Update #Yemen .
Die #Houthis und die Saudi-Koalition lieferten sich einen schweren Schlagabtausch.
Die Huthis attackierten Anfang der Woche Tanklastenwagen und Depos im Industriegebiet von #AbuDhabi , Hauptstadt der VAE.
Starke Feuer brachen aus, mind. 3 Menschen starben
(1/7)
Im Gegenzug flog die Saudi-Koalition (der die VAE auch angehören) schwere Luftangriffe auf die Hauptstadt vom #Yemen #Sanaa .
Laut dpa wurden mindestens 12 Menschen getötet.
Angeblich sollen bei den Luftangriffen auch Krankenwagen und Rettungskräfte attackiert worden sein.
(2/7)
Bemerkenswert ist jedes Mal, wie wenig die Flugabwehr der Saudi-Koalition gegen die primitiven Drohnen und Raketen der #Houthis unternehmen kann.
Solche Angriffe auf die Infrastruktur der Saudi-Koalition passieren mittlerweile fast schon routinemäßig👇

Update #Yemen .
Der überraschende Einsatz von Kampfhubschraubern durch die #Houthis löste in der Saudi-Koalition eine zeitweise Schockstarre aus.
Nun schlugen die Saudis aber zurück.
Innerhalb weniger Wochen vernichteten sie schon den dritten Kampfheli der Huthis.
#Jemen
(1/7)
Zur Erinnerung
Vor einigen Wochen setzten die #Houthis plötzlich Mi-35-Kampfhelikopter gegen die Saudi-Koalition ein.
Der plötzliche Einsatz von Kampfhelis ließ die Frontlinie zeitweise einbrechen, weil die Saudi-Söldner komplett überrumpelten wurden
(2/7)
Offensichtlich veranstalteten die Saudis nun eine regelrechte Jagd auf die Kampfhelikopter, um sie möglichst schnell auszuschalten.
Später intensivierte Saudi-Arabien seine Luftschläge auch an weiteren Abschnitten der Frontlinie gegen die #Houthis .

Update #Yemen .
Die #Houthis haben zum ersten Mal seit 2015 einen Kampfhubschrauber gegen die Positionen der Saudi-Koalition eingesetzt.
Ein Mi-35 der Huthis attackierte überraschend die pro-Saudi Söldner.
Woher die Houthis plötzlich einen Mi-35 ausbuddelten, bleibt unklar.
(1/5)
Der Angriff geschah jedenfalls so überraschend für die Saudi-Koalition, dass einige Abschnitte der Frontlinie in der Region #Marib eingebrochen sein sollen.
Die pro-Saudi-Söldner und Truppen sind nun mal nicht gewohnt, einen Gegner mit Luftwaffe vor sich zu haben.
(2/5)
Anfang des Monats gelang es den #Houthis außerdem, eine saudische F-15 mit einer alten sowjetischen "Kub"-Fluabwehrrakete zu erwischen.
Es heißt allerdings, der Jet habe seine Flugfähigkeit bewahrt und konnte zum Landeplatz zurückkehren.
F-15 gelten als ziemlich robust.

BIG: In what could be seen as first geopolitical victory for Houthi Ansarullah in #Yemen, a deal has been reached where #Sanaa International Airport will be reopened for civil and commercial flight.

siasat.com/yemens-sanaa-a…
The new peace deal includes:

1) Saudi-led coalition will fully reopen Sanaa airport & Hudaydah seaport

2) In return, Ansarullah will cease drone or cross border attacks inside Saudi territories

3) Most importantly: #Sanaa government will DIRECTLY ENGAGE with Saudi government
The new peace deal was officially signed by Yemeni national delegation leader Mohamed Abdul Salam and SPC president Mahdi al-Mashat on 8 June 2021, with the presence of Omani delegates (who represents on behalf of House of Saud).

Die #Houthis im #Yemen haben die nächste Drohne vom Himmel geholt, diesmal allerdings keine saudische, sondern eine US-amerikanische.
Sie schossen eine US-Drohne MQ-9 Reaper ab.
Unklar, mit welcher Rakete.
Die Luftabwehr der Huthis wird jedenfalls zusehends schlagkräftig.
(1/4)
Alle paar Wochen holen sie feindliche Drohnen vom Himmel ab, meist die von der #Saudi -Koalition.
Vermutlich nutzen die #Houthis hierfür vor allem iranische Abwehrsysteme, aber auch alte sowjetische Teile, die noch quer durch Nahost und Afrika geistern.
(2/4)
Apropos #Saudi -Koalition.
Die Lage für sie wird im Jemen von Woche zu Woche schwieriger.
Die strategisch wichtige Stadt #Marib könnte fallen, dann verliert die Koalition ihre letzte große Bastion.
Sie antwortet mit teils willkürlichen Luftschlägen.

#SaudiArabia hat wieder die Hauptstadt vom #Yemen bombardiert.
Wie auch schon zuvor bei ähnlichen Saudi-Bombardements erscheinen die Angriffe willkürlich, denn die eigentlichen Kämpfe finden über Hundert km entfernt statt.
Umkämpft ist die strategisch wichtige Stadt #Marib
(1/5)
Zur Erinnerung.
Im #Yemen wird gerade heftig um die strategisch wichtige Stadt #Marib gekämpft.
#SaudiArabia bombardierte nun mehrfach die jemenitische Hauptstadt #Sanaa , die eigentlich 120 km entfernt von der Front liegt.
Mehr dazu hier 👇
(2/5)
An der Front selbst schwankt das Kriegsglück. Mal rücken die #Houthis vor, mal werden sie zurückgedrängt.
Der Vorteil der Huthis ist vor allem ihre große Mobilität sowie ihre Motivation.
Sie kämpfen für ihr Land, die Saudi-Koalition betrachten sie als mordende Okkupanten.

1/4 The #Houthi militias' offensive in #Marib is an imminent threat not only to the peace process but most importantly to more than 2 million #IDPs in Yemen. This community fled the brutality of the rebels to have a life, which is why Marib alone hosts 60% of #IDPs across Yemen
2/4 Renewed large-scale Houthi attacks on #Marib, the largest home to #IDPs, puts hundreds of thousands IDPs under serious threat of another displacement. In other words, the Iranian-backed escalation will displace non-combatants who were already displaced by the #Houthi rebels.
3/4 Over the past 2 weeks, renewed Houthi violence deliberately shelled 4+ IDP camps in Marib to increase civilian damage, displacing more than 6000 IDPs & shutting down several #IDP camps. This once again affirms their deep-rooted disrespect for human lives & innocent civilians.

After a week of reinforcements & preparations, #Houthis/#Ansarullah restarted offensive to capture #Marib city. After some hours of combats, advances were reported in Meghdal, Jawf & Rahabah/Harib axis, while #YSF hold its positions in Sirwah, Raghwan & Jabal Murad axis so far.
Small #Houthi/#Ansarullah advances in Jawf, Raghwan, Sirwah & Jabal Murad axis. Battles are very hard in all Marib fronts as #YSF is putting heavy resistance. New map in the next hours...
Bloody day today between both sides in #Marib, specially Sirwah front. #Houthi/#Ansarullah retreated from some positions while #YSF is being very pressured in Jawf & northern Marib axis.

THREAD: Executive Director @MAlmadhaji writes that the future of the war in #Yemen will be determined in #Marib. As #Houthi forces seek to seize control of Marib’s oil and gas resources, local tribes lead the defense amid government disarray. sanaacenter.org/publications/a…
In recent weeks, the battle for #Marib has turned into a war of attrition, with the #Houthis throwing more fighters against multiple fronts. A recent reorganization of army forces has managed to partially stabilize the situation, but it remains tenuous.
By attacking southern #Marib, the #Houthis pitted themselves against one of the most cohesive and most powerful tribal blocs in the governorate, the Murad tribe. It and most other local tribes have a prominent sense of their Sunni identity, putting them at odds with the Houthis.

There are so many things to discuss about this battle in Qifa and Yakla against AQAP and ISIS terrorists. Yemeni anti-aggression activists have been talking about all day long, describing it as one of the most decisive liberation ever in Yemeni revolutionary war since 2015.
The jihadi elements has long history of presence in NW #Bayda even before Saudi aggression started. At one time, these Wahhabis (migrated mostly from Marib) once captured Rada'a town in 2014 near Al Quraishyah district, but the new Houthi authorities retaken it after long battle.
You can read this old article from early 2015, recalling how Houthi Ansarullah rebels were fighting AQAP terrorists in Rada'a while the corrupt Hadi regime in Sanaa were sitting idle doing nothing to root out Wahhabi terrorism.

1)An #AQAP leader was killed via U.S. drone strike in Wadi Ubaidah district of #Marib #Yemen, according to Yemeni news reports. The Wadi Ubaidah area is known as a long-standing stronghold for AQ militants in the country. Name of the leader was not stated.
2)Will be interesting to see which #AQAP official warranted the intel & military resources required to carry out a precise U.S. drone attack...AQAP in recent years has dwindled. As it stands now, top publicly known officials are leader Qassim al-Rimi and official Ibrahim al-Qosi.
3)Breaking: It appears that Qasim al-Rimi, leader of the Yemen-based #AQAP, was the individual targeted & killed in a U.S. drone strike on Saturday, January 25 in Wadi Ubaidah, east of #Sanaa - a longtime stronghold for the group. AQAP has yet to officially confirm his death.
