Houthi rebels wreak havoc by knocking out multiple Saudi-coalition vehicles in back-to-back-to-back TOW missile strikes. Purportedly taking place in mountainous border region between Yemen and Saudi Arabia, the well-armed Houthis continue to devastate any coalition operations in the area.
A propaganda mashup video of Houthi rebels knocking out multiple Saudi-coalition vehicles has been released. The video initially captures a close infantry fight between the two sides over a contested ridgeline before showing several guided Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided (TOW) missile strikes on coalition vehicles.
The conflict in Yemen has developed into a proxy contest between regional powers; with the Iranians arming the Shia Houthis, and the Saudis leading a Sunni coalition. The Saudis have the unfavorable task of occupying the rugged and mountainous regions to the northwest of the country. The terrain largely favors the defenders who are armed with advanced Iranian weapons. With these weapons, this terrain, and the longstanding rivalries between the Saudi regime and the Iranians unlikely to subside anytime soon, Yemen is likely to remain one of the most dangerous nations on Earth.
