    MILITARY SITUATION IN YEMENI CITY OF TAIZ ON JUNE 20, 2017 (MAP UPDATE)

    This map shows the military situation in the Yemeni city of Taiz and a part of its countryside.

    Earlier this month, Saudi-led forces launched an operation to capture the Republican Palace, the Tashrifat Camp and the central security forces camp from the Houthi-Saleh alliance.

    So far, pro-Saudi forces have manged to capture parts of the Republican Palace and the Tashrifat Camp. Now, they are developing momentum in the direction of the central security camp.

    If they are able to capture the three military camps from the Houthi-Saleh alliance, the defenders of Taiz will be put into a critical situation.

    The blockade of Yemen must end . Iranian navy could not break the siege alone . Faced with numerous coalition ships . They backed down . Humanitarian cargo was diverted . Iran does not wish to go to war with the coalition forces backed by yank and Co. But Iran can supply smart mini - subs to revolutionary forces defending Yemen . These can be entirely manned by the Yemenis . So that if they are killed or captured , then Iran can not be dragged into an unwanted war . The subs can be manned and launched at sea . In international waters . So that they do not even show a home port . They do not have to dock in Yemen port for fuel or supplies . Just carry out mission and sink enemy ship and then return to international water to be picked up . Or go in stealth into Iranian port on return journey . The blockade must end . The war must end . How many mini subs will it take to convince the coalition to end the war ? Fifty or hundred ? Destroying similar number of surface ships ? How long to train the crew ?

    The Russians and Chinese will have to turn a blind eye ...............

    A cheaper and quicker way is for Iranians to give plans for ROV submarine / torpedo to yemen . These then manufactured in large numbers by Yemen people themselves . Guidance can be radio . Or through wire . This is possible since objective is to clear the territorial waters of 3 km distance . So they can clear their coastal waters of enemy ships . Allowing first humanitarian supply ship to go to port in Yemen . Supplies then distributed to ALL needy populations .

    The different sides must declare ceasefire . Allow humanitarian supplies . Saudi will be caught in a net of peace !

    Russia winning friends

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 A.M.) – Russia’s Emergencies Ministry plane carrying more than 20 tonnes of humanitarian aid landed at Sana’a International Airport, Tuesday. Among other things, the cargo included food, tents, and medical equipment.

    On its return flight, the plane is to take Russian citizens wanting to return to Russia. They are expected to return to Moscow on Wednesday.

    UN officials have estimated that Yemen’s war, ongoing since 2015, has claimed the lives of over 10,000 civilians, with at least 2 million displaced because of the fighting. According to a UN backed report, some 60 percent of Yemenis, 17 million people, are currently in “crisis” or “emergency” food situations.

    @Johninmk

    Both Russia and Iran and China can meet and have joint plan to end war in Yemen . The war only brings instability to a very sensitive part of the world . I believe in this plan , the priority should be humanitarian ceasefire . Allowing fair distribution of food to all regions . If ceasefire holds for longer . Then peace talks should be arranged . And Yemen helped along with a compromise democratic constitution . And elections .

    The yanks and Saudis will not go along with peace plan . Their only option for stopping democratic forces from establishing themselves in region is to exacerbate sectarian conflict and impose dictatorial rule .

    But it does not matter . With the support of the majority of people in Yemen . Following a ceasefire . Then as I said ways can be found by Yemenis themselves to keep their coastal waters free of enemy ships . To counteract the coalition airforce then small automated barges can be designed to carry supplies to Yemen coast . If these boats or barges are fast , and have minimal air defence , then hitting them from the air becomes if not impossible then impractical or uneconomic .In this way the blockade can be broken .

    The situation in Iraq is approaching stability . ISIS is defeated . In Syria the situation has improved . Syrian ground troops can now finish the job . Defeat ISIS . NONE of these areas requires massive Iranian involvement . So Iran can divert more resources to Yemen . No danger now of being engaged on multiple fronts .

    The technicals in my plan make , what the yanks think , irrelevant . Come to think about it , floating food parcels can be released at sea . Oceon currents then washing them ashore in Yemen . You can not shoot at 10,000,000 small food parcels . All you need is a ship and knowledge of Oceon currents . All nations can participate . When they pass bab-elmandab . Break the blockade .

    Sniper rifles of Yemeni Houthis

    Department of military industry of the Yemeni army loyal to the government of the Shiite movement Ansar Allah and its allies introduced several sniper / large-caliber "rifles" created by him. The caliber of the presented samples is up to 23 mm and even 30 mm. The latter samples are rather guns, so I took the word "rifles" in quotes.

    You overestimate power of west a bit. In Syria and Iraq actually situation is not going according to US wishes either. US is overstretching on all fronts now. Korea, Russia, China ... Gulf, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Venezuela, Turkey. They have plenty but not infinite resources base. The good thing is their internal situation is far from being perfect ....

    DUBAI, Sept 14 (Reuters) – Yemen’s Houthi leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi said on Thursday his group could target Saudi oil tankers should Saudi Arabia attack Yemen’s main port at Hodeidah.

    “We could target Saudi oil tankers and we could do anything, we have not done this before,” he said.

    In a televised speech, the leader also said his group’s ballistic missiles were capable of reaching the United Arab Emirates’ capital of Abu Dhabi and anywhere inside Saudi Arabia.

    Not only Saudi Typhoon, but also UAE AT-802 crash in Yemen in last few days and both were doing CAS mission. There is a good posibility, that they were shot down by SAMs, most probably by MANPADs.

    Yes and they are correct. The 'technical fault' was not avoiding the incoming missile or shell.

    MANPADs are not supposed to down advanced, state of the art avionics, immaculate engineered Western aircraft. Iglas had a malfunction that's why the aircraft was downed.
