    The Saudis have long opposed the formation of Yemen as a nation . Long before the present war with the Houthis . One has to ask them the question , what would replace a unitary Yemen ? But a fractured and sectarian society . One that will further encourage separatism in Arabia Shia regions. And reduce Arabia to a small state , without oil ?

    Like all the other ethnic conflicts , that are driven by blind hatred by a distressed population and aggravated by foreign non - regional interests to further their own agenda and influence. Like inability or the lack of foresight by regional states to stop Kurdish separatism , and maintain international borders and national sovereignty. Separatism in Yemen by Southern movement is leading cause of the problem. Aided by foreign ( American) interests.

    Houthi official:

    "The reason US reversed their decision to classify Ansarullah as terrorist organization isn't because they are morally motivated, but because it would have isolated US themselves from playing any future role as Yemen has become a strong nation and if the American administration has any moral values, it would have renounced its classification of Palestinian resistance groups as terrorism first."

    "It's wrong to consider the US decision as a blessing wished for us, like how Pharaoh did with Moses & said "Didn't we mistaken you as our child but stayed with us longer", Moses replied "It's a blessing you wished for worshiping the Israelites. Hence we say the same thing to America: Is this a blessing you wish we had for you to attack, besiege and starve the Yemeni people?"

    Whatever dude, nobody in Yemen still gives a shit about this as long as the US is still allowing Saudis to impose sea and air blockade and Saudi bombings still continues. Just cut the BS and do the ACTUAL right thing.

    No doubt the US wants to protect it's vassal, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which buys from it and its industries some $100 billion of some of the world's most advanced military tech, and still bungles the war up to such an extent that a bunch of sandal-wearing insurgents are poised to now bring the war to its own territory

    I doubt Washington desires to see a mounting Shia rebellion in Saudi Arabia aided by Iran, or any disruption to oil industries in the region. It makes sense for them to open contacts with the Houthis and other Yemeni groups, and attempt to regulate the situation amicably at this stage.

    #UAE is dismantling part of its military base in Assab, #Eritrea. The UAE used the port and airstrip in #Assab as a base to ferry heavy weaponry and troops into Yemen. The drone hangars have also been destroyed after allegedly being used in #Tigray.

    But the most interesting part people don't realize is Yemeni Army & Houthi forces have also opened a new front at SE Sirwah in Wadi Dhanna. They are pushing through in order to cut off main supply using #Marib-Harib highway.

    As what I've expected many months ago: Storm the Al Jubah highway (connecting between Marib and Harib), deny Hadi/Islah supply route for Muradi tribes in southern #Marib front (Jabal Murad-Al Jubah-Rahabah). Then reactionary elements will finally gets besieged.

    Marib is just the beginning...

    Taiz next...

    Then Aden...

    Soon Mukalla and Seiyun...

    And finally Socotra and Bab al-Mandab...

    So-called military analysts or Western-based OSINT should NOT underestimate Yemenis capability to travel far to Yemeni islands like Zuqar, Perim and Socotra. You don’t want to mess with the Yemeni Naval Forces in near future when the war in mainland Yemen is over.

    Isis announces its participation in the battles of Marib against Yemeni army.
    we have known this since day one, al-Qaeda is also involved. So the army of Saudi Arabia, the Hadi army (National Army), with Isis and Al-Qaeda want to rule Yemen.

    Houthis are inching towards Marib. Now at ~5 km distance. They are likely creating the necessary conditions now for the tribes to turn coat and hand the city over without much bloodshed

    Would be best if they take up positions in the North and South to give the tribes some more incentives

    As I understand it that lot just surrendered.

    Discussions have been underway for a while yet, both sides of locals are very keen not to destroy the infrastructure of Marib town and its population. Part of the slow moving advance could well be due to allowing the Saudis and other outsiders to escape rather than be trapped and fight to the end.

    On a side issue can you just extract the tweet's words rather than the whole thing which burns a lot of space?

    Daily reminder: There's a national urge to liberate #Marib, but there's also no rush to enter Marib City.

    The revolutionaries have made the decision they will never rest until Marib is liberated entirely, whether it take up to 1 month or 5 years or not. Every inch of Yemeni territory will never be given up. And they will be liberated one way or another.

    No more rooms of coexistence, collaboration, autonomy, or bipartisan rule with traitors like Islah, GPC & those aligned with Saudi-led coalition in Marib who are serving the foreign imperialist interests.

    Marib will soon return to her true homeland ruled by free Yemeni people.

    MB activists said that Marib must be defended at all costs because the capital of Sheba kingdom & where Queen Belqees lies is an important symbol of Arab identity and nationality.

    They are right. That's why Ansarullah is there to fulfill this term to expel traitors like Islah.

    The X on that road shows where the Yemini Army/Houtis are trying to get in range of the road NE out of Marib that supplies etc from Saudi come down.

    They already are in range to attack the road going south.

    At least in Yemen there are no known US boots on the ground.

    The thing is that KSA wouldn't have started the bombing campaign without Obama/Biden's military support in the first place. They like to pretend like it's all Trump's fault.
    Remember what happened when Trump announced US withdrawal from Syria? It was a near mutiny - pushback was as instantaneous as it was fierce with the defense secretary tendering his resignation. These people love war more than anything.
    I think this was more like the Saudis themselves realizing that they bit off more than they can chew and are looking for a non-military solution. This isn't really that significant IMO.

    The Yemeni army  said they launched a "massive air strike" with Qasef-2K drones on a number of important targets at Khalid Air Force Base in Khamis Mushait this afternoon.

    The first time this morning, three Samad 3 and Qasef K2 UAVs attacked the base, and a few minutes ago, in the second phase, five UAVs shelters and ramps of this large base, from where various Saudi fighters to support their mercenaries in Marib. Destroyed the fly.

    The Yemeni army drone unit, in an attempt to stop the Saudi army air force in supporting the mercenaries on the Ma'rib front, has twice targeted the King Khalid air base in Khamis Mushait in the province of Asir since this morning
