A video from the Yemeni military shows them running down and shooting fleeing Houthis as they fire from an American made Oshkosh M-ATV.
What should be the equivalent of “shooting fish in a barrel” actually poses a complicated task for the poorly trained Yemeni troops as they blind fire and correct multiple stoppages trying to kill of the Houthis rebels.
Yet, the Yemenis have enough ammunition and fuel to overcome for their lack of basic soldier skills. The Houthis, on the other hand, appear to be out of ammo, as they do not noticeably fire back.
The video ends with the scene of the crumpled corpse of a Houthi fighter smashed into the tire tracks of the several-ton Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle.
