Footage has emerged of Houthi tribesmen firing anti-tank missiles upon Saudi Arabian checkpoints near Najran, a city just ten kilometers from the border with Yemen.

Two Humvees and a tank are hit and presumably destroyed.

In the video below, Houthi fighters, whom are supported by Iran, follow up the succesful ambush by yelling “death to America – death to Israel”:

Saudi Arabia has played an important role in propping up President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who leads a Yemeni government based in Aden. Meanwhile, Houthis also lay claim to state power after they seized control of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, in 2015.

Funny fact : Houthis are backed by US DoD too and they have a nice partnership in the fight against AQAT and Daesh but they say “death to America”.
There’s a very strange duality between DoD and DoS then between DIA and CIA. About USAF/US-N airstrikes, a lot of pilots complaint about ROEs that simply make them in a situation where they can’t do their job at fighting the terror gangs! US politicians seem to have serious issues in their brains…

You should realize that if the USA backs Houthis so it is just Allah’s Will, not Americans.

“Houthis are backed by US Dod”??!! funny fiction indeed. Would you care to substantiate your claim with some evidence? and what the Saudis think about this partnership?
