that their border with Yemen is now under their control.
Jizan, Asharq Al-Awsat-Saudi military sources confirmed yesterday that many of the commanders of the Huthi infiltrators have been killed, while a number of others have been captured attempting to flee the conflict in disguise.
This comes at the same time that the Royal Saudi Air Force is launching constant attacks against the Huthi insurgent’s strategic camps and fortifications, which sources confirmed were completely destroyed.
Analysis. I don’t know if this is a win for the “good guys” or not. It is a win for the better guys at least in this conflict pairing. Whether or not this will be considered a serious set back by the Iranians is open for debate. I don’t doubt that it will deter Iranian mischief without something else to distract them.
The internal dissent that world Threats documents here almost daily may be that distraction. I do believe that the internal dissent must grow to more of a threat to the Supreme Leader than it appears now.
December 7 may tell us a lot about the strength of the anti Khamenei movement. To distract the regime from foreign adventures, it must feel sufficiently threatened to recall the greater part of the Qods Force to suppress the people.
The other outcome of a messy December Seventh may be an increase in foreign adventures in an attempt to generate unity through war. This Yemen adventure may be a symptom of this attempt to create unity.
