Houthis attacking Saudi positions in Jizan region | March 2019 | Saudi Arabia
I knew Saudis were bad but goddamn. Those guys were running helter skelter without their personal weapons. That was not a tactical retreat, it was pure ass-saving.

That's a lot of deaths to sandal wearing rebels. Why, oh why, does Saudi provoke Iran?

Iranian military may not be world class but it sure as hell won't die like this. Seeing this, I'm pretty sure they'd easily cut through these guys like hot knife through butter.

The #Saudi Air Force during the retreat from #Yemeni city of Al-Hazm inflicted 12 attacks on its own command post, so as not to leave abandoned machinery & equipment to Houthis. The photo shows the destroyed armored Toyota and 2 #Oshkosh M-ATV (command & special forces version).

Turkish Air Forces Drill in the Mediterranean Draws Attention
1587215439970.png


According to the statement made by the Ministry of National Defense (MND), Turkish Air Forces conducted a highly important drill over Mediterranean on Friday, April 17, 2020.

Some of the units joining the drill were surveilled via civil air traffic control sites. A certain part of flight routes of 3 KC-135R aerial refueling aircrafts, 1 E7T Peace Eagle airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft and C-130 transport aircraft was surveilled over civil air traffic control sites. Whereas E7T Peace Eagle occasionally surveilles over the region, 3 aerial refueling aircrafts has drawn attention, due to the rarity of them in such missions. A number of either F-16 or F-4 fighter planes are estimated to have joined the drill.
