The Saudi-backed Hadi loyalists are fleeing the provincial capital of Mareb after the Al-‘Abidah tribesmen launched an attack against their forces this morning in northern Yemen.

The Al-‘Abidah tribesmen began their assault by setting ablaze several military installations that belong to the Hadi loyalists.

Following the initial attack by the Al-‘Abidah tribesmen, their allies from the Al-Jalal tribe joined them in their battle against the Saudi-backed forces.

Preliminary reports from Mareb indicate that the Saudi-backed forces have been expelled by the local tribesmen; however, no pictures or video footage has been released to corroborate these claims.

If the Saudi-backed units lose Mareb city, they will be in serious trouble because they are currently on the defensive against the Houthi forces at the nearby Nihm District.

The world’s third most expensive military (Close to $90 billion per year, or 4 times Italy) is getting its a*s kicked by some tribesmen.

Should be a lesson for everyone wanting to buy from the corrupt American military industrial complex.

Not that the Saudi Army could do anything regardless of resources.
