    OPSEC seems better at the targets this time.

    The Yemeni Armed Forces have carried out another retaliatory operation that targeted the Saudi and Emirati depths, in the early hours of Monday.

    In a statement, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e announced details about the retaliatory operations, saying that the Missile Force and the Air Force carried out a “wide-scale retaliatory operation in response to the American-Saudi-Emirati crimes against the Yemeni people.”

    “Today’s strike, dubbed Operation Yemen Hurricane 2, targeted the Saudi and Emirati depths,” the military spokesman said.

    “The al-Dhafra military airbase and other sensitive targets were hit in the Emirati enemy’s capital, Abu Dhabi, using several Zulfiqar ballistic missiles. Additionally, vital and important targets in Dubai were hit using several Sammad-3 drones,” Sare’e went on to say.

    Meanwhile, the spokesman added that “several military bases in the Saudi depth, particularly in Sharoura area, were targeted using several Sammad-1 and Qasef-2K drones, while vital and sensitive sites in Jizan and Asir were targeted using several ballistic missiles, scoring precise achievements.”

    “The Yemeni Armed Forces affirm full readiness in expanding its operations in the next phase, in order to confront every escalation with another escalation, and to renew our advice for foreign companies and investors in the UAE to leave the statelet now that it has turned into an unsafe place,” Brigadier General Sare’e said.

    The Spokesman underscored that the UAE “will remain a permanent target as long as it continues its aggression and blockade against the Yemeni people.”

    Apparently undeterred by recent strikes on UAE, the Giants just took the Harib district. It seems the houthis just can't stop them....

    Disgraceful statement by Russia. Yemen has the full right to self-defense, it's being bombed to hell right now. It's like expressing sympathy to Israel when it's being hit with a few bottle rockets from Gaza as its busy leveling the place.

    UAE praises Russia’s support following recent Houthi attacks — foreign ministry

    On January 17, the Houthis staged an attack with the use of drones and ballistic missiles at the infrastructure of ADNOC and a construction site near the capital city’s international airport

    CAIRO, January 25. /TASS/. United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan has praised Russia’s support following recent Houthi attacks at civilian facilities in the UAE, the UAE foreign ministry said on Tuesday, commenting on Al Nahyan’s telephone call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

    "H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has praised Russia’s supportive stance for the UAE, during the last session of the UN Security Council, on the terrorist attacks by the Houthi militia on civil facilities in the UAE," it said. "During Sheikh Abdullah’s call to Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov, he hailed the strong strategic partnership and friendship relations between the UAE and Russia, and the two friendly countries' keenness to further develop them across various fields.

    The Russian foreign ministry reported on Monday that the two top diplomats "discussed the current situation in and around Yemen in light of the continuing attacks by the Ansar Allah Houthi movement at civilian facilities in the United Arab Emirates."

    The UAE defense ministry said in the small hours on Monday that two ballistic missiles fired by the Houthi at Abu Dhabi had been intercepted and downed. On January 17, the Houthis staged an attack with the use of drones and ballistic missiles at the infrastructure of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and a construction site near the capital city’s international airport. Four people were killed and five wounded in the following fire at an ADNOC facility.

    Yemeni Houthis at their best: Capturing positions in Jawf area, burning MRAPs and technicals, taking trophies and giving their usual chant.

    Post  JohninMK Sun Jan 30, 2022 12:28 am

    Strategic analysis, not good.



    The recent operation by Saudi coalition on Shabwa and Marib provinces marks an agreement between the UAE and Saudi Arabia to rescue Mansour Hadi’s ousted government. But what concessions did the Saudis ceded to UAE to keep Marib?

    On November 12, 2021, an order was issued by the Saudi coalition command, which surprised many analysts and the media. In an unexpected move, they ordered the withdrawal of coalition forces from most parts of al-Hudaydah and the west coast of Yemen. According to this order, all the forces of the “National Resistance”, including the forces under the command of Tariq Saleh, Tihamah, Amaliqa and joint forces, evacuated the northern and eastern areas of al-Hudaydah and the western areas of al-Durayhimi, al-Jah and al-Tuhaita.

    The most reasonable theory was assumed the fact that this retreat is done to strengthen the Shabwa and Marib fronts, and these retreats will continue until the Hays-Khukhah region in Hudaydah province.

    Ansar Allah rapid advance on the Marib and Shabwa fronts had confused and weakened the Saudi coalition ground forces, and the coalition had not been able to stop Ansar Allah by sending al-Qaeda and ISIS militants. They needed trained and experienced forces to protect the city of Marib and keep Ansar Allah away from the city of Ataq, the capital of Shabwa province. With the Sudanese fleeing and the killing of mercenaries and elements of al-Qaeda and ISIS, there was no choice left for the coalition except al-Amaliqa (Giant Brigades) and Tariq Saleh forces.

    According to the latest estimates from the Yemeni fronts, the Saudi coalition divided its forces on the west coast as follows: Tariq Saleh forces remained south of al-Hudaydah province to prevent possible Ansar Allah attacks, and some of them moved to the northern and western fronts of Marib.

    The Tihamah forces, along with Tariq Saleh forces, carried out an operation called the “Golden Arc” around the town of Hays, which did not yield any specific results. The joint forces and the Amaliqa forces also entered the city of Ataq to retake western areas of Shabwa province.

    This transfer of forces was the result of a secret agreement between the Saudis and the UAE. The UAE appears to have achieved the keys of Shabwa province in exchange for helping the Saudis to keep the Marib city. Of course, this issue will be protested by the tribes loyal to “Mansour Hadi”, and there is a possibility of a clash between Mansour Hadi supporters and the southerners in Shabwa province.

    In any case, Amaliqa and joint forces under the command of Saudi Arabia and with the special support of the UAE entered the battles of Shabwa. In the first step, the UAE enticed the sheikhs of the tribes of Usayilan and Bayhan, and this led to the cancellation of peace agreements between Ansar Allah and tribes of Belharith. Thus, Ansar Allah set up a defensive line in the southern highlands of Beyhan and Ain district and prepared itself to counter a large-scale military operation by the Saudi coalition in the area.

    From January 11, the conflict was transferred to the north of the Harib district, and finally the Harib district center came under the control of Saudi coalition on January 24.

    According to the latest news from the Shabwa and Marib fronts, Ansar Allah’s first defensive line in the south of Beyhan remains stable. But the situation in the district of Ain is in favor of Saudi coalition.

    The Saudi coalition in the south of Marib seeks to break Ansar Allah’s second line of defense from the al-Ma’laa heights to Haniyeh mountain, as well as advancing on the axis of Abdiyah district. If this line is also broken, Ansar Allah’s positions in al-Juba district will be weakened and the way will be opened for the coalition to move forward. The fall of these areas will eventually force Ansar Allah to retreat from the al-Balaq heights and the southern areas of the city of Marib. Because they will be under a quasi-siege from the north, east and south.

    Simultaneously with the transfer of most of the Amaliqa forces to the central regions of Yemen, other forces under the control of the Saudi coalition, such as the Joint Forces and Mansour Hadi forces, have been deployed on the southern fronts of Marib. On the other hand, the Minister of Defense of Hadi government, Mohammad Al-Maqdashi, has visited the southern fronts of Marib, which marks the imminent operation of Mansour Hadi’s forces to retake the al-Balaq al-Sharqi heights, and Ansar Allah must prepare for a heavy battle on this front.

    In general, for Ansar Allah, the future is not very pleasant for the battles of the Marib and Shabwa fronts. Ansar Allah’s delay on the western and southern fronts of Marib, for a variety of reasons, provided an opportunity for coalition forces to regroup And the Saudis brought the UAE back on the battlefield with impressive concessions. The unification of the UAE and Saudi Arabia and the use of Amaliqa forces, etc. will turn the Marib war to an erosive one. This will save the Saudis from being removed from the Yemen equation in the short term, and will increase the UAE influence in the central regions of Yemen. But Ansar Allah also has effective leverages that can thwart the Saudi coalition plans as in the past. Time will prove everything.

    The Yemeni resistance targeted the Emirati operations room that runs the battle against Yemen from Shabwah.

    In further details, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yehya Saree announced targeting a field operation room for the Emirati enemy and their mercenaries in Shabwah.

    The operation deployed a ballistic missile and inflicted heavy human losses, including among the Emirati forces, Saree added.

    The spokesman also noted that the targeted operations room is the one that runs battles in Shabwah.

    A day earlier, the Yemeni resistance launched operation ‘Hurricane Yemen 3’ that targeted the depth of the Emirati statelet, Saree unveiled, adding that qualitative and important targets were hit in Abu Dhabi using several Zolfiqar-type ballistic missiles.

    Earlier operations ‘Hurricane Yemen 1’ and ‘Hurricane Yemen 2’, targeted several sensitive and important targets in the UAE, and the Saudi and Emirati depths respectively.

    The Yemeni resistance forces vow to keep their retaliatory operations as long as the war and blockade on the Yemeni people continue.

    Rather than peace in Yemen it looks like the UAE are buying this for defence against Houti missiles.

    But will it make a difference?

    They already have US systems... thing is even if they score 100% Pk those missiles will always be way more expensive than houti drones.

    Saudi have shown video of plenty air to air victories agaibst houti drones and they run out of missiles at the end which forced them to beg for more.

    UAE are begging nato members to protzct their aitspace. US and france have sent some fighters there. It's gonna be funny seeing them spend 1 billion worth of missiles.

    Even if the systems stop all missiles and drones at home. The houthis will just start to piling in more drones and missiles into targets in Yemen. They might stop attacks at home but not on the battlefield.

    Also going by USA other western systems they haven't exactly got a great track record. It also tells the houthis just how devastating those attacks were and how worried UAE are about such attacks. And no system is 100%

    The obvious solution is peace between different factions in Yemen . Until the people in Yemen fail in making peace , then foreign intervention takes place . The coalition bombing Yemen , do not represent interests of Arabs or Arab nations . And intensify a sectarian and regional conflict . As the solution is peace between different factions in Yemen . And since Arab nations national interests are not an issue here , but the devilish interests of Americans and Zionists . Then no matter how much damage is inflicted on these " Arab " states . No matter how many glass palaces they live in , comes under BM attack and crashes with their pride on the desert floor . It is not they who decide . Therefore any forces in Yemen that can stop fighting , should stop fighting . Should stop advancing . Freeze all operations . Start talking . Save their children from bombs and bullets . The only way now .

    USA, Israel, UAE and Saudi Arabia, don't care about peace, or children, all four of them have a well track record of killing civilians including thousands of children, and prefer keeping chaos and countries at war, especially the USA who profit from arms sales. It's almost some kind of recreational activity for these countries, they enjoy it.

    Sadly you are both right, which means this is just going to continue...

    Russia seems more interested in chasing sales to UAE than helping the Houthi... but then Russia never claimed to be the moral centre of the universe nor to be the worlds police.

    No,it's not Ukraine,it's Yemen.1,059 air strikes inflicted by the Saudi Arabia on Yemen in December 2021.The overall figure for January was higher.February is no different.On average, 3 air raids every 2 hours!
    And with all this, it is almost not mentioned in the media.


    Also the Houtis have a Mi-24 that they pull out of deep protection and use when they really need it.
