    • Tornado multirole combat aircraft crashes in Saudi Arabia

      The Panavia Tornado multirole combat aircraft of the Royal Saudi Air Force crashed at 04:41 AM local time in Asir Province on 12 July.

      According to Arab Coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki, a Saudi Arabian Royal Air Force Tornado jet came down in Asir region.

      “The aircraft was returning from a training mission when it crashed in the southern region due to a technical failure,” said Al-Maliki.

      Assir is on the Yemeni border, so presumably, the aircraft was felled by the type of technical malfunction that occurs when it is struck by a surface-to-air missile.

      Saudi Arabia’s has issued a royal pardon for all soldiers deployed in Yemen, a statement published by Saudi Arabia’ s government news agency SPA earlier in the week.

      The royal pardon covers all “military men” who have taken part in “Operation Restoring Hope”.

          • The Yemeni have quite a few M163 & M167 systems in service - Supplied by the United States.

            • Saudi Arabia said on Thursday it was suspending oil shipments through the Red Sea’s Bab al-Mandeb strait, one of the world’s most important tanker routes, after Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis attacked two ships in the waterway.

                • Really bad day for the Coalition in Marib:
                  Houthi forces captured new areas near Sirwah airport. It looks like a small collapse for pro-Hadi army. There is almost no resistance, troops are busy in protecting Saudi border.

                  There's also ATGM vids of the the Houthis striking technicals and a T-55 on the front as well.

                  Bold: Surprising to see a T-80 as Yemen had less than 100 before the Civil War.

                  • That's unbelievable. The Houtis are under siege, against a heavily funded army and they still kick the asses of their opponents.

                    • I guess part of it can be explained by the fact Houthis have their backs against the wall, it's fight or be genocided. Their opponents are mostly mercs with no real stake in the fight besides their paycheck.

                        The thing is that everyone in Yemen has a gun, and everyone over 13 knows how and is willing to use it. If a tribe is united against the Saudi coalition then it takes a very large, dedicated and professional force to take their land and occupy it indefinately, which the coalition does not have.

                        • AP investigation: Yemen war binds US, allies, al-Qaida
                          ATAQ, Yemen (AP) — Again and again over the past two years, a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia and backed by the United States has claimed it won decisive victories that drove al-Qaida militants from their strongholds across Yemen and shattered their ability to attack the West.

                          Here’s what the victors did not disclose: many of their conquests came without firing a shot.

                          That’s because the coalition cut secret deals with al-Qaida fighters, paying some to leave key cities and towns and letting others retreat with weapons, equipment and wads of looted cash, an investigation by The Associated Press has found. Hundreds more were recruited to join the coalition itself.

                          These compromises and alliances have allowed al-Qaida militants to survive to fight another day — and risk strengthening the most dangerous branch of the terror network that carried out the 9/11 attacks. Key participants in the pacts said the U.S. was aware of the arrangements and held off on any drone strikes.

                            Also Southern Movement pulled thousands of fighters from the frontlines and relocated them to Aden.
                            Local sources confirmed that nearly a thousand fighters had left fronts of the west coast, after anti-UAE southern movement leader Hassan Baoum, called for southern Yemenis to leave all fronts of outside of South Yemen borders.
