BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The Saudi-backed Islah forces and Yemeni Army launched a big counter-offensive in the Al-Jawf Governorate on Monday, as they attempt to reclaim the territories they lost over the last two weeks.

According to pro-government media, the Islah forces and Yemeni Army managed to retake Al-Khanjar Camp in Al-Jawf after a fierce battle with the Ansarallah troops on Monday morning.

Furthermore, the reports said the Islah forces and Yemeni Army also opened a road linking the Khub and Al-Sha’af districts of the neighboring Mar’ib Governorate.

Last week, the Ansarallah forces scored a decisive victory in the Al-Jawf Governorate when their troops captured Al-Hazm city.

Al-Hazm is the administrative capital of the Al-Jawf Governorate and it was considered a long-time stronghold of the Islah forces.

1st town captured in 5 years while the Iranian proxies have lost the two thirds of the territory they managed to capture until June 2015. The situation is very similar to what is happening in Syria, with Iran playing the same dirty game on Yemen that Turkey plays on Syria while the Saudis are playing Russia’s role. Enough of all these religious fanatics. The Bani Saud should consider banning the Hajj and vaporising the Ka’aba. As long this pseudo-religion which is nothing else than a fascist political program with a book worst than ‘Mein Kampf’ won’t be eradicated, terrorism will… Read more »

All that money all those hundred of billions invested in weapons for your jihadi Saudi friends and half a decade of fighting and this is the best those Saudi’s can do. Talk about pathetic excuse you are giving to the Saudi Arabia’s and the jihadis quagmire in Yemen, then again you Israelis are not that bright when it comes to the military, you lost in Syria and you lost in Yemen daeshbags-lover. Your pathetic settler state can’t even conquer an area the size of Gaza.

Daeshbags-Sux and Leith Abou Fadel are hypocrites and liers supporting the Islamo-Fascists, MBs, Jihadists and the Salafists while their true enemy is Iran and the Shiites who are also the first enemies of ISIS and Al Qaidah.

Iran and the shiites are considered worst than westerners by ISIS, AQ and the Jihadists, whoever who are against Iran are supporting the interest of ISIS and the Jihadists in the world. Iran is not a threat for the west, they don’t support the Jihadists and they are not sunnis, they have only problem with Palestinian conflict and Israel.
