We’re baaaaack — Round 2
Whew! Welcome back, dear Rantburgers! It looks like badanov
Correction: not badanov, Gloria and her faithful assistant have our gratitude
got us restarted after Fred Pruitt’s internet provider figured out why we went down just after 9 a.m. ET yesterday morning.

Special thanks to badanov and Besoeker for quickly putting up articles this morning. Y’all probably want to catch up on yesterday’s posts, too, though comments are closed. If you simply must comment on something from yesterday, this thread is a good place. :-)
Thank you to Gloria or whomever got it going!

Houthis launch attacks on Soddys in Al Jawf and Marib
The Yemeni Houthis (Ansar Allah) have resumed active operations against Saudi-backed forces in the provinces of Marib and Al-Jawf.

According to reports by pro-Houthi sources, the recent strikes on the Saudi-occupied city of Marib destroyed weapon and ammunition depots there and now Saudi proxies lack supplies there. This worsened the situation for pro-Saudi forces in this area.

At the same time, the Saudi Air Force carried out a new series of strikes on what it calls ‘Houthi targets’ across the country. Nonetheless, as the previous years of the war demonstrated, the intense air campaign is not enough to change the situation on the battleground if your infantry units are ready to surrender.

Soddys defend against Houthi drone attacks
The Saud-led coalition announced on February 7 that its air-defense forces had intercepted four suicide drones which were launched by the Houthis (Ansar Allah) from Yemen.

The first drone was intercepted by the coalition’s air-defense means in the morning. The remaining three were downed in the evening hours.

In a statement, Colonel Turki Al-Malki, a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, claimed that the drones were launched at civilian targets in the Kingdom.
