NAJRAN, SAUDI ARABIA (12:20 P.M.) – The Saudi Royal Army is in serious trouble at Najran in southern Saudi Arabia, following the arrival of the Houthi forces at the southern outskirts of this strategic city.

According to local activists, the Houthi forces, backed by the Yemeni Republican Guard, have reached the last village at Najran’s southern perimeter, leaving only a small buffer-zone for the Saudi Royal Army before the anti-government forces reach the city.

The Houthi forces and their allies are now attacking the village of Nahuqa, where they are engaged in a fierce battle with the Saudi Royal Army and Hadi loyalists.

Should Najran fall to the Houthi forces in the coming weeks; this will require the Saudi Army to send in a large number of reinforcements to the Saudi-Yemeni border in order to recapture a large chunk of their country that has already been lost.

A civil war is long overdue in the land of Wahabi criminals.
It would be perfect Karma as well for the wretched $audi Royals.

This was anyhow 150 years ago Yemeni territory.
Sykes-Picot agreement has redrawn the border at UK wish and will, to foment tensions and war there (like everywhere else, when UK was involved).

They need to capture some of their big air bases to force their F15’s to fly longer distances so they can’t bomb as much. The F15’s have a range of 800 miles (about 1,200 km).

Yep, they need to take important cities & their airbases, like Najran & Jizan. Then Saudis will really start to tremble…
