    That's a confirmed fact. God hates Wahabbism, and that knowledge drives the clerics of Najd insane... Laughing

    Meanwhile in Saudi...

    https://www.rt.com/news/359627-saudi-civilian-strikes-yemen/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome

    In five of the last 18 months of the Saudi-led war in Yemen, the coalition hit more non-military than military targets, a Guardian study has revealed. Overall more than one-third of all strikes ended up hitting civilian sites including hospitals, schools and mosques.

    After analyzing public source data for some 8,600 air raids conducted by the Saudi-led coalition between March 2015 and August this year, the Yemen Data Project concluded that only 3,577 sites were of a military nature. Some 3,158 were listed as non-military, while 1,882 strikes were classified as unknown, the Guardian said in its analysis of the data.

    Furthermore, the data which has been collected from open sources and cross-referenced by the NGO using a wide range of information showed that Saudis flew 942 air raids on residential areas. The planes managed to strike 114 markets, 34 mosques, and 147 school buildings, in addition to 26 universities. The information also revealed that Riyadh targeted transportation network, striking some 37 transport sites.

    The Yemen Data Project said that the coalition hit more non-military sites than military in five of the last 18 months, with some target areas being struck on multiple occasions. One particular school was hit nine times, a deplorable fate that is shared by one market that was hit at least 24 times.

    The Saudi's look completely and utterly disorganised, incapable of defending nor do they appear to have the capacity to counter-attack.

    Are these attacks actually occurring inside Saudi Arabia? Why/how are they not able to scramble jets/helis to counter-attack? Haven't they a shed a load of hardware from the US and even Israel, drones included? Somebody somewhere within the establishment must be getting concerned by all this???!

    The Saudis had plenty of modern weapons before Iraq's move into Kuwait in 1990 yet they had to cry for US help. They were always pretty cowardly and inept. See e.g. what Pollack wrote about them in Arabs at War.
    I wonder, btw, about the political fallout of the Saudis's misadventure in Yemen. What if the they ultimately fail, ignominiously? Might that reduce support for the Saudi regime and give impetus to movements seeking to topple it? That would be long overdue and beautiful. Smile

    Looks like the Houthis maybe the most formidable asymmetrical fighting group in the world, as NAF are basically established military's now. I guess it helps to have Yemeni military be interchangeable among them, and I mean FFS they've been using ballistic missiles successfully on multiple occasions!

    This AShM is even more complex to use than the Tochkas...this is YAF.

    The Houthis are treated as a tribe, but I commented that their territory is almost coincident with the former Norther Yemen, which was the most populated and important part of Yemen.

    The video cuts out after launch. PressTV says it was 5-6 rockets launched at the vessel they had been tracking its route for months.

    Yes but that doesn't mean this is not YAF launching a Noor. This is the YAF and we all are grateful for the footage.

    Call me cynical but the superstructure of the boat in flames does not look like the side view of the catamaran they claimed to have hit. It looks more like a super yacht. Also there are no large secondary explosions that might be expected if carrying munitions etc, but it could have been empty.

    Seems like 5-6 missiles is overkill for what is essentially a commercial ship used for a military purpose.

    Yemen’s Houthis, allies set conditions for possible talks

    Yemen's Houthi Ansarullah movement and the General People's Congress (GPC) party of the former president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, have set conditions for the resumption of talks to end the Saudi aggression against the impoverished country.

    Delegates from the Houthis and GPC said in a statement on Saba news agency that Saudi-backed resigned president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, must go and an agreement must be reached on the presidency.

    "Any talks or negotiations by Yemeni delegates must be on the condition that the United Nations offers a written and comprehensive peace plan," they said in a statement on Tuesday, adding, "If the proposal does not include an agreement on the new presidential institution, then it [the UN peace plan] becomes merely a partial and incomplete vision, which cannot be a foundation for discussion."

    On August 7, the UN-brokered peace talks on the Yemeni conflict ended without an agreement in Kuwait. The negotiations between delegates from the Ansarullah movement and the former Yemeni regime of Hadi had begun on April 21.

    Experts said Saudi Arabia’s unreasonable approach caused the UN-backed peace talks on the Yemen war to fail.

    On August 13, Yemen’s parliament held its first session in the country’s capital, Sana’a, since the outbreak of conflict there 17 months ago. The parliamentarians unanimously voted in favor of the newly set up Supreme Political Council to rule the Arab country, stripping Hadi of his power and legitimacy.

    On August 25, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that he had agreed with the United Nations and Persian Gulf Arab monarchies on a plan to restart peace talks with a goal of forming a unity government.

    Yemen has been under Saudi military strikes since late March 2015. Houthi Ansarullah fighters, allied Yemeni army factions, and forces loyal to Saleh have united and are fighting back the Saudi invaders.

    The United Nations puts the death toll from the military aggression at about 10,000.

    ‘Devastating' to see Yemen malnourished children: UN aid chief

    In another development, UN emergency relief coordinator, Stephen O'Brien, said during a visit to Yemen that the organization needed the rapid cooperation of Yemen's warring sides to fight malnutrition that is afflicting millions.

    O'Brien added that in the absence of a political solution "it is our job to work with everybody to meet the humanitarian needs and to have the chance and the space to do that wherever those needs arise and to meet those needs impartially."

    Speaking to reporters in Sana'a, he also described as "absolutely devastating" the sight of Yemeni children suffering malnutrition.

    The UN’s aid chief said he had visited a hospital in the Red Sea city of Huraydah where he met "very small children affected by malnutrition".

    "It is of course absolutely devastating when you see such terrible malnutrition," O'Brien said,stressing, "We need to do more. We need to do everything we can to meet the very large scale of needs which are here in Yemen,"

    The UN children's agency, UNICEF, says about three million people in Yemen are in need of immediate food supplies, while 1.5 million children suffer from malnutrition, including 370,000 enduring very severe malnutrition.

    According to the UN, out of 28 million Yemenis, 21 million need some form of humanitarian aid and at least half the population suffer from malnutrition.

    Only reason this thing is not coral reef right now is the fact that it was catamaran and not standard hull vessel:

    Nah... what is keeping that vessel above the waves is that all the damage is above the waterline.

    As sub jockies say... an anti ship missile lets air in the top while a torpedo lets water in the bottom... of course anti ship missiles actually let fire in the top which can be just as destructive as letting water in the bottom... it is just not as effective at sinking ships. Still pretty much buggers them though...
