Saudi Arabia has announced it is ceasing its bombing campaign against Yemen.

“The Houthis have in their arsenal a variety of missiles including long-rage Fatah 110 and Sam7, anti-tank Concors 72, anti-armored vehicle Tofan and Stinger, which can probably upset the military calculations of the Saudi-led coalition.”

Saudi Victory is Achieved as Houthi’s Hand Them Their Asses on a Platter

 

Damascus (VT):  The Press Office of the Secretary-General of the European Department for Security and Information, Ambassador Dr. HAISSAM BOU SAID, underscored that the Houthist have the ability to invade Saudi cities without a significant resistance by using far-reaching weapons, according to a military data revealed by the DESI.

He added that the escalation of rhetoric between the various political factions in Lebanon, namely between the Iran-backed Shiite “Hezbollah” and the Saudi-backed Sunni Future party will cause imbalance in the Lebanese society. Therefore, we call on all political parties to deviate from the regional conflict and take into consideration the interests of the Lebanese society and stay away from the axes involved in the regional conflict.

The Secretary General pointed out that the situation in the Yemen will put the entire region on the volcano crater and the European States look with great concern to this accelerated rhetoric.

Ambassador Dr. BOU-SAID said “the situation in Yemen cannot go on this way, and a political solutions must be found. He praised the call made by the Lebanese Speaker of Parliament Nabih Bari for a political solution to bring to an end to the unjustified war against Yemen.

Saudi Brigadier General Ahmed al Asiri is quoted as saying:

The coalition has ended Operation Decisive Storm based on a request by the “Yemeni government” and “President Abdrabbuah Mansour Hadi” (who is in exile in Saudi Arabia after resigning his office and fleeing the country)

The Houthi rebels who continue to rule the majority of the country are, according to Saudi Arabia, no longer a threat.  Saudi Arabia has praised the courage of their pilots and sailors who have had considerable success in bombing unarmed civilian populations and destroying as much of the infrastructure of Yemen as possible, aided by pilots from the Israeli Air Force, US Air Force refueling, missing planning and intelligence and a US naval blockade.

Saudis Fear Overthrow of the Monarchy

Saudi fear that internal opposition would join with rebel factions in Yemen has pushed the Kingdom to turn to carefully vetted troops loyal only to the Royal Family.  Some analysts believe that the Saudi move to side with ISIS and Al Qaeda in Yemen and its history of religious and financial support for these pro-Wahahi institutions, may help bolster the flagging popularity of the much criticized monarchy.

From Al Jazeera:

The coalition announcement came hours after Riyadh said it was preparing to send its elite National Guard to reinforce its border with Yemen.

The National Guard is regarded as the country’s best equipped military force, and until now has not been involved in the campaign.

Led by Miteb, the son of the late King Abdullah, the unit is recruited from tribes that have traditionally backed the Saudi royal family.
