    They could have had F-22's and the results would have been the same.

    Chances are the few MiG's they had were bombed on the ground in the first ten minutes.

    Yes, I am sure the rebels were flying MiG-29s an hour after capturing their base.

    How come you are believing Al-Hadath? By the way ..., Al Hadath is a "US" controlled prolefeed outlet.


    Even TR1 correctly reasoned regarding this.


    Also, even Al Arabiya said 4 MiG-29s "were destroyed", not shot down.


    Additionally, I have heard 4 Saudi aircraft were shot down, with crew captured.


    ShahryarHedayatiSHBA, can you, by the way, give us some continuous sitrep on the Yemeni stage of the "world war" from the Iranian sources.

    Iran strongly denoucnes Saudi-led invasion of Yemen



    Iran has strongly condemned the recent Saudi-led invasion of Yemen, calling for an immediate end to the military strikes against the country.

    Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Marzieh Afkham described the aggression as a dangerous move which is in violation of international responsibilities for respecting the sovereignty of countries.

    She said launching military strikes against Yemen would complicate the crisis in the country and kill opportunities for peaceful resolution of the crisis in the Arab country.

    Afkham also said the Saudi-led invasion of Yemen would lead to spread of terrorism and extremism in the region.

    Unknown plane fires 3 rockets at Hadi's palace in Aden



    An unknown warplane has targeted the residence of Yemen’s fugitive President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the southern city of Aden, a presidential security official said.

    The aircraft "fired three missiles at the presidential complex, which were met by the air defense" systems, the unnamed security official was quoted by AFP as saying on Wednesday.

    The security official further noted that the missiles hit "an abandoned building" used by guards within the presidential complex.

    The official stated that the missile attacks did not cause any casualties. Witnesses said plumes of smoke could be seen rising from the area around Hadi's complex in the southern port city.

    Earlier in the day an aide to the Yemeni fugitive president said he had been transferred to a "secure location within Aden."

    Members of the Houthi Ansarullah movement entered Aden on Wednesday after detaining Hadi's Defense Minister Mahmoud al-Subaihi and transferring him to the capital, Sana’a.

    “Subaihi was arrested in the city of Houta” in Lahij Province, Mohammed Abdulsalam, a spokesman for the Houthi movement, said in a statement aired by the Houthi-run al-Massira television.

    The spokesman said that Subaihi and others arrested were "transferred to Sana'a and are held by the armed forces."

    Air traffic was suspended at Aden’s international airport with an official saying, “Aden airport has been shut down and air traffic suspended due to the security situation."

    The latest developments come as Yemeni forces backed by Ansarullah revolutionaries seized the al-Anad air base, located about 50 kilometers north of Aden.

    A spokesman for the Houthis said the ongoing conflict is aimed at fighting al-Qaeda militants and the country’s former president.

    The spokesman added that the Houthis would respect the rights of people in southern Yemen.

    Days earlier, Yemen’s Houthi movement named Major General Hussein Khairan as the new defense minister for the country

    Iran, Russia diplomats hold talks on situation in Yemen


    A high-ranking diplomat of Iran’s Foreign Ministry has held talks with authorities in Moscow over the situation in Yemen.

    Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian met with his Russian counterpart, Mikhail Bogdanov, in the country’s capital on Wednesday.

    "During the discussion of the situation in the Republic of Yemen the common opinion was expressed about the need to settle the acute domestic crisis in that country on the basis of a broad national dialogue involving all influential political forces in Yemen," the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a report.


    Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian

    "Such a dialogue is meant to stabilize the situation in the country, preserve its territorial integrity and unity, find solutions of political and economic problems facing the Yemeni society acceptable for all sides, and prevent the transformation of the country into a new seat of international terrorism. Support was confirmed for corresponding efforts made by special adviser of the UN Secretary General for Yemen Jamal Benomar," it added.

    The meeting was held as reports said Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi escaped the country on a boat from the southern port city of Aden where he was staying.

    Meanwhile, the Houthi movement's Ansarullah fighters who took the capital Sana’a last September, managed to seize the city’s international airport.



    Iran briefed on inter-Syrian talks

    Amir-Abdollahian and Bogdanov also discussed the crisis in Syria, focusing on inter-Syrian talks, whose second round is scheduled to be held by the Syrian government and opposition in Moscow between April 6 and 9 in an effort to end a conflict that has gripped the country since 2011.

    "The Russian side shared information about the current preparations for the second inter-Syrian consultative meeting due in Moscow on April 6-9 that could create favorable prerequisites for organizing meaningful talks between the Syrian government and opposition in the interests of achieving national accord on the basis of the June 30, 2012 Geneva communiqué," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

    "Bogdanov and Abdollahian expressed deep concern about the large-scale threat to the region coming from the ISIL and other terrorist groupings and spoke for intensifying efforts to guarantee broad counterterrorist interaction on the basis of respect for generally recognized norms and principles of international law," it noted.



    Reality vs. illusion

    At a press conference following the meeting, the Iranian diplomat also commented on nuclear talks with the P5+1 group, calling on the other party to adopt a realistic approach.

    "The ball is now on the other side. The Western countries must take realistic decisions on this issue [preparation of nuclear deal]," the Russian Sputnik news service quoted him as saying. “The decision is not that difficult. They must simply choose between the reality and the illusion".

    Iran and the P5+1 countries - Russia, China, Britain, France, the US, and Germany - are in talks to work out a comprehensive agreement aimed at ending the longstanding dispute over the Islamic Republic’s civilian nuclear work as a July 1 deadline approaches.

    Pro-Government Forces Recapture Airport in Yemen's Aden From Houthi Rebels

    The Saudi-led airstrikes, targeting the capital Sanaa, have killed over 20 and injured more than 30, local security and medical sources informed Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Pro-government forces regained control over the airport in the southern Yemen city of Aden, seized the day before by forces supporting Houthi rebels, Agence France-Presse reported Thursday.

    Earlier in the day, Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi’s spokesman said the leader is in Aden and supports the international military operation against the Houthi militia.

    On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia announced the launch of a military operation against Houthis in Yemen. Several other nations, including Bahrain, Qatar and Egypt, are participating.

    The Saudi-led airstrikes, targeting the capital Sanaa, have killed over 20 and injured more than 30, local security and medical sources informed Sputnik.

    The Shiite Houthi group had taken control of large areas in Yemen, forcing President Hadi and his government to resign in late January.

    Hadi was under house arrest in Sanaa before he fled to Aden in February, disavowing his resignation.

    I don't know, how many MiG-29 and F-5 stay in Houtis hands after Saudi attacks, but if they have some left, than Iran should send combat trained pilots and ground crews to operate those planes against Saudis. Iranian pilots could do a lot of headaches to Saudis.

    Pakistan is also involved in this aggression, so I hope India will also support Houtis against Pakistan.

    Saudi-Led Coalition Resumes Airstrikes on Yemeni Capital

    The coalition carried out airstrikes on the positions of Houthi forces in downtown Sanaa.

    SANAA (Sputnik) —A coalition of Gulf states led by Saudi Arabia resumed on Thursday airstrikes on the Yemeni capital after a several-hour break, a Sputnik correspondent reported from Sanaa.

    "The strikes were carried out on positions of Houthi militants in downtown Sanaa," the reporter said.

    On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia announced the launch of a military operation against the Houthis, who currently control large parts of Yemen, including the capital Sanaa.

    Several other nations, including Bahrain, Qatar and Egypt, are participating. The Gulf nations claim the campaign is a response to a request of Yemen's ousted president, said to be in hiding outside of the country.

    China says deeply concerned about Yemen situation

    BEIJING (Reuters) - China's foreign ministry said on Thursday it was deeply concerned about the worsening situation in Yemen, after Saudi Arabia announced it had launched military operations in that country with Gulf region allies.

    Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that China urges all parties to act in accordance with United Nations Security Council resolutions on Yemen, and to resolve the dispute through dialogue.


    Hua told a news conference that China hopes all parties involved will "quickly resolve the dispute through political dialogue, solve the current crisis and restore domestic stability and normality to Yemen at an early date."

    She said that all Chinese people and institutions in Yemen were safe, adding that the foreign ministry and the Chinese embassy in Yemen had warned its citizens not to visit Yemen.

    Yemen exports about 1.4-1.5 million barrels of Masila crude each month, mainly to China, but a Chinese trade source said that volume was relatively small and could easily be replaced with West African crude.

    China's crude imports from Yemen in the first two months this year were 4.5 mln bbls, up 315 percent from the same period a year ago.

    China has traditionally kept a low profile in Middle East diplomacy despite its reliance on oil imports from the region, although it is keen to demonstrate its role as a force in international politics.
