On December 27, forces loyal to Saudi-backed President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi captured over 17km2 of Khabb wa Sha’af district in the northern Yemeni province of Jawf, according to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV. The outlet also claimed that the Houthis’ defense started collapsing in Jawf after the recent advance of the Saudi-led coalition there.

Coalition warplanes supported the attack and destroyed 3 ballistic missiles launchers, 6 tanks and 3 vehicles of the Houthis in Jawf province, according to Yemeni sources.

Pro-Hadi forces also advanced in the central province of al-Bayda and captured the districts of Nati’ and Na’man on December 28, according to al-Arabiya.

The advance is a part of the Saudi-led coalition effort to capture the entire central Yemen in order to increase the pressure on the Houthis in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a.

The Saudi-led coalition announced that its warplanes destroyed several positions of the Houthis in the province of Dhale province in southern Yemen. Over 37 fighters and 3 commanders of the Houthis were killed in the airstrikes in Dhale, according to al-Arabiya.

The Saudi-led coalition and pro-Hadi forces launched several military operations all across the country in early December in an attempt to pressure the Houthis on multiple fronts.

    “Coalition warplanes” is shorthand for Yank warplanes – pilots and jets.

      Actually in all probability, Israeli, Moroccan and a plethora of Nato hero’s ……….
      I am pretty sure that the SAS is heading up the Saudi ground based strikes and providing real time battle field Intel and sigint/comms. The Houthis needed an ally like the Russians, who can ensure air exclusion/superiority…………….. but they don’t want to get into a full-scale spat with them just yet………………

        Every country that contributes to the suffering of the Yemenis will be cursed …

        PS 98: He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.

        PS 35:10 You rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them.”

        Prov 6:12 A troublemaker and a villain, who goes about with a corrupt mouth … who plots evil with deceit in his heart he always stirs up conflict.
        Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant;he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy

        Some of those so called heros will be sooner than you think dead and or captured, so World will have clear, vision what is going on.
        Second thing. Russian provide Yemwnis with intel, good or bad, but still significant enough to significantly damage Saudi’s army, infrastructure and bring War, and psychosis over the border.
        Don’t forget that Somalia is with Yemen, and won’t be long until they attack Saudi crude oil tankers with remote controled fast boats.
        Also, Sudan asked Russian army to establish a base on the coast of Red Sea. And one more, most important thing is that Chinese navy is about to head towards Indian Ocean and southern coasts of Yemen.
        So who is looser here.
        Saudis making grave mistakes and desperate actions.

        The Yanks are carrying out one covert airstrike every two days – that’s counting drones and warplanes

        • dontlietome

          Hi Simon, from where are you gleaning your intel ?

    • Brother Ma

      Just like us pilots who flew israeli planes in 1967 against egyptians etc

  • Serious

    The good guys always die first. The shit remain. One day, there will be no more good guys and the world will be full of shit.

    • Icarus Tanović

      I thought It only happen in this shit hole like Bosnia, and that sentence exist only here. Now I see that such saying exists in America too.
      Saudis are pussies. No contractors, mercenaries, Wahabie maniacs and other World wide shit can help them win this aggression towards Yemen.
      They’re only giving them more power to fight back and to drag entire Saudiya into never ending War with Yemen.
      That is because they’re evil and committing War crimes on the daily basis. One can see that this whole shit pile is from Langley facilities.

  • Wegan

    It’s not victory day yet. There will be a reaction. This war is not ending until the Saudis have hemorrhaged all their cash flow, which is about 3-5 years. They will start taxing and taking away benefits from their citizens to lower expenses. And there will be trouble in their own land.
    Not so smart to keep going. Negotiate with the houthis and get it over with.

    • Serious

      Saudis are brain dead people. That’s why they are the american best useful idiots.

      • Icarus Tanović

        That’s so fuckking right.

    • Brother Ma

      They will just sell off more oil asset as they have already done.

  • alejoeisabel

    Coalition warplanes means contractor mercenaries.

    • Simon Gould

      mercenaries with warplanes?

      • Brother Ma

        Yep.just ask solomon krypacek.he said he has former airforce buddies flying merc ops somewhere.guess we found out where.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    it also means that they train their army in war.

  • hhabana

    Houthis need manpads. Lots of them.
