    Death toll currently at 116.

    Saudi Arabia and the UAE have condemned the Houthi missile attack on an Army camp housing Saudi , coalition soldiers and mercenaries as a "terrorist' attack.

    How is it "terrorist". The Saudis are the invading force. The attack was against a military target. This is why the term "terrorist" is utterly meaningless now. It gets applied against anyone opposing the actions of the entity using the term.

    When Saudi and the UAE bomb civilians and starve them, to force political change, that isn't considered "terrorism" by the US or any of the world powers.

    This is horrible and could lead to greater US involvement. That being said it was war action during war time.

    I don’t like to celebrate death but I get a certain satisfaction seeing the Saudis eat shit. If only it could have been 116 members of the royal family.

    Reports are not saying how many Saudi soldiers died. They say pro Saudi Yemeni soldiers died. News is also saying this missile attack came after Saudi backed government forces carried out barrages against the Houthis.

    Saudi Arabia routinely downplays their dead. They don't want to lose face and more importantly they don't want the Saudi public to turn against Bin Salman, the architect of the war.

    First thing is first!

    THERE ARE NO SAUDI FORCES IN YEMEN...... The headline is misleading what they have is local Yemeni forces loyal to the current president of Yemen Hadi and coupled with some International mercenaries from Other arab countries and South Americans.

    The saudis are using aerial bombings mostly but as for the war on the ground it's yemenis vs yemenis 100% vs 90% at times and the other 10% are mercenaries helping the Hadi gov't.. There you have it. For Saudi Arabia this is a proxy war they are not on the ground

    The problem with Saudi is that unless they can get competent mercenaries to fight their wars , along with planning , advising and logistical help from Uncle Sam, they are prone to fcuk things up monumentally . Cause at the end of the day, they are a bunch of pampered entitles arrogant douchebags who can't fight for shit.

    So the Houthis are lying when they claimed to have captured Saudi soldiers?
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...s-take-control-of-three-najran-military-bases

    --

    In May 2018, Al Jazeera said more than a 1000 Saudi soldeirs have been killed in Yemen since the Saudi led intervention.
    https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018...s-killed-yemen-war-began-180528174808387.html

    --

    How can there be no Saudi soldiers in Yemen when the war is a Saudi led intervention?

    --

    Is Reuters lying?
    ADEN (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia has deployed more troops in southern Yemen to try to contain clashes between nominal allies in the Saudi-led military coalition fighting the Houthis that risk further fragmenting the country.

    The only Saudi forces involved are near the Yemen border they have penetrated little bit into yemen but not that much. Just like Turkey with east of euphrates. The saudis are mainly concentrated there but in the other regions it's Yemenis and Mercenaries doing the fighting.

    As for the Saudis up north they have no intention of penetrating further but rather believe Hadi's forces, the Mercenaries and the aerial bombings coupled with patience will overcome the Houthis eventually. There are no Saudi forces in Marib

    I added the Reuters link while you were replying. It says there are Saudis in Southern Yemen.

    It's not really true or an error on behalf of the journalist I can tell you this much.

    The Aden incident was last year I believe that was for a separate incident but Saudi forces are not deployed militarily anywhere in south or central yemen for engagement at all.

    The UAE however has a bunch of Mercenaries there and foreign UAE forces..! You even have blackwater there who has numerous South Americans as Mercenaries and others like Sudanese and other countries.

    It's a mercenary heaven! Or As Tupac would call it Thug mansion to ''Mercenary Mansion''

    Haven't you read any MSM coverage on this?

    The Saudi puppet government is supposedly the legal government of Yemen. Attack a legal government and you are a terrorist. Unless that legal government is Iran, and then you are a freedom fighter.

    Why should anyone believe you over Reuters. You were already proven wrong once in this very thread.

    Gonna need some sources, otherwise you are just a shill for the saudi .
