BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – In a major development in northern Yemen, the UAE-backed Southern Movement has withdrawn from the Saudi-led battle against the Ansarallah forces in the Sanaa, Marib, Jizan, and Hajjah governorates.

According to reports from northern Yemen, the Southern Movement made the decision to withdraw from this battle after Saudi-backed Islah forces captured Aden city in the southern part of the city on Wednesday.

Prior to the capture of Aden by the Islah forces, the Southern Movement had taken control of the city after a few days of fighting.

The Islah Party (var. Al-Tajma’ Al-Yemeni Al-Islah) has been one of the main forces fighting the Ansarallah troops in northern Yemen; however, the Southern Movement has been providing much needed reinforcements to a number of fronts in this region of the country.

For the Ansarallah forces, this could be a turning point in several battles in northern Yemen, including the ongoing fight for the Nihm District of eastern Sana’a.

All what I said before are occuring now in Yemen despite the zionists trolls coming here believing in Santa Claus LOL, how a separatists movement could stay with the loyalists if they don’t want to rule the north ? Without counting the islamists like the Islah party, AQAP and ISIS or the Abbas brigade (Qatari group in Yemen) they are all thugs, criminals, mafias without ideology, this “islamic” Saudi-UAE coalition will dissolve from itself giving victory to the chiites Houthis and Iran who are more united with strong ideology, morever the pro-Houthis have the majority in Yemen if you watched… Read more »

Israeli disinfo trolls like deashbagsux have their head to far up their own asses to ever admit they are wrong. Then again the bulk of Jews are clinically psychotic, and psychos never feel they are wrong.

For those new to the problem in the Yemen you have a Saudi backed Sunni Yemeni “Government” headed by Hadi who is still in Saudi Arabia (either based there or still under house by the Saudis) grabbing back Aden off the Emirates backed southern Sunni separatist Yemini forces. This has resulted in the latter pulling their partnership with the former in their joint attack on the mostly northern Shite Yemeni Houthis. Basically a foreign fueled civil war in the Yemen including other actors such as the Americans, Brits, etc as weapons sellers and enablers of the Sunni autocrats in Saudi… Read more »

Looks like this quick and easy war Saudi Arabia envisaged in Yemen is costing them a little more than expected. America will be happy with the munitions replacements required. They would probably resupply the Houthis if they could get away with it.Good that the coalition are killing each other .
