including their missile force, to mount pressure on Saudi-backed forces in Ma’rib.

On October 28, the Houthis targeted the house of Sheikh Abdul Latif al-Qibli Nimran, a Saudi-backed tribal leader, in the town of Al Sayyad with a ballistic missile, according to pro-Saudi media sources.

Sheikh Abdul Latif survived the pinpoint missile strike. However, twelve people, including two of the Sheikh’s children, were killed.

The Houthis will likely advance further in southern Ma’rib in the upcoming few days. So far, Saudi-backed forces have failed to organize an effective defense. Furthermore, the Saudi-led coalition’s intense airstrikes on Houthi forces appear to be ineffective.

Excellent results by the Houthi fighters. saudi swine thought their dollars would buy them victory including colombian and sudanese mercs.

Typical ignorant wahhabi scum. Disconnected from reality as they are all born cowards hiding behind money, cocaine, whores etc.

Mercenaries want to get paid. They have to be alive to get paid. Therefore like all mercenaries they do not give it their all in a fight. They don’t risk their lives. They take it easy try to make it look good for their slave masters.

As long as the Houthis give them easy routes to retreat from Houthy advances the Merks won’t put up much of a resistance.

The Houthis on the other hand are fighing for their lives and will fight to the death. Many have had family members murdered by the Saudi Israeli alliance. If they lose they will likely die. This makes them a highly motivated and effective fighting force.


It is incredible what they’ve done.


Yes, of course. The Houthi are motivated based on survival. This is self evident even to amateur observers. To those on SF who actually follow global geopolitical strategy the specifics start to emerge, as you have described.

The Houthi have more allies than the average imbecile can comprehend, think Eurasia.


sheikh what survived sheikh of the blood money or sheikh of daesh and al qaeda better name these terrorists as what they are

More drones!

Once past Marib, head up north to the Saudi border, then make a move on the south and take Aden, and with it the entire western half of Yemen, then move up northeast up the coast. Go Houthi’s!

The Houthis, blessed by the Almighty Creator, will send those yahoodi Saudia Arabians into the garbage bin of history.
