DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:00 A.M.) – The Houthi forces, backed by the Yemeni Republican Guard, reportedly captured another Saudi military base in the southwestern province of Asir after a fierce battle on Friday night.

According to the Yemen-based Al-Masirah TV, the Houthi forces and their allies seized the Al-Niswa Military Base after overrunning the Saudi Army’s defenses on Friday night.

Scores of Saudi Army soldiers were reported dead by Al-Masirah TV on Friday, adding to the Kingdom’s plight in the war against the Houthi forces and Yemeni Republican Guard.

In addition to the several military personnel killed, the Saudi Army also lost a huge cache of weapons while fleeing the advancing Houthi forces on Friday.

What a bunch of useless tossers. They spend hundreds of billions on weapons and can’t even stop their own country being invaded by a rag tag militia. Fingers crossed the Americans won’t lift a finger to help them this time. This is brilliant.

There is a good part of Yemeni-army that became ally to Saleh, not only a rag tag militia… And… Don’t think things go so well for Houthis : KSA or AQAT control more than the 3 quarters of the country, although the most of it is either desert or (desertic) mountains… Now, Houthis, although being Shias, are mostly as sectarians as Saudis…
