Intelligence Source: Over 4,000 Saudi mercenaries killed in Yemen war

(ShiaPost, 19/3/2016) ~ Over 4,000 Saudi mercenaries, including 178 commanders, have been killed during the year-long Riyadh-led war against Yemen, a Yemeni intelligence source said on Thursday.

“At least, 4,000 Saudi mercenaries have been killed during the savage aggression of the Saudi-led Arab coalition against Yemen in the past one year,” the source said.

He said that tens of the Saudi mercenaries killed by the Yemeni army and popular forces have been Sudanese, Djiboutian, and even Chechnian nationals, adding that 178 commanders are seen among the Saudi death toll in Yemen war, “a fact that has always been kept secret the Saudi media”.

His remarks came after the Yemeni army and popular forces destroyed the Saudi military positions and bases in Ma’rib province with a ballistic missile, killing tens of the kingdom’s forces.

The Qaher-I ballistic missile hit Saudi Arabia’s Tadavin military base in Ma’rib province in Yemen on Wednesday, Arabic-language media outlets reported.

Early reports indicate large casualties on the Saudi forces in the missile attack. The Saudi army and its coalition members have lost, at least, over a hundred troops each time they have come under a ballistic missile attack by Yemen.

The Yemeni forces have fired tens of missiles on the military positions and gathering centers of Saudi-led coalition so far, killing hundreds of Saudi forces and injuring many more.

In a relevant development last week, the Qaher-I missile hit al-Khanjar military base in al-Jawf province, destroying their military hardware and equipment.

The Saudi-led forces’ armored vehicles were destroyed during the Yemeni missile attack.

Scores of Saudi forces were killed and injured in the Yemeni missile strikes.

In late February, a Yemeni Tochka missile hit the Saudi-led coalition’s military base in Ma’rib province, killing tens of coalition servicemen, including 8 senior Saudi and UAE officers.

A Commander of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement confirmed firing of the ballistic missile at the Ma’as military base in Ma’rib in Central Yemen.

He noted that at least 48 Saudi forces were killed in Yemen’s Tochka missile attack.

Also on February 3, the Yemeni forces rained down a barrage of missiles at the Saudi forces’ military tower in Al-Dokhan region in Jizan province in Southern Saudi Arabia.

Al-Dokhan tower was reportedly destroyed in the Yemeni missile attacks in Jizan as eyewitnesses said that they had seen smoke rising from it.

The Yemeni army and popular forces regained control of Al-Khurma region in Asir province after they destroyed two arms depots and other military hardware of the Yemeni forces in the region.

Meantime, the Yemeni army’s artillery units pounded Malhama military base in Jizan province. The Saudi troops started fleeing their base as soon as they came under the missile attack.

Mansour Hadi-Affiliated Militia Commander Killed in Ma’rib

(FNA, 19/3/2016) ~ A field commander of the militia groups loyal to fugitive president Mansour Hadi was killed along with tens of other militants in Ma’rib province.

“Major General Omar al-Hazanti, the commander of the militants affiliated to Mansour Hadi, was killed in Ma’rib,” Ali al-Houthi, a commander of Yemen’s revolutionary committees, told FNA on Saturday.

According to Houthi, 36 other terrorists were also killed in the Western parts of Ma’rib province in operations which also took the lives of 5 Yemeni army soldiers.

Earlier this week in Ma’rib, the Yemeni army and popular forces destroyed the Saudi military positions and bases with a ballistic missile, killing tens of the kingdom’s forces.

The Qaher-I ballistic missile hit Saudi Arabia’s Tadavin military base in Ma’rib province in Yemen on Wednesday, Arabic-language media outlets reported.

Ansarullah to Present Documents of Mansour Hadi’s Crimes to Security Council

(FNA, 19/3/2016) ~ Yemen’s judiciary system is in possession of documents and evidence showing fugitive President Mansour Hadi’s involvement in massacring the Yemeni people, an Ansarullah leader said on Saturday.

“The Yemeni judiciary has some documents which prove Mansour Hadi’s involvement in leading the war and forming terrorist groups that have killed innocent civilians,” Ali Abdulmajid, an Ansarullah politburo member, told FNA.

“Considering the evidence, Hadi can no more deny his role in destroying the country with his intelligence and logistic support,” he added.

Abdulmajid underlined that Ansarullah will present the documents to the UN Security Council for Hadi’s prosecution.

Yemen has been engulfed in a military conflict between the former government and militants and al-Qaeda and ISIL terrorists on one side and Ansarullah (Houthi) movement and the army and popular forces on the opposite side for over a year now. Since March 2015, a Saudi-led coalition has been carrying out airstrikes on Yemen in support of Mansour Hadi.

The rising death toll among the civilian population prompted the United Nations to mediate a ceasefire between the Saudi coalition and the popular forces in December for the time of the intra-Yemeni talks in Geneva, although hostilities have continued.

Armed but Impotent; Riyadh Faces Military Defeat in Yemen

(Alwaght) ~ Despite being armed to the teeth, the Saudi-led coalition has thus far failed to accomplish the objectives Riyadh had set out at the beginning of the 11-months war: undermining the Houthi Ansarullah movement and the reinstalling the former regime—which acquiesced to Saudi demands under resigned President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi—to power.

Recent field developments show that the Saudi forces and their allies have lost the upper hand in the war since the Ansarullah movement took over the capital Sana’a. The ensuing fighting has been the after-effect of that strategically significant event.

Just on Monday, the number of Saudi soldiers captured by Yemeni fighters in the west-central Ma’rib province in just two days reached 101.

The Yemeni army, backed by Popular Committees loyal to the Houthi Ansarullah movement, detained 71 soldiers early on Monday and 30 others on Sunday in the same area.

Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah news website reported the operations saying that the captured soldiers were on their way to Ma’rib to boost Saudi presence when they were caught.

The report also mentioned that Yemeni forces killed dozens of troops loyal to the Saudi regime in the city and destroyed four of their military vehicles.

Meanwhile, the Saudi-controlled Sahn al-Jin military base was showered with missiles and witnessed the killing of dozens more.

Air Strikes

While Yemenis continue to carry out retaliatory attacks, Saudi warplanes linger in the Yemeni sky.

The Saudi-led alliance attempts to balance its failure on the ground with brutal airstrikes. Several airstrikes hit the western Sana’a province including two on the Arhab district and another two against Hafa and Nahdain in al-Sabeen. The raids inflicted damages on several buildings.

Saudi fighter jets also raided the south-western city of Ta’iiz four times causing destruction in the area.

The aerial aggression additionally struck the town of Herz in the north-western province of Hajjah.

Infighting

Meanwhile, in the southern city of Aden bloody clashes broke out between militants from the so-called Popular Southern Resistance group and soldiers guarding the Maashiq presidential palace.

At least six guards were killed in the skirmishes and many others wounded after the militia group was blocked from entering the palace over unpaid medical bills for injured members.

In March 2015, Saudi Arabia launched a war of aggression against Yemen. However, aside from weapons and equipment, Riyadh has little military prowess, specifically manpower which determines a military’s strength in conventional warfare, and thus involved other countries to join the battle. Mostly relying on airstrikes against civilian-populated areas, the Saudi-led coalition has done little to advance on the ground where it has been met with resistance.

Since then, at least 8,300 people, among them 2,236 children, have been killed but in spite of the high casualty rate, the massive destruction, and the straining of resources, Yemenis continue to face their aggressors with resilience.
