    I believe Houthis will make it through and eventually win the war decisively. 
    They are great fighters and obviously receive a lot of help from Russia through Iran and at least in the past through Qatar as well. 
    Saudis were probably thinking that by neutralising Qatar and blocking the ports will exhaust them, but Iran has its ways in the peninsula that's why the zionists try desperately everything they can to submerge them.

    Agreed with the above. Modern Yemen has been in countless wars since 1934 to this day so this is nothing new for them. Unless Iran's government is overthrown by the Zionist west, which is unlikely as they have failed many times since 1979, the Ansarullah will make it trough. In the scenario of Ansarullah decisive victory the highest price will be paid by the stooge Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Army unveils underground ballistic missile launchers
    [03/July/2018]

    SANAA, July 3 (Saba) – The army's missile force on Tuesday unveiled underground ballistic missile launchers that cannot be targeted by Saudi-led coalition's warplanes.

    "This comes within the framework of developing the missile capabilities and raising their effectiveness in the field," the missile force said in a statement.

    "The enemy should realize that all ballistic missile launchers are too far away to be hit by its fighter jets, which do nothing but committing massacres and killing women and children," it added.

    Advanced Flipflop firepower. Keeping an M61 supplied with ammo could be a problem.

    UAV...... is it possible for the Houthis to develop low flying cruise missiles?

    Clashes Between Houthis And Saudi-UAE Coalition Resume Near Hudaydah, In Other Areas Across Yemen

    On July 29th, Houthi and Yemeni army troops killed four Saudi soldiers and have captured two others in counterattacks near the border, as reported by al-Masirah.

    These developments happened during the Yemeni army’s attack on the Mash’al military base in the Jizan region in the southwest of Yemen. Furthermore, Yemeni snipers killed eight coalition-backed fighters in Jizan as well as in the west-central Yemeni Province of Ma’rib and the impoverished country’s west coast, al-Masirah reported.

    Al-Masirah has also published a video showing army operations against Saudi-backed troops in the Ta’izz Province in the southwest. The operation, as reported by the Yemeni Media, led to the seizure of an Emirati military vehicle, and an unspecified quantity of weapons and ammunition.

    This escalation comes as a result of heavy airstrikes carried out by the Saudi-coalition on the city of Hudaydah. According to residents, the airstrikes began in the early hours of July 27th and targeted a police station in the center of the city and a plastics factory in the northern part. The districts of Zubaid and Tahita, located in southern Hudaydah, were also bombarded.

    On July 30th, al-Masirah reported that the Saudi-led coalition has killed 4 and injured 5 more civilians, including children after an attack on the al-Hale district in Hudaydah. They also launched four raids on the Agricultural Extension Center in the al-Duraihemi district, two raids on rural hospitals and sixteen other raids on areas in al-Duraihemi.

    Al-Masirah reported a civilian was killed and three others injured on Friday after an undetonated cluster bomb went off in Zubaid. Cluster bombs, which have been also used in the past by the Saudi-coalition are banned under the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM).

    The Saudi-coalition’s offense to capture Hudaydah began on June 13th, with operation Golden Victory. However, the Saudi-led coalition has had no success against the Houthi resistance.

    On July 25th, the Saudi government announced the closing of the Bab el-Mandeb for oil shipments after the Houthis reportedly attacked two crude oil carriers. The Houthi, however, reported through al-Masirah that they attacked two military vessels. The Houthi have also threatened to block Bab el-Mandeb, claiming on July 26th that they possessed the naval capability to hit Saudi ports and other Red Sea Targets.

    UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths who is tasked with mediating the peace negotiations between the Houthis and the Saudi-led coalition has found no success in his continuing attempts to establish a dialogue between the sides.

    The Houthi refuse to surrender the city of Hudaydah to the Saudi-led coalition and would only allow a supervision by the UN, while they remain present in the city.

    On July 29th, the international non-government organization Save the Children warned that Saudi attacks could create conditions for a catastrophic new outbreak of cholera, which could affect thousands of people in Hudaydah. Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the body’s CEO reportedly claimed that the bombings could turn Hudaydah into “ground zero” for an outbreak.

    Yemen, and Hudaydah are in a increasingly worsening humanitarian crisis, caused by the maritime and aerial blockade imposed by the Saudi-led coalition.

    ^
    Mostly true except that Israel + US and other western countries know very well what is going on because they are actively participating in this war against Yemeni army/Ansarallah (aka the Houthis), albeit not officially. Bab-el-Mandeb or the Red Sea strait is the critical point Israel/US worry about. They will do anything to keep it open and prevent Ansarallah and Iran from controlling this pass. If Ansarallah could keep this strait under control (militarily closed for Israel/US/Arab gang) along with Iran having control over Strait of Hormuz, it would mean a lot of trouble for Israeli/Saudi/US/western alliance, not just in military but in economic (oil and gas) sense as well.

    Looks like it had a Paveway guidance front end, so guided onto the school bus intentionally. Mind you the US UN rep claims that it was being used as a 'human shield' WTF looks like US morality really down the tubes now.

    Ambush husit ... nobody got out

    Post  Ivanov673 on Tue Aug 28, 2018 6:27 am

    An ambush kills two military vehicles of the Saudi army in Najran

    In the first episode, as a result of a pickup in a mined area, at 0:15 it can be seen that the driver is lying on the steering wheel, the car caught fire and completely burnt out. The second episode was also accompanied by an explosion, a defeat palpable. In the end it is clear that there is no movement in the cabin.

    Any tank without infantry support is vulnerable, and if the crew run away due to any sort of damage, then even a cigarette lighter and a piece of paper or wood can destroy the entire vehicle...

    I wonder if Houthis already established a stable and recognized government in their territory, say like pick a new president and attempt to get international recognition, to back their cause.

    A major flaw i saw in Syrian rebellion and Libya was that there are no real recognized power (say Recognized by UN) and they failed to provide order and to make things worse there are also infighting within them. Thus any allies that might back Houthi would not be able to legally do boots on ground and directly aid them with necessary heavy equipment.

    They have Iran, sure, they take down Saudis mercs and troops, sure. But in long term this will drain their manpower, especially gulf states are basically can burn money to buy any firepower they want Plus the "legal" Government of Yemen are the one with Mansour Hadi. Houthi clearly on the disadvantage in terms of diplomacy. Any Houthi Allies would also found themselves in disadvantages because of lack of stable working Government of Houthi. Gulf States, US and allies can simply use the same excuse as what Russia use in Syria. To back a legal, UN recognized government.
