YEMEN: THE SAUDI FIASCO

yemen-houthis-1024x683Operation “decisive Storm, “which was conducted against Yemen since March 26th by the Saudi led coalition with the support of the United States, is about to turn into a fiasco.

 

Remember that this aggression violated the sovereignty of this country, the poorest in the region, in order to keep the Saudi –Zionist stranglehold on it and deny it any hint of independence, contrary to the pretext advance which was to stop the extension of the “Shiite Houthi rebels” in the Yemeni southern cities after taking control of Sanaa and the cities in the north.

 

Indeed, following the changes which have occurred in Yemen after the revolution of September 21st, 2014 which brought the Houthis to legally seize power without bloodshed, the country seemed to have decided to dispense of the Saudi guardianship in order to conduct an independent policy and join the axis of resistance against Zionism and Western imperialism.

 

Unfortunately, the United States and the Zionist entity didn’t see it that way, and therefore instructed their Saudi vassal to do their dirty work, triggering operation “decisive Storm”, which essentially consisted of bombing defenseless civilians, in line with what is taught in “the Israeli school” of military strategy.

The Results of the operation is at least 6,000 dead and 28,000 wounded, including many civilians, while 2.3 million people have been displaced, according to UN estimates (probably underestimated) and the complicit silence of the international community.

 

On the ground, a coalition of more than ten countries, aided by the United States and other Western states have not made a breakthrough. And the popular Yemeni forces (Army and popular committees close to AnsarAllah) still control between 60% and 70% of the territory, with the exception of Aden which is under the influence of Al Qaeda, since the tactical withdrawal of the AnsarAllah forces from this southern town in the country in July.

 

Yemeni Missiles and rockets targeted the positions of the Saudi army daily, who lost the battle of Bab El Mandeb, and failed to advance to Maarib and Taiz, despite soldier reinforcements from several countries including Sudan and Colombia.

 

Operation “decisive Storm”, which was to last only a few days and stop the advance of the so-called “Shiite militias”, has not achieved its objectives, on the contrary, it  found  itself facing a new internal front  created by Yemeni forces on its borders, in Jizan, Al-Assir, and deeper in southern Saudi Arabia namely  Najran, whose conquest is imminent.

Thus, in response to its aggression and deadly raids by the aircraft coalition which are still causing more civilian casualties, Saudi Arabia now finds itself facing two wars: one in Yemen and one on its own territory. Thus, entire towns and Saudi villages became under the control of the Yemeni resistance forces. While twelve military bases were taken, the Saudi army lost hundreds of soldiers, dozens of vehicles, tanks, armored, and aircraft and warships.

 

In recent weeks, the military operations against the aggressors have intensified, culminating in the missile attack on December 14th on the command center of the coalition forces in Bab el Mandeb Strait, killing 152 including 42 members of the Blackwater mercenaries’ society (including their Colombian commander), the military commander of Saudi Arabia, and several UAE commanders.

 

Thus, despite all its resources, facing the drive and determination of the Yemeni people, Saudi Arabia has already lost this war.

Yet many had warned that the tribal and complex nature of the Yemeni society as well as the geographical particularities of this country, make ​​it impossible to submit through any external military intervention attempt. It seems that Riyadh has come to realize that the burning has come back to engulf Saudi Arabia… 

 

The Kingdom has implicitly admitted its failure in displaying its willingness to end the war if the popular forces and the Yemeni army withdrew from the Saudi borders and don’t oppose the resignation of President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi and his government based in Aden. It also renounced other conditions laid out thus far, including the withdrawing of “Houthi militias” from cities, and the surrender of their weapons, and admitted its pitiful defeat, which was predictable, by not accomplishing any of its stated objectives.

 

The Anti-Zionist Party once again salutes the heroic resistance of the Yemeni people which is determined to defeat the Saudi assailant who seems to finally realize their terrible strategic mistake.

Their alliance with the US-Zionists having inflated their confidence, the Saudi vassal thought it was sufficient to blindly bomb innocent civilians in order to get Yemen to submit, they also under estimated the strength and spirit of the resistance which defeated the Saudi vassal every day.

After the predictable debacle, one shouldn’t wait for an equally predictable and imminent fall of this criminal realm that now seems inevitable…
