The Saudi-led coalition announced on March 7 that it had carried out a “special operation” against key targets of the Houthis in the western Yemeni province of al-Hudaydah.

“The Coalition’s Joint Forces Command carried out at 00:30 am on Sunday a special operation in the district of Salif against military targets affiliated with the Houthi militia threatening regional and international security,” Col. Turki al-Maliki, a spokesman for the coalition, said in an official statement.

According to the spokesman, the operation, that was carried out by coalition warplane, targeted six facilities where the Houthis assembled or launched water-born improvised explosive devices (WBIEDs) and naval mines.

Col. al-Maliki stressed that the coalition will continue to attack such targets “in line with international humanitarian law and its customary rules.”

The pro-Houthi al-Masirah TV confirmed that Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeted Salif with at least two airstrikes on March 7 morning. No losses were reported, however.

The Saudi-led coalition’s attack is a violation of the U.N.-sponsored ceasefire in al-Hudaydah. The coalition claims that the Houthis are also violating the ceasefire by launching missile, drones and WBIEDs from the coastal province.

    That’s Israeli pilots in Ziodi Arabia military uniforms against the Houthis. Saudi “special opeations”? That sounds hilarious. There’s a few things the Rothschild neocolony in Palestine and Ziodi Arabia have in common, both regimes are abortions of Ziocorporate British terrorist foreign policy schemes, both are fanatical extremists of their respective wings of the Ziowahhabi ideology, and both hate the rest of humanity, especially those who resist the global Ziocorporate reign of terror.

    This is a rant that I really have to get off my chest (I’m not drunk right now or anything). MBS really strikes a nerve in my bipolar disorder compared to Erdogan. I’ve long predicted that Saudi Arabia was going to lose this genocidal war in Yemen sometime in the future. What tells me everything: MBS has a very bad taste in wrestling, and he himself is extremely hated in the old-school wrestling community. Many I know have completely boycotted anything WWE because of it. What makes you think he has a good taste military-wise? All the money he’s poured into WWE is having a very bad influence on wrestling today in general (his money influences the company’s creative), and has completely killed any chance of WWE making a turn-around. I think MBS and his lackeys may be gay. Not only are they killing people in Yemen, they’ve killed a lifelong hobby of mine. Being born in 1990, I grew up during the Attitude Era, and that classic entertainment helped me through a very bad point in my life.

    How in the hell does MBS prefer this modern gay wrestling crap when compared to the Attitude Era? This is what I grew up on, WWF, WCW, and All-Japan. This is when wrestling was for real men, and these Saudi genocidal maniacs prefer kiddy gay shit? Really wish that Steve Austin gave this MBS fool a Stunner.

      WWE has always been nerdy kiddy shit. It’s fake, and everyone watching it knows it’s fake. It’s the intermission at a circus where crowds are entertained with clowns falling over each other, except with steroid junkies instead of clowns.

      MMA/Cage Fighting is the only man’s sport.

    Houthi SEALS counterattack six sites in Port of Dubai in retaliation. Find it deserted – only closed shops and empty buildings with “For Sale – Cheap!” signs. The only person they could find was an old lady selling vegetables out of a shopping cart. She angrily explained to them: “Oh, they’re bankrupt. They all fled back home to London last month. Same with the Saudis. Did they owe you money, too? They ripped me off for a few kilos of dates last month. May the prophet punish those conniving thieves for eternity!”

        Psychopaths gonna psycho. Backstab Greek partisans to install a ‘preferred’ leader. Nazi collaborators hired back into government and secret police. Foreign-infested surveillance state. Foreign black sites, political prisoners, torture, beheadings. Corrupt leaders asset-stripping and putting future generations of Greeks in eternal debt.

        Once a nation’s laws and elections are corrupted, there will be no fixing of anything by the little people. The Greeks know better than anyone that there is only one real tool for fixing such a horrible, broken democracy: wood chippers.

    Houthis reported no losses, Saudis suck ASS lmao

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Saudis are in trouble as there is growing infighting in the house of Saud pimps and the ARAMCO IPO is worth half of what it was supposed to be. MBS is a total moron and desperate to show any “success” in Yemen, it simply can not happen due to various reasons. More and more of the Wahhabis are getting disillusioned as they die on Yemen. There is a very high probability of a civil war and only the Americunt occupation forces are keeping the headchopper MBS alive.

      • Assad must stay

        Hopefully it all comes crashing down for them soon

    Saudi Arabia will fall.

    • Ashok Varma

      It is a corrupt system based on a single family, like the mafia and is untenable.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Saudi special operation is to hand over more weapons to the Ansarallah and run like hell.

  • Ashok Varma

    Oil prices have fallen 30% in a few days and Saudis can not fight a losing war and internal unrest at the same time. Only western support is keeping MBS in power.

    Aided by western intelligence services the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has embarked on a broad security crackdown by rounding up royal rivals. Several hundred royal family members and officers of the National Guard loyal to the deposed Crown Prince Nayef have been arrested or disappeared.

    “…in line with international humanitarian law and its customary rules.”
    Since when have the saudis given an F about international law or norms? Not in Yemen, nor anywhere else or at any other time (except maybe on those rare occasions where it actually advances their interests).

  • Lazy Gamer

    Just how much support will Russia be able to give to Syria when the next round begins considering that oil prices are now low? It’s like a multiple drain on its economy : Sanctions, oil war, corona virus, syria and libyan conflict. There will be social unrests back home due to key sectors remaining under budget.

    • Superfly

      Saudis on US orders are trying destroy Russian and Iranian economies but will shoot themselves in the foot.

    • Traiano Welcome

      Endless support. Russia still has tons of cold war ordnance and material to burn through, soldiers to train in the Syrian theater and private russian companies drawing revenue from their involvement in Syria. I doubt this conflict is bleeding their resources, quite the reverse actually …

  • Superfly

    On US orders Saudis are trying to weaken the Russian economy. With the Saudis slashing prices and specifically targeting Russia’s customers in what appears to be the initial maneuvering in what could be a full-scale price and market share war, the price could fall as low as $US15-20 a barrel.

  • Assad must stay

    Hahahaha Saudis cant fight for shit this is too funny just give up MBS its over go back to being just another random saudi

  • Traiano Welcome

    I do not recall Saudi Arabia being a naval power of any significant scale. In fact, I believe my sailor grandfather was a bigger naval power than Saudi Arabia …
