New Relapse for Riyadh-Washington Alliance in Yemen
Yemen: With the aim of obstructing liberating, the last stronghold of US-Saudi mercenaries in northeastern Yemen in Marib, the coalition opened a new front in Al-Baidha towards the areas where the previous confrontations between the Army and the Popular Committees had stopped at the end of 2020.
At the end of 2020, Al-Qaeda was forced to participate in a battle whose timing was chosen by the Army and the Popular Committees, which ended with the fall of its most important strongholds in Yemen.
The battle’s fire has not been completely extinguished yet, and everyone is still waiting for what Sana’a will say about the details of the battle’s conclusions. Very large spoils were seized by the Army and the Committees like military camps belonging to Al-Qaeda, and the so-called national Army loyal to the coalition on the border with Shabwa governorate.
Al-Qaeda and Daesh cooperation and fighting alongside the coalition is not new in the war in Yemen. International media, including the American and British, have documented the participation of these two criminal organizations alongside the coalition forces and, and the leaders of the two organizations admitted this in more than one audio recording of their participation in fighting on several fronts against Ansarullah.
Al-Baidha battle, according to military experts, aimed to distract the Army and the Committees from liberating Marib.
Experts point out that the US is directly managing the battle of Marib, are trying to re-implement the loophole that turned the scales of the war between the Zionist entity and Egypt in the October War of 73.
However, Yemeni military response was completely different from the reaction of the Egyptian President Sadat at the time, who committed the fatal military mistake by ignoring the gap and not quickly addressing it. Sana’a forces quickly repositioned and established their points around the city of Marib, Within two days, it was able to restore the control of the Al-Zahir district and all the areas that were controlled by Al-Qaeda in Al-Baidha.
According to experts, the advance of the Sana’a forces to this depth indicates the pre-prepared strategic plan that may have found the opportunity to implement it, or that al-Qaeda sudden collapse and its fragility and weakness led to this result and the development of the attack.
