Saudi Arabia helpless in facing Yemenis' steadfastness: Commentator

A commentator believes the United States’ secret deployment of a team of elite commandos to the Yemeni border to help the Saudi military in battles against the Houthi Ansarullah movement shows Riyadh’s “helplessness” in facing the Yemenis' “steadfastness” in confronting the years-long war on the impoverished Arab nation.  

“The Americans are providing the Saudis with all means, political and non-political, military and non-military, to launch that aggression on the Yemeni people and still the steadfastness of the Yemenis and in spite of all the huge numbers of victims and people wounded or injured, still the aggression has not been able to achieve any of its political goals,” Mohammad Obaid told Press TV in an interview on Friday.

Citing US and European officials, The New York Times reported Thursday that about a dozen commandos with the US Army Special Forces, known as the Green Berets, had been deployed in December 2017 to Saudi Arabia’s southern border regions.

The secretive mission, according to the report, is aimed at helping Saudi forces locate Yemeni missile launch sites and destroy the missile supplies of the Houthi movement, Yemen’s de facto military power, which has been defending the country, along with allied forces, against the Saudi aggression.
