ISIS participation in the Marib battles against Ansar Allah
ISWNews Analysis Group: The Yemeni branch of the ISIS terrorist group officially announced its participation in the Marib battles against Ansar Allah forces.
In the statement, ISIS claimed to have clashed with Ansar Allah in the al-Kasarat area (east of Madghal), and allegedly took control of two areas on this front and imposed heavy casualties to Ansar Allah forces.
The allegations come as clashes continue in the eastern part of al-Kasarat while the Saudi coalition warplanes bombing the area.
ISIS cooperation with the Saudi coalition against Ansar Allah has already been proven in the areas of Sanaa, Saadah, east of al-Jawf and north of al-Baydha, and its documents and news are available in the archives of ‘ISWNews.com‘. So this alliance is not new.
But the persistence of international organizations and some Western media on their positions against the rule and existence of Ansar Allah in Yemen is a matter that is very surprising and questionable!
“Houthis”, “Shiite militias”, “coup plotters”, etc. are the titles used by these media outlets to portray Ansar Allah as a minority in the religious and political spheres of Yemen, while at least 65% of the total population of Yemen resides in Ansar Allah areas and at least 52% of the total population of Yemen is in favor of the Salvation government and Ansar Allah.
