Talk:Operation Victory from God

From A Closer Look On Syria
Jump to navigation Jump to search


The place where the Victory from God operation (the Saudis must have another name for their attack) took place is in the Saada Governorate of Yemen, in an area extending 20 km into Yemen from the Saudi Border. The area is marked in a map shown the the Yemeni Army spokesman on the video linked to this story.

A road passes throug mountain passes south of the Alfarte Valley. Google maps does not show many labeled features. Someone has marked a subway station ("محطة") on the map along the road near the southern end of the battle area. There does not seem to be a direct road connection to Saudi Arabia, so I guess the Saudi and proxy troops originally came from the east.

P.S. - Searching for "محطة" brings up videos of a massive fire at the Jeddah railway station. -- Petri Krohn (talk) 09:40, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
