BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Houthi forces launched a big assault against the Saudi-backed troops in western Yemen this morning.
Using both missiles and armed drones, the Houthi forces struck several areas that are under the control of the Southern Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard.
According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, their armed drones struck the Saudi-backed troops along the western shoreline in the Mocha region and as far north as the Hodeidah provincial border.
The Houthi forces also utilized their ballistic missiles to pound the fortifications of the Saudi-backed troops.
These attacks would pave the way for the Houthi forces to launch a powerful ground assault this morning near Hodeidah Municipal Airport and Hays District.

They’re the ones who started this war with the help of resigned unpopular former prez. Saleh, doing a coup to re-install him and later assassinating him.
Yemen is a democracy (well, not a greatly working one, that’s OK), Houthis did a coup on a legitimate government and supported a despot (Saleh) which they assassinated when he started to imply in a peace process.
Heroes? Or proxies to a foreign power, namely Iran, wrecking havoc in the country for geopolitical purposes?

What disturbs me a LOT about many articles about Yemen is that there are very often NO confirmation of events coming from other sources… Some events even are VERY dubious : the alleged attacks on Dubai intl. airport : you simply can’t cover up smth like this : Dubai is one of the biggest civilian hubs in the MENA. Such an attack would even infuriate the UN and would constitute a war-crime. The strike on Khamis Musait air-base seems very dubious too : this AFB has the city on the other side of the road. In both cases, there’d be… Read more »

The master of lying without evidence complains about this.
P.S. Where is your proof for the last statement?
