Houthis Threaten UAE Capital With Missile Strikes, Claim Saudi Apache Helicopter Downed In Yemen

On June 1, the Houthis threatened the UAE capital of Abu Dabi with missile strikes in retaliation for the country’s participation in the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen.

“From now on Abu Dhabi is no longer safe, it will be within our ballistic missiles’ range,” Brigadier General Sharaf Ghaleb Luqman said in a statement, according to Yemen’s Saba news agency.

Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman added that Yemeni forces would confront the Saudi-UAE-backed advance, which is now ongoing in the country’s western coast, near the port city of Hudaydah.

“Yemen’s army supported by popular committees has recaptured most of the areas in the western coast,” the brigadier general said. “Islands and areas, where the occupation forces of the Saudi-UAE-led coalition are stationing, will be a cemetery.”

He also described reports about the Saudi-UAE advance in the northern province of Sa’ada as false.

On June 2, chief of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee Mohammed Ali al-Houthi announced that Yemeni forces had shot down a Saudi-led Apache helicopter during overnight clashes west of the Hais district, on the western Yemeni coast.

According to pro-Houthi sources, the coalition-backed Abu Haron Battalion of Al-Amalika (Giant) Brigade lost at least 238 fighters and over 51 military vehicles in clashes in the al-Fazah area of the Tahita district.

Additionally, the Yemeni TV station Al Masirah reported that Houthi-led forces had destroyed two battle tanks at the Yemeni-Saudi border.

      Legally speaking? Yes. Does this make a difference? No.
      Also, Houthi separatists should not be equated with Yemen.

  • Wise Gandalf

    They should not waste the expensive weapons for such empty stupidities. Better attack saudi troops forge ahead in Yemen.

    I’ve even heard that they destroyed 2 abrams in haja region, but idk how reliable that is tbh, still waiting for them to release video footage of all of the above

    I am not agree with IDF bull shit. In fact Israeli migrants holding whole Palestinian nation hostage from ages, slaughtering them slowly and taking their lands gradually. These European migrants have no right to be there in the Arab country of Palestine.

    Israeli migrants are child butchers.

    • Smaug

      You post this racist nonsense everywhere, even when the article does not contain the words ‘Israel’ or ‘Palestine.’

      • Rob

        It hurts you or disturb you, tell me?

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    AHAHHAAHHA!!! VERY NICE HOUTHIS!!! REALLY EXCELLENT :))) keep downing whatever you can :))))

    • Smaug

      Some are still only pretending to fight, while others are being overwhelmed. I guarantee there are no plans to recover ground lost the Saudi coalition.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        what?

  • Smaug

    Their associates have just suffered a massive defeat on the coast, and these guys are still using terror methods. If the Houthis don’t unify and sacrifice for each other for each other they’ll all be defeated.
