DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:46 PM) – As fierce battles between the Houthis and Saleh’s loyalists engulf the every corner of the impoverished Yemen, the Saudi’s have not had a moment of doubt on which side to take in this feud.

Countless airstrikes struck Houthi concentrations across Sana’a to include three airstrikes directly targeting Sanaa’s International Airport. Houthis find themselves battling their former allies in central Yemen as well as safeguarding the fronts against the invading Saudi forces in multiple regions and axes.

Many observers believe that Saleh’s actions have been in full coordination and with full knowledge of the Saudis and Emiratis as they seek to dethrone the Houthis from Sana’a- whom they believe are Iran’s long arms in the Arabian peninsula.
