Awakening Saudi Arabia from the illusion of victory
The operation 7th Deterrence carried out by the Yemeni army against the Saudi oil sites is a legitimate right to awaken Saudi Arabia from illusion of achieving victory.
The successful military operation carried out by the armed forces on Saturday in the Saudi depth, with eight Sammad 10 aircraft and six ballistic missiles on Aramco facilities Eastern Province of Ras Tanura in Dammam region, and other areas of Jizan and Najran and Jeddah, came within the framework of the legitimate response to the crimes of the Saudi-led coalition against Yemen, which various types of weapons have been used to destroy the infrastructures of the Yemeni people.
For seven years, the coalition has the strongest military arsenal and controlled a large financial and oil stock, has unable to achieve anything noteworthy on the ground. All its military attempts failed miserably in front of the heroes of the Yemeni army and popular forces, which it prompted many local politicians and military observers to wonder about the reasons for the complete impotence of the coalition and its catastrophic failure, which was inflicted on the coalition countries of by the blockaded army.
Now, the armed forces of the coalition’s countries are in a state of great collapse and the issue of recognizing and announcing it has become only a matter of time. They are living a kind of arrogance, and the time will come soon to admit defeat publicly to full view of the whole world.
Miscalculations that the countries of coalition relied on when we launched the war on Yemen, they thought that Yemen was an easy prey, and the issue of subjugating and controlling it in a few days, depending on a modern and large military arsenal.
Shortly after waging war, those countries began at the review of the wrong accounts; But they were too late, when the Yemeni army was able to turn the table by taking the initiative and directing painful blows to the countries of Saudi-led coalition that have not yet recovered from the shock and cruelty of defeat.
