Israeli Fighter Jets Join Saudi Arabia in War on Yemen


TEHRAN (FNA)- Israel’s fighter jets have taken part in the Thursday Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemen, sources in Sanaa disclosed on Friday.


“This is for the first time that the Zionists are conducting a joint operation in coalition with Arabs,” Secretary General of Yemen’s Al-Haq Political Party Hassan Zayd wrote on his facebook page.

He noted that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had issued direct orders for the Israeli air force to send fighter jets to the Saudi-led air raid on Yemen.

Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes against Yemen and killed, at least, 25 civilians early Thursday, one day after the US-backed Yemeni president fled the country.

Also, 15 more people were killed and injured in a second round of massive attacks by the Saudi Arabian fighter jets in the Northwestern Yemeni city of Sa’ada on Friday.

Yemen’s al-Massira TV reported that the Saudi air force targeted the Yemeni’s civilians who were shopping in a market.

Five Persian Gulf States — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait — backed by the US have declared war on Yemen in a joint statement issued earlier Thursday.

US President Barack Obama authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to the military operations, National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said late Wednesday night.

She added that while US forces were not taking direct military action in Yemen, Washington was establishing a Joint Planning Cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate US military and intelligence support.

Riyadh claimed that it has bombed the positions of the Ansarullah fighters and launched attacks against the Sana’a airport and the Dulaimi airbase.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is attacking Ansarullah positions, Saudi warplanes have flattened a number of homes near Sana’a international airport. Based on early reports, the Saudi airstrikes on Yemen have so far claimed the lives of 25 civilians with more deaths feared, Yemeni sources said.

The Saudi aggression has received growing international condemnation as it is pushing the region and the world into an unprecedented fast-growing war as its ISIL mercenaries are on the brink of complete annihilation in Iraq and Syria.


  1. Once again the good guys get bombed – and the western powers immediately throw in their support and praise with the bad guys. The Saudis are bombing the only people in the area that have been fighting the ISIS groups and keeping THEM out of the area. Why am I not surprised about this.

  2. Its getting a bit confusing, Yemen was coup d’tated and a puppet placed in power, now that guy has fled because of his crimes and Shia resistence to him usurping power and then crimes while there.

    The Shia wants the original leader back (or someone like him) who was displaced by the coup. The outsiders (including present coolition insist on their puppet back or another of their choice.

    Iran and Shia’s want an election?, the others say, take what we give you and like it or else. We’re at “or else” now.

  3. The masks have fallen. Looks like the stage is setting for showdown between “Axis of Evil” (a.k.a. whoever London and Washington point at) and “New Allied Forces” (a.k.a. allied sociopaths that failed to stabilize the world after the WW2 and went about wealth of nations). Good luck everybody! And Godspeed..
