Saudi Arabia Resorts To Bombing Own Territory Amid Houthi Invasion Of Southern Province

As Saudi Arabia continues to show its military weakness, it is also likely to embolden dissidents inside the country who have been kept down in the past by threat of Saudi security forces.

In its agitation and panic over the recent Houthi invasion of Saudi territory and overtaking of Saudi military installations on the Yemeni border, KSA is now attempting to take back control of its Jizan region.

Fully engrossed in its illegal war on the Yemeni people, the Saudis responded rather slowly to aninvasion of their own territory, demonstrating even further that Saudi military forces are nothing but a paper tiger incapable of even defending their own territory much less invading and defeating another country.

On August 17, Saudi forces attempted to break the Houthi forces’ control over their positions in the Jizan Region. The Saudi air raids took place after three Houthi ballistic missiles struck their positions in Jizan.

Interestingly enough, the air raids took place primarily in the village of Al-Qamr. The Saudi bombings were indiscriminate and civilians were largely the target of the helicopter-based attack, according to reports by al-Masirah News Agency and Al-Masdar.

KSA is now not only losing its war in Yemen but it is losing territory within its own borders as the Houthis penetrate at least 10kms into the country.

In a story that went virtually unreported in the West, the Houthis managed to wrest control of three Saudi military bases in Saudi Arabia’s Jizan province, located near the Saudi-Yemen border in January of this year. The bases Jabal al-Doud, al-Aril, and Madba were all seized by Houthi forces and fighters with “allied Popular Committees.”

In addition, the Houthi forces along with Yemeni soldiers launched retaliatory shelling strikes inside Saudi Arabia’s al-Makhrouq military base in the southern Najran region.

Houthis and allied Yemeni fighters have long been inflicting heavy damage upon Saudi and Saudi-led coalition troops and vehicles deployed on the ground inside Yemen as well as occasionally downing coalition jets. The fighters have also managed to damage Saudi ships located off the coast.

In July, 2016, Houthi forces launched ballistic missiles into Saudi Arabia. According to reports coming from Al-Masdar, Houthis launched a Tochka ballistic missile toward the Ahad al-Masarihah Military camp, resulting in a heavy death toll of Saudi soldiers as well the destruction of several armored vehicles.

In addition, it was announced in early August that a coalition that will function as a “political council” is in the works between the Houthis and fighters loyal to former President Saleh, a move that flies in the face of the GCC resolutions regarding the governing structure of Yemen.

As KSA continues to show its military weakness, it is also likely to embolden dissidents inside the country who have been kept down in the past by threat of KSA’s security forces. With such abysmal failure of KSA to actually accomplish military goals and with its targeting of its own citizens indiscriminately, dissatisfaction with the feudal monarchy may soon reach new heights, spelling ruin to the Western-supported kingdom.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police




The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
