BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The commander of the Houthi Air Force and Air Defense, Major-General Ibrahim Al-Shami, has been reported dead in Sanaa, the Yemeni group confirmed this afternoon.

According to the reports, the Houthi commander was rushed to a local hospital in the Yemeni capital this week after suffering a massive heart attack.

Al-Shami was considered the mastermind behind the Houthi air defense program and one of the highest-ranking commanders in the Yemeni group.

He helped develop the Houthi ballistic missile program which has wreaked havoc on neighboring Saudi Arabia for more than three years now.

No further details were released by the Yemeni group at this time.

“Daeshbag sux”‘s comments are laughable. 1. The General died through natural causes. 2. Yemen’s missiles are of their own – Iran only provides good GPS positioning and payload stuff according to actual experts. 3. Yemen’s missiles are indeed wreaking havoc on their enemies and their mid-range and long-range missiles have caused precise strikes leading to hundreds of enemy casualties. Their is a vast amount of verifiable multimedia evidence to prove it. The Patriot defense systems even according to USAF experts has been a colossal failure. Even the NYT and various other MSM outlets have openly said this. Their are even… Read more »

I know about a combination of two components that provoke a massive hart failure within a minute and you can’t prove the poisoning since the usual poison alone stays at levels that can be met by using some widely spread chemicals and the other components, which is used as a catalyst, thus multiplying the poison’s effect, will be dissolved before the body reaches the autopsy room…
My bet goes for a poisoning.

Houthi missiles are FAR from ‘wrecking havoc’. Their Iranian Qiam (Scud mods) or other ‘Bulkan’ (Scud copies), Tochka and Sa-2 customised into ballistic missiles managed to hit when Houthis started to use these, but soon Patriot batteries and targetting radars were deployed. Since, very few managed to go through the “shield”. Even before this, KSA was far from being plunged into chaos, since ‘wreaking havoc’ means ravaging at such a point… In fact, if some forces wreak havoc, these are KSA and UA air forces on Houthi-controlled territories which, BTW, have shrank of 50% since their coup d’état! AMN may… Read more »

What a bunch of nonsense. You truly do make stuff out your rear end you filthy Zionist cockroach 🙂 . 1. The General died through natural means. 2. The long rage and mid range ballistic missiles ARE precise and destroying enemies in hundreds with precise targets. This is even accepted by US analysts. There is enough verifiable multimedia evidence to prove this. The Patriot batteries are an epic failure – they failed for both Israel and Saudi Arabia. 3. Ansar’Allah (aka Houthis) never worked with the US, however they are allies with the Yemeni Army which had some dealings with… Read more »
