Jizan, Saudi Arabia (12:10 P.M.) – The Houthi forces, backed by the Yemeni Republican Guard, continued their wide-scale advance inside Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, capturing more territory from the Arab Coalition in the Jizan Region.

According to Yemen-based Al-Masirah News Agency, the Houthi forces and their allies repelled an Arab Coalition attack on the recently captured village of Al-Qarn; this prompted the anti-government forces to launch a counter-attack in the Al-Khabuah area.

Not long after the Arab Coalition’s failed assault, the Houthi forces and their allies imposed full control over Al-Dafiniyah after a short battle on Wednesday.

Over the last 24 hours, the Houthi forces have managed to seize three villages in the Al-Khabuah area, while also killing a large number of Saudi soldiers.

The Yemeni Republican Guard’s official Twitter account reported that 4 Saudi Army vehicles were also destroyed during this counter-attack by the Houthi forces.

The Saudis are just Zionist mongrel dogs exposed since the Houthis blew away much of the Blackwater mercenaries. The American gringo scum are stretched.

It seems like Saudi Arabia is practically there for the taking. It can’t defend itself much when attacked. Hopefully it will encourage others, besides the Houthis, to attack it or join with the Houthis. Someone needs to stop it from killing Yemeni children and supporting terror in Syria and other places.

(The Prophet[PBUH]) said, “O Allah! Bless our Sham(syria) and our yemen.” People said, “Our Najd(Saudi Araba) as well.” The Prophet again said, “O Allah! Bless our Sham and yemen.” They said again, “Our Najd as well.” On that the Prophet said, “There will appear earthquakes and afflictions, and from there will come out the side of the horn of Satan.” (Book #17, Hadith #147, Bukhari)
