TEHRAN (FNA)- Several US military advisors of the Riyadh government's army were killed and wounded in heavy clashes with Yemen's revolutionary forces in Saudi Arabia's Najran region.Uh wow.
"The Yemeni revolutionary committee forces killed three US military advisors and wounded two others in the Southern province of Najran," Abu Hessam, a senior Ansarullah commander, told FNA on Sunday.
He noted that seven Saudi military men were also killed in the clashes with Yemeni forces.
Abu Hessam did not disclose the names of the American military advisors.
On Saturday, media reports revealed that the US has invaded and occupied Yemen's strategic Island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean and is now building up its biggest naval base there.
"Hundreds of workers from Asian countries have been deployed by the US navy to construct its biggest naval base on the island," Arabic-language Al-Masyra TV quoted a Spanish-language newspaper as saying.
Socotra is a small archipelago of four islands in the Indian Ocean; the largest island, also called Socotra, is about 95 percent of the landmass of the archipelago. Socotra is located between the continents of Asia and Africa.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 158 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,535 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Military advisors can mean anything but the number is kinda surprising. If we're thinking "tactically" here then that sounds like a Special Forces A-team got hit and hit hard....of course it could also be a team from SAIC that's providing intel assistance....
I just don't know and will be looking for more info on this.
The blurb about a naval base is also noteworthy. One thing is certain. The Pentagon has been too silent in the face of obvious military setbacks to simply ignore this news.
In an information vacuum you take what you can get and dismiss it only after its been proven false.
Its just the nature of this war.
