    What's interesting is now the Houthis are inside Saudi territory, near Jizan (IIRC). Are they trying to seize the port?

    Alexander basically followed the Royal Road and took the cities along the way. Still in that area of the globe, to be more precise in Southern Iran, most of his troop unit died of thirst, because he forced them to come back in his expedition via a different path than the northern route he came through, and made them go through the Gedrosian Desert and Makran.

    I doubt the Houthis will be able to make major advances into Saudi territory because they do not have the supply infrastructure for it. Still I guess it makes sense for them to strike back at as many strategic Saudi facilities as they can to put the hurt on them. That city seems like a good target for them.

    Hodeida may get besieged soon if that info were true:

    Saudi regime's days are numbered. And no matter what America does, this regime is going to be ripped apart in a way, like never seen before in history. Their brutality knows no limits, they are haiywaanaath. Also, they will NOT be able to extract a drop of Oil or Natural Gas from Yemen.
