Yemeni Tribesmen Capture Senior Saudi Officers in “lightning raid”



If you didn’t think the Saudi military is a joke, you have to watch the column.  A Saudi military convoy is taken down by what looks like the “lost boys.”  Flabbergasting.

RT/Moscow: Houthis have launched a major operation against Saudi forces near the kingdom’s southern region of Najran, capturing or killing a significant number of troops, their spokesman said. Riyadh has yet to confirm or deny the claim.

In a televised address on Saturday, the group’s spokesman said they’d inflicted heavy losses on the Saudi forces, capturing several high-ranking officers and a large cache of weaponry, including armored vehicles. He also claimed several hundreds of Saudi troops, including some high-ranking officers, have been killed or taken prisoner by the Houthis.

3 Saudi brigades fell in hands of Yemen’s Houthi fighters in Najran south of Saudi Arabia.

Hundreds killed/injured and detained. A huge quantity of weapon including armored vehicles. Saudi senior officers among the war prisoners.

The operation is the biggest ever.

Houthi military spokesman Yahya Saree’ announces a massive operation in Najran. I can’t help but think that he is being as loud as possible about military victories in order to drown out talk of negotiations with the Saudis. 

So far, no confirmation – or denial – of the major attack has been produced by Saudi Arabia.

The alleged casualties were inflicted on the Saudis during an operation dubbed ‘Victory from Allah,’ which was launched two days ago, the Houthis claimed. They added that three “enemy military brigades had fallen” in the attack that was conducted with the support of missile, drone and anti-aircraft units belonging to the group.

    Three Saudi brigades fall to a few ‘brigand’ Houthis is the stuff of comic books. But then everything about the deluded Saudis is a joke what ever way you assess their incompetent Western-organized military. They are nothing more than fodder for sheep- and goat-herders eschewing any and all action: cowards plain and simple. Simpletons, there’s the word. The ransom for a few generals and high ranking officers should be refused and only offered if the Houthis offer to keep them incarcerated. The scrap metal from all that military hardware should fetch a few bob to offset the loss of any ransom money. Or, just maybe, they will use it for a foray or two deep into Saudi-land where based on this experience will encounter nothing more than a general air of indifference in a country – some might say, that is ready to implode. Iranians – and undoubtedly there are a few, who have infiltrated the Houthi resistance will have a difficult time explaining this Houthi whoopee event on how so many Saudis were whupped to their Tehran handlers. “Surely a joke,’ they will say in dismay.
