Unreleased Details Regarding Special Mission 'Safar'Salem-News.com Foreign Affairs
Yemini army forces were ready to face the attackers.
(SALEM, Ore.) - The news agency Al-Ahd Al-Yaminiah has provided a full report regarding the operations of "Safar" in the province of Ma'areb, in the east of Yemen.
According to this report, around two months before the operation the opposing forces were mounting a huge and comprehensive offensive with the end of finalizing the occupation of the capital of Yemen "San'a", they commenced recruiting Yemini and non-Yemini Takfiri forces and training them at Arab army bases within the proximity of Yemen borders.
Meanwhile, with theses preparations, they have brought about heavy media attacks and psychological pressures.
Two weeks before the due time of operation, the raiders have penetrated through the border point Al-Vadi-e, in the town of Al-Abar in the province of Hazarmoot in Yemini soil and moved toward the Safar base 107 in the province of Ma'reb in the east of San'a capital.
These forces comprise 4,800 Yemini nationals from Selfi radical forces, 2,000 soldiers from different nationals (Pakistani, Afghan, etc), and 800 Emirate special forces (Al-Khalifeh) as well as plenty of Arabian forces and a few Bahrainis.
These forces settled in barrack 107, and reportedly have had 900 American developed tanks and other pieces of defensive arms, as well as 20 American Apache helicopters. However, Yemini army forces and the committees of people who had dominant intelligence over the maneuvers of the strikers were ready to face the attackers.
Yemeni intelligence army forces have reported accurate information to the Yemeni army about the logistics and arsenals of the assailants from within the barrack and it was the first step in the dominance of Yemenis in this achievement.
A few days later, Saudi Arabia announced that San'a would have been conquered within 72 hours but Yemen's army foiled that operation.
On Friday 04 September, the order to fire of two Russian Ballistic "Toochka" missiles at the assailants' barracks was given.
These two missiles were fired from a desert area outside the town of Beyhan from the district of Shabooh in the South of Ma'reb province by Shabooh base 19 forces to a specific geographical location that has been given to Yemeni forces formerly, which accurately hit the target.
150 were killed by the first missile in this strike and 300 more were injured. The second missile boosted the number of killed and the wounded. In addition, three Apache aircraft, three missile launching bases and dozens of tanks were destroyed.
In the released figure, the number of Emirate forces killed was about 75, approximately 84 were wounded including "Ziyad Ben Mohammad Al Zayed" the grandson of the former Emirate chief, Vali Ahd Emareh Alfajireh, as well as the chief of the first Emirate base.
Some of the Emirates who fled the incident to different whereabouts disappeared; six were taken hostage by Al-Qaeda forces.
The Safar Operation was such a heavy a blow for the Emirates, that a three-day public mourning was announced in country. Barack Obama, the president of USA, sent condolence as sign of sympathy.
But the Saudis announced that they killed 10, while it has not announced any number on Yemeni and other Pakistani and Afghan forces.
Notwithstanding the consideration that the major number of Takfiri Yemeni and non-Yemeni forces far outnumber that of Gulf forces, it can be estimated that the official figure of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the Emirates have manifold differences from the real figure.
The first-hand news from the people who took part in the rescue of the wounded revealed that no help was given to forces from other nationals whatsoever, and the Saudi forces gave priority to Gulf wounded over Yemeni ones.
Some Yemeni casualties were said to have been aboard choppers to be transferred to Care Centres when they were taken out of planes.
Heavy news media censorship not only concealed the details of Safar Operation, but also the related news about the growing conflict between Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. News sources have stated that the impacts of this conflict will unravel in the days to follow.
