According to reports, at least three ballistic missiles, but probably as many as seven, hit a Saudi military camp near the Yemeni border on Wednesday night, with numerous casualties.
According to a statement from the Hutu armed forces in Sanaa, a series of ballistic missiles also hit targets in the Yemeni provinces of Ma’rib and Taiz.
The attack on Dhahran al-Janub, a Saudi base just across the border in the Saudi region of Asir, involved three ballistic missiles and “resulted in the killing and wounding of large numbers of Saudi enemy officers and soldiers,” the statement said, including Saudi First Regiment Commander Mansur Ali. al-Asmari.
Two ballistic missiles also hit a training camp west of Taiz, a province in southwestern Yemen deep in government-held territory, although the statement did not specify which coalition member used the training camp.
Targets along the eastern front in Maribor were also hit by a pair of ballistic missiles.
SEVEN YEARS OF RESISTANCE
Pro-Houthi social media users suggest that the number of ballistic missiles, seven, is a symbol of seven years of resistance to the Zaidi Shiite movement, which is formally called Ansarulah, but is usually named after the Houthi tribe at its core.
The events that led to the civil war began in September 2014, including the entry of the Hutus into Sanaa, which did not immediately force Hadi to step down. However, on November 9 of that year, after pressure from the United Nations Security Council to preserve peace, which included imposing sanctions on ousted former President Ali Abdullah Saleh for his pro-Hutus positions, the Houthis stepped out of the Hadi-orchestrated peace and partnership government. which was joined by Saleh’s party of the General People’s Congress. Hadi was also a member of the GPC.
The incident triggered Hadi’s overthrow two months later, which is why he fled to Riyadh seeking the help of the Saudi to return to power. A coalition led by Saudi Arabia, which included the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Morocco and the United States, launched a devastating air and ground campaign against the Hutus in March 2015.
GREAT BREAKTHROUGH IN THE MA’RIB OFFENSIVE
The operation takes place amid a prolonged Hutu offensive to take control of Ma’rib Governorate, an oil-rich province that is Hadi’s last stronghold in northern Yemen. Fighting has been intense in the last two months, and the Saudis launched a devastating air counteroffensive in mid-October.
However, on Monday, Hutu forces reported a major breakthrough in eastern Marib as their forces broke through government lines and reached 15 kilometers from the state border with Hadramaut Governorate.
Last week, the Pentagon announced it had received approval from the U.S. State Department for the potential sale of AIM-120 advanced medium-to-air missiles (AMRAAM) to the Saudi military, saying they were needed to intercept Hutt missiles and drones used to attack targets. within the kingdom. The United States announced earlier this year that it would end support for offensive operations.
