Six Years Of Steadfastness: Houthis Summarize Their Achievements In War With Saudi Arabia

On March 21, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) shared a brief summary of the results of six years of war by Saudi Arabia and its allies on Yemen.

A coalition of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the US intervened in Yemen around six years ago with the aim of foiling the “rebellion” that was ignited by the Houthis and their allies.  Despite the overwhelming dominance in equipment, manpower and air support, the coalition has failed to achieve any of its goals so far. The Houthis are even still in control of the capital – Sanaa.

In a press conference, the Houthis’ spokesman Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari revealed that the coalition carried out more than 266,510 airstrikes on Yemen in the past six years. At least 1,000 airstrikes were carried out this year only. Many other strikes went unrecorded.

“Most of these raids targeted Yemeni citizens, villages, homes, cities, roads, mosques, as well as private and public facilities, and led to the death and injury of tens of thousands of Yemenis,” the spokesman said.

The spokesman summarized the operations of the Houthis and their allies in the past six years as follows:

  • The Missile Force carried out 1,348 operations in which 1,348 ballistic missiles were launched. At least 499 missiles were launched at key facilities and military positions in Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
  • The Air Force carried out 12,623 operations with drones. 572 attacks hit targets of the Saudi-led coalition outside of Yemen and 578 attacks hit hostile targets within Yemen. The Air Force also carried out 11,473 reconnaissance operations. This year, 1,464 operations, including 124 attack operations and 1,340 reconnaissance operations, were carried out.
  • The Yemeni Armed Forces carried out 12,366 combat operations, including:

-6,192 offensive operations, 167 of which were carried out this year.
-6,174 defensive operations, 113 of which took place in the last two months.

The spokesman noted that at least ten large-scale operations against the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies have not been revealed yet.

  • The Sniper Units carried out 54,025 operations, including 2,502 in the last two months.
  • The Engineer Units carried out 10,560 operations against fortifications, positions, vehicles and gatherings of Saudi-led coalition forces.
  • The Anti-Armor Units carried out 6,385 operations in which scores of vehicles were destroyed.
  • The Artillery Units carried out 59,852 fire support and targeting operations, 638 of which were conducting in coordination with the Air Force.
  • The Air Defense Force carried out 1,534 operations, in which 454 warplanes and drones of the Saudi-led coalition were shot down.
  • The Navy and Costal Defense Units carried out 34 attacks on Saudi-led coalition warships and naval facilities.

The losses of the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies in the last six years, according to the Houthis:

  • 10,403 Saudi service members were killed or injured. 403 of them – this year only.
  • 1,240 UAE service members were killed or injured as of March 2020, when the UAE withdrew from Yemen.
  • 4,416 Sudanese service members were killed and 4,218 were injured.
  • 226,615 Yemeni fighters of Saudi-backed forces were killed or injured. 18,000 were killed and 50,000 others were injured this year on the frontline in Ma’rib province only.

Furthermore, the Saudi-led coalition allegedly lost 14,527 vehicles, armored personnel carriers, battle tanks, bulldozers and heavy weapons during the last six year.

Brig. Gen. Sari concluded his briefing by praising the Houthis’ growing capabilities. The spokesman also vowed that the struggle against Saudi Arabi and its allies will continue in the 7th year of war.

“The enemy must realize that the 7th year of steadfastness will witness more military operations, which will not stop unless the aggression is stopped and the siege is lifted,” the spokesman said.

Some of the numbers shared by the Houthis were likely exaggerated. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the Yemeni group was able to hold its ground for the last six years and inflict serious losses on the Saudi-led coalition, which failed to archive its main goals.

Holy **** almost a quarter million casualties on one side only, what a war, but unfortunately, Gulf Arab mercenaries breed like sheep so there’s still a lot of work to do for Yemen

farbat

its called attrition war

Jesus

They need to step up from small arms operations, to more drone and ballistic missiles attacks; there is a great potential with those weapons to bring S. Arabia to its knees, and perfect the employment of these weapons by Hezzbolah and Iran.

farbat

the saudis are already on their knees they just dont know it yet because they are so clueless and externally controlled

Jesus

Externally or internally controlled, they do not have the air defenses to stop this Houthi attacks.

Jens Holm

Yes and the dollar collpased last week too.

farbat

peter lavelle who works for rt did say it once very good i try to find it but he said something like” hang on yemen because the saudis will soon collapse” and its quite right

Jesus

The Houthis need to ramp up the production of drones and ballistic missiles so that their attacks can employ more weapons per strike.

klove and light

the so called “saudi arabia” nation CANNOT collapse…

it never existed in the first place…..something that never existed cannot collapse…

it is British from DAY 1 of its creation……and as long as the british are around, their whole bunch of fake british created “states”…UAE,saudi,bahrain etc… will be around…………This also includes the fake british created “state” of United States of America…..

it was a marvelous truly satanic piece of action by the british to have so many “domino” states leading their Agenda of a one world government, knowing that ALL these fake nations will fight and die for the british satanic agenda building a wall of militarized fake nations to PROTECT the british satanic empire.

it is like a game of dominos………

the UK,USA,israelis and french providing the weapons and intelligence

the arabs of saudis,UAE and their slaves from s.america(columbia,argentina) and africa(sudanese) doing the fighting…

I wonder how fast the bastards would truly retreat, if the houthis(same could go for hezbollah-lebanon and syria and iran-resistance) would have the capability to fire off some “sweet” ballistic missiles on ports and electricity power stations/grids on marseille,london,manchester and Co …….

with the following message included…….dont even dare to think about using any kind of WMDś……or our next targets will be the over 100+ nuclear power plants in the UK and france!!!!!
ps. have a sweet day!

Jens Holm

Ill remind You Ottomans collpased and very much by the Saudis and the rest there too. Actually they as the only ones apart from Israel deserve any state. Ottomans never controlled the inland.

So You propose there should not be any new states and all You should join Ottmans all the way to Vienna or what:) comment image

farbat

somebody might claim they have dollars but america is printing trillions of dollars and makes sure to the world that its monopoly money so what worth does saudi have without oil

Jesus

Continuous attacks on their oil and refining facilities would diminish their foreign reserves and lead them to oblivion.
If they sell 2-3 million barrels a day, the house of Saud is done, and the US MiC will suck wind.

klove and light

THERE is no “house of SAUD”..

it is BRITISH from day 1 !just as the other fake britsh created “nations” which aklso includes the fake british created “united states of america”

Foreign reserves??????? what the fXXXX are u smoking

MONEY is an illusion, and THEY control the illusion, printing and adding money out of nothing but THIN AIR !

Al-Saud was tribe of corrupt sell out Bedouin Wahhabis that the British created to destroy the Ottomans and also plant Zionism in Palestine.

Jesus

“”” it is BRITISH from day 1 !just as the other fake britsh created “nations” which aklso includes the fake british created “united states of america””””

That is your delusion, if you know any bit of history you would not make idiotic statements.

“”” MONEY is an illusion, and THEY control the illusion, printing and adding money out of nothing but THIN AIR !”””

Within western sphere of influence, other countries foreign reserves include large quantities of gold and currencies supported by real economic assets and resources.

Jesus

Continuous attacks on their oil and refining facilities would diminish their foreign reserves and lead them to oblivion.
If they sell 2-3 million barrels a day, the house of Saud

John Brown

Yes they need to destroy the expensive and important parts of Saudi oil exporting infrastructure.

farbat

its actually quite impressive considering that most of it is via small arms operations

farbat

the rising deterrance capability of the yemenis just is getting clearer and clearer specially for those who are connected or dependent to saudi oil

farbat

while the gasoline price in places like russia will stay the same i can imagine it will get terribly expensive in places depending on saudi oil or generally persian gulf and red sea region oil quite alot like for example rok

Jens Holm

Those follow the market places, so You write crap.

Ashok Varma

The Houthis are a living legend. They have defeated a country with a bigger military budget than India, armed with the best western weapons money can buy. The Saudis and Emirati cowards should drown themselves in a open sewer in shame. The only word to describe the Ansarallah is RESPECT!

Potato Man

“The wealthy and powerful nations of the world are built because of gold mines, but they are rarely built on top of them.”
The west is running out of money, and their wars failed thanks to China, Russia, and the civilians of those countries that west start a war with to loot them (Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq) and now they trying again against Iran – Venezuela. But they fuking play with fire and I hope they burn for good.

https://www.rt.com/news/518727-venezuela-gas-terrorist-attack/

klove and light

The west is running out of money!!!!!

money is an ILLUSION……and they own this ILLUSION…..so stop writing nonsense…..

they are CREATING “money” out of thin air!!!!

Potato Man

If money is an illusion you never use it, do you?
Yes, US can print money (to some amount) because they hold world current for now. Other countries can’t do that because inflation will occur. Also, other weak countries or countries that have deal with the US buy US’s bonds.

Money used to be backed by gold but currently, there is no fiat currency in 2019-20 backed by gold, since the gold standard was abandoned a long time ago. On the other hand, some digital currencies are backed by gold.

I’m not gonna talk about how money is a thing now…and you missed my point, by “money” I mean – oil, gas, gold, rare earth minerals…which middle east has and ofc Venezuela is on top of sea of oil.
The US/UK/Nazi/France have started wars to make money, Libya (Gadhafi gold backed currency) we saw how that ended. China planning for new currency and other digital currency might be the next world currency.

Jens Holm

Money might be an ilusion for You. You forget the money, which is not made by thin air.

You are an ignorant stupid illiterist in those matters and dont understand our succes is based on debt by investments as well

The brave Yemenis who fight for their land and their freedom are giving an unparalleled lesson in civilization, and give hope to all those who love freedom and justice, from their example we all have to learn about the true meaning of life, which is to never bow in the face of arrogance and injustice, Houthi’s war is symbolically everyone’s war.

cechas vodobenikov

amerikan saudi cowards—low intelligence…they require many losses to comprehend defeat
20 years in SE Asia…defeat
now 20 years Afghanistan….now no intelligence

Jens Holm

As long as You kill each other, Ypu dont come here – I hope.

Arch Bungle

6 Years of steadfastness?

The Houthi are too modest.

They have been steadfast for more than 3000 years.

Boycott-Saudi!!!

“Some of the numbers shared by the Houthis were likely exaggerated. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the Yemeni group was able to hold its ground for the last six years and inflict serious losses on the Saudi-led coalition, which failed to archive its main goals.”

I do think it is exaggerated, but for minimal margin. Even if it was exaggerated badly, Wahabis already losses a lot of money and resources and it will go on and on! (Syrian war is reaching its 10 years). On the other side Houthis are getting their results from small efforts, they are yet to up the games of heavily armed drones and high explosive ballistic missiles, while Wahabis need to watch out for their oil-factories to not get raze down by Houthis. There is no way for Wahabis to win this war except “an all out war or even Nuke War” which they cannot afford (to handle the public response from such acts). So it is dead end for Wahabis sooner or later.
