On December 29, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) released footage documenting their recent large-scale operation in the northern province of al-Jawf.

The operation, dubbed “Desert Dawn,” saw Houthi fighters capturing some 1,200 square kilometers, including the key area of al-Yatemah and its surroundings, from Saudi-backed-backed forces.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, revealed more details about the large-scale operation and its results.

“During the first hours [of the operation], our forces succeeded in confusing the enemy, who tried to push more mercenaries to the front lines. Meanwhile, the aggression’s warplanes launched more than sixty airstrikes in an attempt to impede the progress of the Mujahedeen,” the spokesman said at a press conference.

According to Brig. Gen. Sari, the Houthis killed 35 Saudi-backed fighters, wounded 37 and captured 45 others in the course of the operation.

Houthi fighters also destroyed, burned or damaged 15 military vehicles of Saudi-backed forces. Moreover, a US-made ScanEagle drone was shot down by the Houthis air defenses.

“Different units participated in this special operation, including the missile force, which, with God’s help, carried out a number of operations against military targets of the [Saudi-led] coalition of aggression inside and outside the country,” Brig. Gen. Sari said, adding “the drone air force [also] participated with a number of operations that targeted military positions of the coalition of aggression and its mercenaries.”

Operation Desert Dawn was a major blow to the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies who are already struggling to halt the Houthis’ advance in the central province of Ma’rib as well as along the coast line of the southwestern province of Taiz.

The Saudi-led coalition recent intense airstrikes on Yemen have clearly failed to deter the Houthis, who continue to launch large-scale operations.

Looks like those fat Saudi Pigs are taking one hell of a beating.


Most of them in Yemen are African + Saudi-backed slaves.
Most gulf states are run by ex-pats, their “military’ is no different.
Like Zion, Saudis can kill civilians only, KSA army is ISIS/Daesh at best.


Theres practically no combat footage in that vidya, it mostly documents Houthis rolling into the area and seizing supplies

Victory for small nations, good thing

They call themselves mujahideen. Now you know.

Peter Wallace

The US paid and supplied the mujahedeen before , so ?? . Mujahedeen simply means ” Muslims who fight on behalf of the faith or the Muslim community ” Not sure if you are trying to suggest that because they use the term mujahedeen that they are somehow terrorists. How about freedom fighters , fighting to free themselves from enslavement by the Saudi’s.

Lexicon of an average SF commenter:

Yemeni mujahideen = good
Afghan mujahideen = good
Iraqi mujahideen = good
Syrian mujahideen = bad
