Serving the Brotherhood and the Houthis turns "Al-Jawf" into a launching pad for Iran's "rallies".English - Sunday 23 October 2022 الساعة 10:33 am
The attack that targeted the Dabba oil port in Hadhramaut Governorate, on Friday, revealed that Al-Jawf Governorate, in northern Yemen, had turned into a main platform on which Iran’s arm relied in carrying out its attacks using Iranian missiles and drones.
Two drones targeted the port after the start of the process of unloading a shipment of crude oil to a Greek oil tanker, in an attack adopted by the Houthi group, which it said was an implementation of its threats to prevent the process of exporting oil from the liberated governorates as a blackmail card to implement its demands to share oil revenues.
Hadhramaut Governor Mabkhout bin Madi confirmed in his statements after the incident that the marches that targeted the oil port were launched by the Houthi militia from an area located between the governorates of Ma'rib and Al-Jawf, in the latest attack carried out by the militias from this area.
The group carried out several missile and drone attacks from Al-Jawf Governorate, the latest of which was an attempt to target the UAE capital Abu Dhabi with two ballistic missiles in late January, followed by the announcement by the UAE Ministry of Defense that its F16 aircraft destroyed a missile launcher in the Yemeni governorate of Al-Jawf.
The Houthi attack on the UAE came as a desperate response to the humiliating defeat that his militia received by expelling them from the districts of Bayhan in Shabwa and Harib district in Marib at the hands of the forces of the southern giants backed by the UAE, 3 months after the fall of these areas without little resistance in the hands of the Houthi militia following the withdrawal of loyal forces to the Brotherhood.
It is the same scene that occurred in Al-Jawf Governorate in March 2020, when the capital of the governorate and its liberated directorates fell into the hands of the Houthi militia, after the forces affiliated with the legitimacy withdrew from them without resistance, despite the heavy military loss that the matter represented for a governorate that is a strategic patch in the geography of the conflict in Yemen.
The governorate, which is one of the largest governorates in Yemen, has an area that mediates 5 important governorates, starting with the oil governorates of Hadramawt and Ma'rib, passing through Sana'a and Amran and ending with Saada, in addition to a long strip of border with Saudi Arabia. Which explains its transformation today into an ideal platform for targeting oil fields and export ports, as well as the closest point to targeting the coalition countries.
A gain that would not have been obtained by the Houthi group had it not been for the fruits of the relationship with the Brotherhood, the most important of which was manifested in the latter’s handing over of Al-Jawf Governorate to the first, after the legitimate forces there received orders to withdraw via the “wireless” with the recognition of the prominent Brotherhood leader and former leader of the Al-Jawf resistance, Al-Hassan Ali Abkar, who He held the responsibility for the recently ousted governor, Amin Al-Akimi, who appeared in a photo of him gathering with Houthi leaders from the province, days before the scene of the fall.
What reinforces this is the scene of the armed parade that the Brotherhood is currently carrying out in Al-Jawf near the Saudi border with hundreds of gunmen and dozens of crews, in rejection of the decision to dismiss Al-Okimi, which exposes its complicity in handing the province over to Al-Houthi and turning it today into a platform for the Iranian regime’s weapons against the Yemenis and their neighbors.
