The Saudi Royal Army has not fared well against the Houthis and the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard inside Saudi Arabia’s southern countryside; this has become evident with their lack of progress in the Jizan Region and the cities of Najran and Al-Rabou’ah.

On Saturday morning, the situation did not get any better for the Saudi Royal Army, as they were devastated by the Houthis and Republican Guard forces at the cities of Al-Rabou’ah and Najran.

It was the Saudi Army that launched the attacks on Al-Rabou’ah and Najran; and it was the Saudi Army that also retreated after suffering heavy casualties as a result of their poor positions and lack of battle discipline.

According to a Yemeni source, the Saudi Royal Army suffered just over 20 casualties during their failed counter-offensive against the Houthis and Republican Guard forces.

Making matters worse, the Houthis and the Republican Guard forces confiscated a large cache of weapons, ammunition, and armory from the Saudi Royal Army after they fled the battle for safer quarters.

Saudi Arabia is playing with fire. It has an Army well-equipped, but with a staff composed largely of mercenaries without motivations. In front of a large enemy infantry, the Saudis can easily go haywire. If Iran is angry, bitter pain will be for the Saudis.
