DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:00 A.M.) – Three of the Saudi Army’s military vehicles were knocked out by Yemeni insurgents on Wednesday after the warring parties battled it out at a military outpost in Najran governorate not far from the border with Yemen.

A string of images released by the Sanaa-based Yemeni government showed Houthi combattants firing anti-tank missiles at the Royal Saudi Land Forces (KSA), resulting in the destruction of a tank and two pickup trucks:

No survivors were reported following the attack.

The Houthis, represented by the Popular Committees, Republican Guard and tribal fighters, are active inside three of Saudi Arabia’s southern provinces, constantly harrasing army bases and checkpoints in retalition over the Gulf Kingdom’s ongoing military intervention in Yemen.

More proof if ever needed that ‘ Hundreds of billions of expensive and advanced Western weapons doth not automatically beget soldiers with the courage to use them ‘. 🙂

The criminal Al-Saud family gang does not care how many commoners they send to perish miserably. And the arms dealers are happy to sell a replacement tank etc.

Nicely roasted. Death to the minions of the satanic Wahabi cult. And Najran is Yemeni territory anyway. Got robbed in the past already by the predecessors of the current cult leaders.

The Saudi military is so weak that houthi with AK and RPG are embarrassing them and infiltrating the country and seizing military bases what an embarrassment! They probably thought the war in yemen was going to be a stroll instead it has turned into their nightmare, look how poorly the Saudis perform on the battlefield imagine if they were fighting an enemy like syrian rebels and jihadist they wouldn’t survive a month, but they’re happy to send said terrorist to other countries and support them, may God make your evil plans backfire on you ya al-saud
