Sanaa, Yemen (12:50 P.M.) – Qatar is the latest Gulf country to mobilize their forces to help the Saudi-led Coalition after four of their own soldiers were killed yesterday in Yemen.

According to a report released by Al-Jazeera News today, approximately 1,000 Qatari soldiers, 200 armored vehicles, and 30 Apache helicopters were deployed to Yemen to participate in the Saudi-led aggression.

“The troops are now reportedly heading to Yemen’s Maareb province, to join the Saudi-led coalition already fighting in the area,” Al-Jazeera added.

More Qatari servicemen will be deployed to Yemen in the near future, the report concluded.

The reason for the influx of Qatari soldiers is still unknown; however, it is likely to do with yesterday’s situation that involved several Qatari military personnel.

They sent thousands before, and will have to send new thousands after, but Yemen will defend, indemnify and take half of KSA at the end. This little evil monarchy (Qatar) will have to “pay” (like they bigger brothers from Saudi dynasty) for all the evils produced in this century.

Hope so with all my heart, the Arabic peninsula oilcrazies (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrein, U.A.E….) must have the worst punishment posible, something that leaves ISIS methods as child play, they deserve that…

Well, total army is only a dozen thousand… They may have manpower shortage very soon… In fact, if the US stay neutral, the country could be overthrown in a matter of hours by people living there : 1.5M expats (many in disguised slavery! +1 million of indians!) vs 278,000 Qataris! India could get huge oil and gas reserves and BTW overthrow an ugly regime with sharia-shit. A “colour revolution” would be very easy to foment and if India comes to rescue their citizens, KSA won’t dare to intervene.

You’re wrong : Yemeni army has a VERY serious strategic missile battalion enough qualified to convert old soviet SAMs into ballistic missiles… Half a ton of warhead falling on you @+Mach 5 and blowing 350kg of fragments with 150kg explosives @3-10m high may just have a kill radius of 200 to 300m… Pretty effective against an army camp… I’m not saying Houthis ain’t bad ass but you have old commies kicking the fascist regime of KSA’s ass with customised old soviet technology. Sophisticated weapons are pretty effective but you have to learn to use it and… You have to want… Read more »

Qatar has only a 8500 ground force…
And more of half people living in Qatar are indians and treated like shit…
Maybe Indian Navy should consider doing some drills in the red sea. Some riots may begin, qataris will fastly shoot at indians then Indian Navy intervene. Unfortunately, both al-Thanis and high clerics may become victims of collateral damages… I’ve heard the new flag makes wahabbists go totally bonkers!
