The Saudi-American coalition will be surprised by the response of the Yemeni army and Ansarallah if the Stockholm agreement fails.
The website al-Najm al-Thaqib wrote in an article entitled “What will Yemen’s response be if the Swedish agreement fails? » :
“Several questions were raised about Yemeni military and strategic responses to the failure of the agreement reached in Sweden and the resumption of Saudi-Emirati coalition military operations in Hudaydah.
Analysts examined the different dimensions of a resumption of the Battle of Hudaydah, a battle that is at the centre of the region’s political and strategic concerns because of its economic and security implications. These military incidents were very complicated for the Riyadh-Abou Dhabi coalition, to the point that after suffering heavy material damage and loss of life, it was forced to put aside the military option and travel to Sweden to sit at the negotiating table.
The leader of the Yemeni revolution, Abdel Malek Badreddine al-Houthi, threatened the Saudi coalition in his recent speech by holding it responsible for the failure of the Stockholm Agreement and the resumption of the Hudaydah battle, and by implicitly stating that strategic deterrence measures have been taken by the Yemeni army, which is only waiting for an order to respond to the failure of the Hudaydah Agreement.
Without a doubt, Yemeni forces are in a position to do so, as the Saudi-Emergia coalition is not able to repel them. The advice that the Leader of the Yemeni Revolution has given to the belligerents, including the United Arab Emirates, is proof that this option is on the table and that Yemenis can use it at any time and under any circumstances,” al-Najm al-Thaqib added.
The United Arab Emirates, including its capital Abu Dhabi, is reportedly the first target of Yemeni anger, as it is the United Arab Emirates that is leading the battle of Hudaydah.
The Yemeni army is capable, as it has done in the past, of bombarding vital infrastructure inside the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia by firing missiles or using drones. The missiles available to the Yemeni ballistic unit are among the priority options for responding to the Saudi coalition. This unit has various missiles, including cruise missiles that were used to target the Brakah nuclear power plant in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. »
“UAVs are the other preferred option and offer an alternative to missiles to bomb targets inside Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Previously, a Samad-3 drone had targeted the United Arab Emirates’ international airports in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This drone has played a crucial role in destabilizing the small country of the United Arab Emirates by driving foreign investment away,” said al-Najm al-Thaqib.
The site concludes: “It must finally be said that Yemen is already ready to provide a response in the event of a resumption of the Battle of Hudaydah. The Yemeni army has prepared some stunning and surprising answers that will amaze its friends as much as its enemies. The year 2019 will be the year of the drones. Ansarallah’s army and fighters will unveil their new sophisticated reconnaissance drones at the appropriate time. »
