Nope and has never been. If the port was under the KSA/Yemen control, the Houthis would not have missiles smuggled into Yemen. The port is under Houthis control. I hope now the politicians stay away from this and hand the file to the military. Its been 5 years the Houthis is using the port to smuggle missiles into Yemen in numbers. We should not be complaining now, it is our fault and we deserve it. I just hope the pilot and the WSO safe and sound and are able to return home. RSAF did a surgical mission last night killing and capturing houthies in hundreds including high-rank leaders in the area where the jet was shot. See what happens when the military takes over?Is the port now in the hands of KSA/Yemen coalition?
Iran is providing them cruise missiles that they optimized for anti-aircraft use. Iran is spending a lot of money on these Houthi's. Seems they want domination over the Gulf region and using Houthi's to intimidate Saudi Arabia into accepting Iran as regional force they have to look up to and answer to.Houthis are not capable enough to handle hitech. arms /radars. Surely some professionally trained foreign militias are operating in the theater, along side Houthis.
Well i'm not sure if it's only Houthi tribe using Iranian /Russian missiles but surely they have expert advise available to them, which is even above IRGC level. Houthis by no means can handle foreign made SAMs etc. While Iran have millions of die hard & brain dead available from Pakistan /Afghanistan.Iran is providing them cruise missiles that they optimized for anti-aircraft use. Iran is spending a lot of money on these Houthi's. Seems they want domination over the Gulf region and using Houthi's to intimidate Saudi Arabia into accepting Iran as regional force they have to look up to and answer to.
