The Saudi Royal Army and the Arab Coalition suffered their most embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Houthi forces last week, losing over 500 military personnel during their assault on the Midi District in the Hajjah Governorate.

As a result of their losses and failed advance, the Saudi regime was forced to offer a ceasefire deal with the Houthi forces in order to save face after over-hyping this large offensive in northwestern Yemen.

Both sides ultimately agreed to a temporary ceasefire in the Midi District, despite the ongoing battles in southwestern Yemen and the nearby Al-Jawf Governorate.

In addition to the ceasefire at Midi, the Saudis also agreed to back off the Yemeni Army controlled city of Rabuah after failing to advance over the weekend.

As part of the ceasefire agreements in Midi and Rabuah, both sides will exchange prisoners and the enemy casualties.

Ceasefire? Saudi’s should withdraw and sue for peace.

Why would the Yemenis accept a ceasefire when they’re dominating the useless Saudis?

The Yemenis, Syrian Army and Armenians– badly outnumbered and badly equipped– used something old fashioned to save their countries– heroism. I absolutely love it when tiny underdogs whip bullies.

Saudi Doenmeh have to pay for damages.
1 dead person in US is valued by judges at 10m to 20m (ducduckgo some judgments yourself).
The same value should be also calculated for a Yemenite life.
So Saudis, pay the damages now.
