The Yemeni War has spilt over into Saudi Arabia and as a result, the Saudi regime that was once on the offensive inside of Yemen is now on the defensive as the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and their popular committees – specifically, the Houthis – are pressing deeper into enemy territory.
On Monday morning in the southern Saudi Arabian province of Jizan, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis seized a strategic military center inside the city of Radeef after killing several enemy combatants from the Saudi-led Coalition Forces that are made-up of primarily foreign mercenaries and soldiers from the Gulf states.
In addition to their success inside the Jizan Region, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis have finally seized the Kofal Camp (Brigade 312) in the Marib Province of Yemen after besieging this imperative site for two months; this loss now leaves the Hadi loyalists in a vulnerable position at the Marib Dam.
Currently, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces are attempting to retake the Saudi city of Rabuah in the Asir Governorate from the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis; however, they have been so far unsuccessful.
Adding to the plight of Saudi Arabia, their allies from Al-Qaeda (Ansar Al-Shari’ah) have turned on the Hadi loyalists inside the important port-city of Aden and several other sites in southern Yemen; this battle is likely to intensify in the coming days.
