Yemeni media are reporting that Houthi forces have began an offensive in northern Hajjah Province on the Red Sea coast which is controlled by pro-Hadi forces.

The offensive was focused on the port of Midi. Although the town of Midi was not captured, the control of the Red Sea port will allow a new route for aid and supplies to Houthi forces.

Yemeni sources have claimed that Saudi jets have struck with at least 15 airstrikes to slow the progress being made.

This rare pocket of pro-Hadi forces in northern Yemen would be a huge blow to their war efforts against Houthi forces.

This is still to be confirmed by official forces.

The Houthis are doing God’s work. By attacking this port on the Red Sea, it is forcing the KSA to launch air strikes on military targets instead of attacking civilians.

Too bad the Houthis don’t have a few MANPADs.

But Yemeni army have much efficient SAMs… Well, they’d probably have to be overhowled/upgraded and are mostly converted into ballistic missiles with devastating effects on saudi camps… Wait until they’re able to target an airbase with such sweets and it’ll down more aircrafts they could with air defences… Nevertheless, I don’t know if they have old Sa-5 (S-200) in arsenal, but modernizing those could simply be really bad-ass, well, in fact even older Sa-3 they make their Qaheer-1 SSM from but upgraded S-200 can be a more than interesting cheap replacement to S-300/S-400 as it’s a very powerful long range… Read more »

If you could leave your evident islamophobia, you wouldnt compare shia islamists (the only islamists that could be tolerated) with that subhuman things called sunni islamists…
