    Bowing to political pressure from Riyadh, the UN has temporarily removed it from a blacklist of children’s rights violators, after a report released last week deemed the Saudi-led coalition responsible for hundreds of minors’ deaths in the Yemen conflict.

    The reasons why the UAE withdrew its troops from Yemen

    Yemeni Conflict: News #2 - Page 18 3330762_original

     Bulletin «Intelligence online» in the article «Dans les coulisses du retrait emirati du Yemen» reported that Abu Dhabi feels betrayed by Riyadh, and the statute to provide military support for the Yemeni government, which the United Arab Emirates do not approve, after lengthy negotiations, has decided to withdraw its troops from Yemen.

    Before announcement on June 15, 2016 to withdraw from the coalition, UAE army acting against the Yemeni Huthis, UAE Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has dramatically increased the number of confidential meetings with his closest advisers. He wanted to enlist the support of the Chief of the General Staff of the UAE Hamad Mohammed Thani Al Rumaythah and his assistant Issa bin Saif al-Mazrui Ylane, as well as advisor on military matters Juma Ahmed Al-Bavard al-Thalassios before you make your choice. They are all located on the first cast when making strategic decisions. The Crown Prince also held talks with his younger brother - the national security adviser Takhnun bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

    Within a few weeks of tension between the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, which is the leader of the coalition, was growing. Emirati authorities never agreed to the appointment of Ahmed bin Zahir for the post of Prime Minister of Yemen, in April 2016. It is close to the former president Saleh the country, and was replaced by an official, valued UAE - Khaled Bach.

    But first of all Abu Dhabi is regarded as an insult to the appointment of General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, who is the commander of the Yemeni loyalist forces in February 2016, to the post of Vice-President of Yemen in April. This war is a member of the party "Al-Islah", a local branch of the movement "Muslim Brotherhood", which actively opposes Mohammed bin Zayed. Between Saudi Arabia and the UAE, a secret agreement was signed in March 2015, under which the parties have agreed that they will move away from Islamist movements.


    Faced with the failure of the coalition to win Huthis, who still control the country Sana'a capital, the Saudi defense minister, Mohammed bin Salman recently decided to establish an alliance with the "Al-Islah", hoping with its help to achieve success in the war, but without much success to date .

    In addition to military failures, the deadlock in the negotiations under the auspices of the UN, torpedoed unsuccessful bargaining between the Saudis and the Huthis, persuaded Mohammed bin Zayed to get out of the conflict, to further without getting bogged down in the swamp Yemen.

    Houthi rebels in Yemen fired a ballistic missile at a military base in the south of neighboring Saudi Arabia, local media reported Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Al Masirah broadcaster, the rebels said that the attack was a response to the continued shelling of different areas in Yemen by the Saudi Air Force. It was noted that the missile has accurately hit the target, yet no data on casualties or damage was released.

    179 Saudis reported dead by fatal missile strike

    After a few triumphant weeks for the Houthi forces, their tribal allies, and the Yemeni Republican Guard against the Saudi Coalition on multiple fronts, the Yemeni insurgency inflicted an even larger blow yesterday when a missile struck a Saudi camp.

    The missile targeted Jahf Camp south of Ta’iz currently occupied by the Saudi Armed Forces. This camp had been very instrumental as both a launching point for the loyalist forces on Ta’iz front and as an operational base to stop Houthi advances south of Ta’iz onto Lahaj and Aden.

    The missile launched was an OTR-21 Tochka strategic missile. The anti-Saudi forces claimed that this attack killed 179 soldiers. While the number may seem too large to be true, previous missile attacks launched on Saudi bases have been devastating to similar proportions.

    The Saudi Royal Army is in serious trouble inside the Jizan Region, as the Houthi forces and Yemeni Republican Guard advance north of the Saudi-border city of Khubah. According to the local Houthi activists, their forces have seized a large number of villages inside of Saudi Arabia these last 24 hours, while also surrounding the key town of Al-Qarn in the Jizan.

    In response to this massive assault by the Houthi forces, the Saudi Royal Air Force has conducted non-stop airstrikes over the Jizan Region, targeting the Al-Jarra Valley that is located near Khubah.

    If the Saudi Army cannot get it together in the coming hours, they could lose Al-Qarn to the Houthi forces, which would be an embarrassing loss for them.

    Al Masdar has really issues with reality. What happens is the same since the start of this tragedy. Saudis move towards border, leave flanks open, Houthis move past, kil15/20 people move back in Yemen. Rinse and repeat a dozen or so times.

    The Saudis have never been safe in Jizan, but the KitKhat crowd can't stay put long enough to occupy the areas and attract the Saudis. Just not worth it. This is keep going unless, people give the Yemenis a deterrent for the RSAAF. Also Another OTR fired, they're really scrapping everything to drop on KSA.

    Raytheon Touts Patriot Anti-Missile Performance in Yemen War


    Raytheon has claimed a Patriot anti-missile system used by Saudi Arabia has had a “100 percent success rate” in intercepting missile attacks by Yemeni rebels.

    Speaking at the Farnborough Air Show on Tuesday, Ralph Acaba, Raytheon’s vice president for Integrated Air and Missile Defense, said the Raytheon system employed by a Saudi-led coalition had successfully handled “well over a couple of dozen intercepts” of missiles over the last year.

    “Every target engaged was destroyed,” he said.

    The Saudi-led coalition has been fighting against Shiite Houthi rebels, which are battling Yemen’s recognized government.

    There have been numerous reports of the rebels firing ballistic missiles, including Scuds, at coalition or Yemeni government targets. On June 21, the coalition said a ballistic missile fired towards the central Yemeni city of Marib was “destroyed with no damage” by an intercept.

    EDIT: Oh hot damn, the vid says the second one was Abrooms. Another M1A2S bites the dust.

    Nope it's an M113 A300. My bad the ugly definition fooled me. One thing is sure, they put a big hole on the side...

    Armenian can you see if you find the first video, it looks like an M60 but it blows quite some times, so maybe an AMX30B.

    I'm dubitative since the hull is facing the camera while turret is checking its 9 o'clock. The turret is flat and long like the AMX with a 40 cal gun at least, but the hull is high like the M60. Lav AG (actually LCT/LCS 90) turret is smaller and has a shorter gun (90mm makes for a shorter gun cal wise) because it needed to be C130's...

    But maybe you're right, can't tell exactly from video.
