Although Iran/Hizbo managed to smuggle some equipment to the Houhties on top of what they have been given by Ali Salah yet they are losing to the legitimate government. The Houthis are a replica of Hizbollah and the Iranian regime. for 40 years now Hassan Nasrullah shouting from his tunnel. not even able to walk down the street of where he lives.
Hadi is hiding in another country, Nasrallah and Al-Maliki (and Bashar Al-Assad as well) are in their own homeland fighting external enemies.

The KSA-backed Hadi regime has already been eliminated by the STC. 4 years after Saudi invasion of Yemen, Houthis still control Sana'a and now KSA-backed Hadi regime even lost Aden. I think KSA-backed Hadi will be staying safe underground in KSA for a long time yet.

Iran Says It Has Dispatched Two Warships To Gulf Of Aden
August 26, 2019

Iran has dispatched a destroyer and a helicopter-carrying support ship to Gulf of Aden “to provide security for Islamic Republic vessels in international waters”, the chief of staff of Iran’s army announced.

Admiral Habibollah Sayari added that the two warships, destroyer Sahand and helicopter ship Kharg, will “escort” commercial vessels in the Sea of Oman and the Gulf of Aden.

In late 2018, Iran had claimed the two warships were dispatched to South America as part of efforts to expand its naval presence around the world.

The Gulf of Aden lies south of Yemen and on the east it connects with the Arabian Sea, which in turn joins the Sea of Oman to further north.

The announcement comes at a time of heightened tensions in the Persian Gulf region, where the United States has been trying to assemble a coalition
to protect shipping, after attacks in May June targeting oil tankers and the seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker by Iran in July.

Destroyer Sahand was launched in late 2018 and is equipped with naval artillery and surface -to-surface missiles, as well as of a helicopter pad. At its inauguration ceremony, the commander of army’s navy had said Sahand is the most advanced warship in Iran’s navy.

LONDON: UN special envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths expressed his support for negotiations between the Yemeni government and southern separatists that started in Jeddah on Wednesday.

Yemen’s government officials started talks with the country’s southern separatists of the Southern Transitional Council (STC) in Jeddah on Wednesday in a bid to end fighting in Aden and other southern provinces, a Yemeni official said.

The delegation, which landed in the Kingdom on Tuesday, is headed by Aidroos Al-Zubaidi, the council’s leader.

Its arrival comes after Saudi Arabia called for talks in the Kingdom to restore calm to southern Yemen after fighting between the STC and government troops last month.

Emirati minister of state of foreign affairs Anwar Gargash said on Wednesday that he was was confident that the Jeddah meeting will succeed in uniting the two sides against what he called the “Houthi coup.”

He also thanked Saudi Arabia for “leading the coalition politically and militarily with care and skill.”

The Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen said it intercepted and destroyed an explosives-laden boat launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militias on Thursday.

"The Coalition's naval forces detected an attempt by the terrorist Houthi militia backed by Iran to carry out an imminent act of aggression and terrorism south of the Red Sea using an unmanned, rigged boat ... launched from Hodeidah province," Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said in a statement.

Maliki said the foiled attack represented a threat to regional and international security and the safety of maritime routes and international trade.

He stressed that the Coalition’s Joint Forces Command continues to implement deterrent measures against the insurgents by neutralizing and destroying their capabilities.

  • Campaigners target UN European headquarters in protest against Houthis
GENEVA: Yemeni demonstrators were gathered outside the UN’s European headquarters in Geneva on Saturday to highlight the torture and killings of civilians, which they say have been carried out by the Houthi militia.

The protestors say there has also been a large number of people injured due to the indiscriminate use of weapons, while people’s houses, historic sites and educational institutions have been destroyed, and many families have been displaced.

They also say members of the press and have been oppressed, preventing them from enjoying a freedom of expression.

The protest by members of the International Yemeni Diaspora Federation and allied human rights organizations marked the anniversary of the Houthis’ coup.

On this day Houthi militia protested against the government’s decision to lift subsidies on oil derivatives.

The situation later escalated and erupted into clashes between the Houthis and the forces of Ali Abdullah Saleh, as well as the militias of the Yemeni Congregation for Reform and Ali Mohsen Al-Ahmar.

More than 250 Yemenis, Arabs, Europeans, human rights activists and journalists demanded the condemnation of the crimes committed by the Houthis and the silence of the UN, the Security Council and the Human Rights Council.

The protesters also condemned the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths for his silence and for resorting to pampering as a means to deal with the Houthis who continue to kill, destroy and intimidate benefiting from the UN’s soft positions.

They also denounced the complacency of the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, Lisa Grande and her constant defense of the Houthis, calling on the International Community to help save Yemen from the militias.

Protesters handed out leaflets and called for the classification of the Houthi militia as a terrorist group as their ideology is similar to that of Daesh, Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah.

The Federation’s President, Dr. Hayaf Khalid Rabih demanded the issue be dealt with as a humanitarian one and not political.

He also asked the international community to act and exert pressure on the Houthis to hand over their weapons, disband the group of eminent experts and challenge the validity of their report.

Yemenis delivered speeches in Arabic, French and English expressing their frustration due to indifference and silence of the international community in the face of their people’s suffering.

They called on the Security Council and the Human Rights Council to adopt decisions condemning and criminalizing the Houthis and asked for all “peace-loving nations and people to stand up to the Iran-Backed militia.”
