    Saudi air forces intercepted on Saturday a ballistic missile fired by the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen towards the Kingdom’s Jizan region, reported al-Arabiya Channel.

    This was the fourth rocket launched in three days, as a ballistic missile targeted populated areas in Saudi Arabia every day since Thursday, killing a civilian of Yemeni nationality and injuring 11 others.

    Saudi-led Arab coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said that a missile was fired from Yemen’s Amran region on Saturday evening and detected by the air defenses.

    The air defenses successfully intercepted and destroyed the missile. No one was injured in the incident, said Maliki.

    “This hostile act, carried out by the terrorist Iranian Houthi militia, proves that the Iranian regime is still providing them with advanced capabilities, in flagrant defiance of United Nations Security Council resolutions 2216 and 2231, with the main objective of threatening Saudi, regional and international security,” Maliki stated.

    Meanwhile, Medical and security sources in Marib said that the Houthi group shelled residential neighborhoods west of the city, as part of its retaliatory actions to compensate for field losses.

    Sources told Asharq al-Awsat that a number of Houthi missiles fell Saturday on the neighborhoods of Marib, east of the airport, killing two children and wounding two others, amid widespread condemnation and popular and official outrage.

    The group, based in Haylan mountains in Sarwah district west of Marib, launched rockets and missiles at the city, but the air defenses of the coalition supporting legitimacy intercepted the ballistic missiles, according to the residents.

    Several eyewitnesses said Saturday that Houthis launched an attack on the liberated village of Manzar, southwest Hodeidah, which led to the destruction of houses and the injury of civilians, just two days after targeting a bakery in the village which led to killing three people and wounding three others.

    Over the past three days, Houthis lost dozens of their members along with three of their senior leaders south of Hodeidah following clashes in al-Durahmi and the coalition’s bombardment in the area.

    In Saada, the media center of the Yemeni armed forces quoted the commander of the special forces brigade, Colonel Ahmed al-Musaabi, as saying that the forces "launched an attack in which they managed to liberate the village of al-Mashabih and the surrounding mountains.”

    Musaabi explained that following heavy clashes, the army liberated these sites, thus cuttnig the supply line of Houthi militias coming from Dwayeb mountain, which extended from the Maran mountain range to the village of al-Mashabih and al-Kharjai mountains.

    Colonel Musaabi said that the coalition airforce participated in several raids, killing and injuring several Houthi militants.

    Several Houthi militia elements were killed and injured Friday during clashes with National Army forces in al-Buqa district, north of Saada province.

    Commander in Saada Military Axis brigadier Salah Salem told September.Net that the army forces foiled an attempt by the militia to plant landmines at the international road between Buqa and Yatamah districts, killing and wounding a number of them, while forcing others to retreat towards “Adiaq” mountains.

    The Brigadier praised the role of the Saudi-led Arab coalition in supporting army forces in different battlefield fronts.

    Meanwhile, Yemeni military sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that government forces on Nahm front are preparing to launch large-scale operations in the coming days to complete the liberation of the directorate and progress towards the outskirts of Sanaa.

    The sources, who preferred not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media, said that the Chief of General Staff of the Yemeni Army, Major General Taher al-Aqili, oversaw the development of a plan of operations to be led by the recently-appointed commander of 7th military zone, Major General Mohsen al-Khubi.

    Aqili recently visited Nahm front and asserted the need to liberate the whole country from Houthi control.

    This is only because Saudi Arabia backs Hadi and started war with Yemen. Yemenis never attacked Saudi Arabia before 2015 when Saudi Arabia started war with Yemen.

    You should get your facts right..before you post next time..do your search about it..but just the fact that Houthis are subjects to Iran foreign policy in the region is enough to eliminate them as a threat to KSA and the region as a whole..

    Houthis would not attack Saudi Arabia if Saudi Arabia stops its war with Yemen. Saudi Arabia has 100 times stronger military than Yemen. Yemen don't want to fight Saudi Arabia. Yemen has no choice because Saudi Arabia wants Hadi as president and that is not acceptable to Yemen because Yemen do not accept foreign influence on its internal affairs.

    Check out my thread about Yemen uprising.

    You are tending to confuse Yemen with the Houthi Militia..while most Yemenis support the coalition, because they see in it their salvation.. the Houthis are considered a dangerous enemy militia .. it is a huge difference..

    Houthis never attacked Saudi Arabian soldiers before Saudi Arabia started war with Yemen in 2015.

    PissTV (PressTV) is better?

    Or are you trying to pretend (if you even can locate Yemen on a map) that a 24 year old terrorist cult that has waged several wars against the Yemeni state, which employs 1000's of child soldiers, which has planted over 1 million mines in Yemen, killed 1000's of civilians since they violently took power in Yemen (coup d'état) back in September 2014, are incapable of killing anyone despite their shelling having killed numerous people in the border lands (Yemeni expats included)?

    Speaking about border lands.

    Border region geography:

    The remaining 500-800 km is the Rub al-Khali desert which is another Wild West.

    This makes the borderlands of Syria and Iraq a joke in comparison which it is.


    ---------------------------------------------

    Less than 12.000 civilians have died in Yemen (killed by all parties in the conflict) after 3.5 years of civil war. Compare that number to Syria (40 times larger and that war only lasted 3.5 years more) and you do the math.

    This is war. Civilians die. In particular when you are fighting against an asymmetric enemy that hides among civilians deliberately.

    Of course the Wilayat al-Faqih terrorst Mullah's that rule your Mullahstan entity (using your language) could not care less as they do not border Yemen. They don't host a single Yemeni. They have not donated a single dollar to Yemen. They are content providing moral and military support to a terrorist cult from afar.

    I don't want to hear crying about Kurdish, Baloch, Arab etc. separatists targeting your border guards and army as long as your Mullah's are funding the largest terrorist proxy establishment in the entire region.

    Only in Ukraine there is detailed documentation for every person killed, including photo, date of death, place of death, circumstance of death.

    There is no documentation in Yemen and Syria, so it's at best guess work.

    LOL. Are you joking? Combined casualties in a conflict are always estimates, especially if as complex as the Yemeni one and if they have lasted this long (3.5 years).

    The casualties in Donbass are an estimate too. How many people are missing without their whereabouts being known? How many were kidnapped? 100's. Russians are hiding their casualties (military) and even more so the pro-Russian militias and volunteers/mercenaries.

    What you have posted is only the Ukrainian soldiers and who knows how accurate that is? Might be more casualties.

    Casualties (as reported by every media) in Yemen are between 20-40 times smaller than in Syria by all estimates. As is the destruction. That's evident.

    Trolling hard again? Has nothing to do with the West who are barely involved other than diplomatically.

    Using that logic the War in Donbass was orchestrated by the EU. They love seeing Eastern Europeans kill each other:lol:

    Europeans as whole love to kill each other. Almost 100 million were killed just in WW1 and WW2 alone. The most war-ridden region historically.



    Superboy, your trolling gets weaker and weaker by the day.
