BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The Ansarallah forces have announced the capture of the capital city of the Al-Jawf Governorate, following a week-long battle with the Saudi-backed Islah militias in northern Yemen.

According to the Ansarallah forces, the pro-government Yemeni military and Islah militias withdrew from the administrative capital of the Al-Jawf Governorate, Hazm, after nearly besieging the aforementioned groups on Sunday.

The loss of Hazm marks the first time in over two years that the Saudi-led Coalition has lost a capital city in Yemen.

Furthermore, the loss of Hazm could not come at a worse time for the Saudi-led Coalition, as the Ansarallah forces are still advancing towards the administration capital of the Marib Governorate.

Should the Ansarallah forces captured Marib city, this would mean that the Saudi-led Coalition no longer controls any capitals in the northwestern part of Yemen.

For now, there are ZERO info confirming or recouping this “performance”… Since the Houthis have a huge tendency with publishing fake news, even endorsing others actions like the ARAMCO attack which was performed by Iran, I’m still waiting for proofs… Any way, the Houthis are for Yemen what al-Nusra is for Syria. The only pity is that we’re not launching massive air campaigns in order to send all these religious fanatics to their so-called Allah, which’s existence has never been proven BTW (as it’s the case for all scams people call “religions”)… The fact is with the Houthis is that… Read more »

There is indeed a difference between the Houthis and al-Nusra/HTS. The Houthis are native to the Yemen. They are basically defending themselves from the Saudi/Emirati invaders who are nominally supporting a Yemeni Government run by Hadi. Hadi, who until quite recently was under house arrest in Saudi Arabia, was effectively installed by the Saudis as their puppet. On the other hand, al-Nusra in Syria are mainly made up of foreign-backed imported jihadis used to attempt to ouster President Assad; break up Syria for their GCC/Turkey/USA backers; and, as in Iraq, to allow certain countries to steal Syrian oil reserves. That… Read more »

You’re really dumb : Houthis are jihadists too! Houthis and ISIS are the two sides of the same coin… And I’d love to see KSA getting a constitution similar to Rojava 🙂 Was it up to me, Islam would have ceased to exists for hundreds of years now, since, as requested by Hulagu Khan, France would have allied with the Golden Horde and walked on Mecca just like Hulagu Khan walked on Baghdad. Using the word Daeshbags in my nickname is clearly an insult towards these cockroaches since it’s a play on the word “douchebags”… You obviously should know what… Read more »

Oh shut daeshbags-lover you are an evil little Israeli who pretends to be against jihadis in order to serve your disgusting anti-Iranian and pro-Zionist agenda. Yet most of us see through that BS, and your pathetic rant wont change that fact. You lost in Yemen and you lost in Syria. Also nothing says ISIS and Al-Qaeda more then the Saudi regime, with their medieval penchant for brutal public execution, torture, murder, lack of democracy, and sectarian religious extremism. Then again you Israelis where big in arming, supplying and even treating wounded salafist jihadist in southern Syria. Your full of it… Read more »
