Footage filmed in Al Tuhayta on Thursday shows the Yemeni National Army (YNA), backed by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, in the outskirts and within the city.

A convoy of military vehicles was seen thundering along desert roads, while trucks carrying militants made their way through residential areas. According to reports, the YNA is making advances in several strategic areas in the battle for the Yemeni port of Hodeidah.

Supported by Saudi-led coalition air support, YNA forces reportedly also made gains against Houthi forces in the fronts of Hajjah, Taiz and South Hodeidah.

The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in 2015 as an attempt to crush Houthi rebels in the region and reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The port of Hodeidah is Yemen’s main point of entry for food aid. With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to UN figures, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis amid its ongoing conflict.

The previous time they had gained too. Houthis let them in and then they killed them all.
Saudis always advance in twitter, Skynews, and Al Arabia.

The real battle is not fought out in the open roads or in urban areas, it is fought in the mountains where Houthis have an upper hand. None of these heavy trucks, tanks, BMPs and armor can go in the mountains and where there are steep gradients winding roads full of loose sand making it very difficult to drive and being so heavy these vehicles often get bogged down. For Houthis it is like shooting sitting ducks inside a barrel. The Anti Tank and Anti Armor missiles & RPGs have been used with devastating effect. They have deep fried many… Read more »

Yemen has been under siege from Air, See and ground. Only UN ships can go there and even UN ships are being inspected.
Even with that limited equipment, Houthis managed to bring UAE/Saudi invaders to their knees.

Houthis+Saleh seized power in Sa’ana through a coup, then assassinated Saleh.
Houthis are to Yemen what FSA is to Syria.
Saudis+UAE are not invaders, they were called for help by legitimate president Hadi.
Saleh was dictator for North Yemen from 1978 to 1990, then became dictator for the whole country from 1990 onto 2012.
Yemen still had huge weapons stockpile from the Soviet era and Iran smuggles lotsa weapons to Houthis even now… Submarines are pretty hard to control, baby!

Iran provides them their toophan which is a TOW copy.
Thus, I woudn’t call Iran a “free country” since it’s ruled by shitlamists.
Houthis seied power trough a coup d’état against president Hadi, if you have forgotten.

“Houthis are to Yemen what FSA is to Syria.”

Wrong the leftshit, the Houthis are much higher in number when you see the 2 millions demonstrating in Sanaa and hundreds of thousands demonstrating in others Yemenis towns http://almasirah.net/gallery/preview.php?file_id=14063
While the FSA were not even able to gather tens thousands of peoples in demonstration in the whole syrian war.

The Chiism is very different than Sunnism Islam which you seem don’t understand surely because you are an retarded leftshit. And you have no proof that Iran is smuggling weapons to Houthis since they have not common border as in Syria.

Hey, you’d better ask your grandfather which is also your father about what is left and what is right since you definitively lack education, thanks to your high level of consanguinity.

“The Chiism is very different than Sunnism Islam which you seem don’t understand”
=> Oh, it’s very easy to understand both since all religions are BULLSHÏTS, both can go to their hëll and so do you, mofo…

The leftshit Nazi is again here, you are accusing me of being nazi while you are the only member here to be against International laws and UN Laws and supporting the illegal annexation of territories by the fascist state of Israel, it’s funny isn’t it ? Israel is the only state in the world who defines itself as a race and faith – Jewish State. Think about if France would do the same thing “a Catholic white state”, think about how France will be treated by the world if France would do the same thing. The true Nazi and collaborationist… Read more »

Hey, go sleep with Marine, maybe you can suck some money from her before she goes bankrupt. Maybe you’ll even be allowed to sleep in St.Cloud forme Kommandantür.
You’ve learn well your lesson from your Goebbels : accusing others for your own crimes.
And frankly, a fanboy for a shitlamic republic that was recently caught trying to do a terrorist attack in my country and backs a nefarious Lebanese terror group who killed 58 of our Blue Helmets in Beirut using a SVBIED and many of our journos after having kidnapped them would just have a name under our skies :
TRAITOR!

You have no argument to defend your ideas because you are wrong the leftshit, let me laugh at you gauchiasse NAZI 🙂

Everyone know that France is in the bad side since De Gaulle was overthrown, France is the protector of Ahl Al Sunna and their allies with the Jihadists who are now attacking us and killing our citizens by hundreds.

Iran and the Shiites communities are the only rampart against the Ahl Al Sunna Jihadists taking control of the Middle East and also Europe. Without them Syria and Iraq would be a new biggest Afghanistan. Destroy Iran and you will deal with an invasion of millions of Ahl Al Sunna Jihadists who will also break in to Europe, destroy Iran and you will be in the first line to face millions of Jihadists in Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Turkey etc… France with your leftshit system will only bring to you the destruction and deaths as the West Roman Empire who fell… Read more »
